Allowing Ants to Free-Roam and Live in my Room

  • Published: 20 October 2018
  • Fire ants, Crazy Ants, Asian Bullet Ants, even Dracula and Trap-Jaw ants, all mixed in a single Ant Room, we call the "Antiverse". But this week, for the very first time on this channel, a special ant colony in the Ant Room is permitted to live freely, to forage, and travel wherever they need to. In this episode, we uncover the mystery of where these ants emerged from, as well as the sheer brilliance and resourcefulness of the colony. Where does this free-roaming ant colony decide to nest? How does this colony manage to gather the food? The answers will surprise you. Hope you enjoy another epic ant story within the Antiverse.

    Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

                      This video SAVED me. My ants escaped and because of this video, the first place I check was under the nest in the hydration chamber! Luckily, I caught all the workers and the queen and returned them safely into the nest.

                          You have to cover it ASAP because if you don’t they’ll leave the nest and have no home

                                                                                            I wonder if you may have to send a few specimens to a professional to find out what kind of ant they are. There seem to be a lot of different suggestions to what they could be, and all of them look visually similar. I'd agree with a top comment I just saw, making them their own enclosure, but have an exit hole with a screen. The workers free roam, but the queen couldn't fit through. It wouldn't hurt to give it a shot.
