    Oh no! Another one of my ant colonies have gone missing in their setup. This week I venture deep into the St. Lucian Rain Forest to seek answers to my ant keeping problems. By trekking through the Caribbean jungle and exploring the ants and other creatures there, I acquire insights that help me become a better ant keeper and creator of worlds.

          But what actually caused the disappearance aside from Mother Nature's processes? Pillaging alien ants? Window escape hole? Sickness? What?

                            That fungus that uses live insects to survive is the creepiest, most awful thing ever, can you imagine dying like that? Thank science we’ve managed as humans to separate ourselves from the wild world to a degree....or two. Also, besides the fact that you’ve come up with your own reasons for keeping ant farms, I think regardless of the placement of ants, insects survive on instinct, if you set up a smaller venue for them to live, they continue to function the same wherever they are, Id think as long as you keep it as close to the natural world, they’ll be fine

                                                          those bumps are caused by gaul wasps.

Look at the antenae closley 3. Examine the little hairs sticking out of them 4. If the hairs are long and give the antenae a wide - like appearence, its a ♂, but if theyre short and barley visible its a ♀

                                                                  Explanation: ♀ use them to find blood sources and ♂ use them to find ♀ to mate
