    Watch what can happen when you break one of the basic golden rules of ant keeping. I attempted to mix two unrelated ant colonies together. This is usually not allowed in ant keeping because it inevitably leads to an ant war. In this video, I explain why I had thought it was a safe bet to attempt colony fusion between the Golden Empire (our yellow crazy ant colony) and a new 5 queen ant colony of the same species. Hope you enjoy this week's video!

                                                            I wonder if the golden empire being sick had something to do with the war. Maybe it was how newly introduced colonys attempt damage control by culling most of the sick? That would still be a cooperative joining of the colonies.
