    A war has been waged against one of the most notorious pest ants in the entire world: pharaoh ants! Today we embark on a mission to eliminate a colony of pharaoh ants that have broken into my home and into our ant farm terrarium, where they endanger our pet ants, the Titans (Marauder ants, Carebara diversa). Watch how I deal with the pests in a way that is eco-friendly and pesticide-free.

    What we discover about pharaoh ants in this video will blow your mind, and just a hint: the ending will surprise you! Enjoy!

    Special thanks to Alex Wild of http://www.alexanderwild.com who allowed us to use his beautiful images of pharaoh ants. Be sure to visit his website to order prints of his nature photographs.

    When you your lizard dies so you convert it into an ant terrarium but the ants the were planned to move in there are killed by ants that live outside of a setup so you decide to move another colony in but they disappear for an extensive period of time so you move another colony in but they escape so you have to take them out, but then the ants that disappeared return but also a snake that eats ant babies is in the tank and it reproduces asexually so you have to find it and take it out, hoping to get revenge on the ants that killed the original colony that was going to move in but the snake dies, so you just go on and try and see if the ants that are in the terrarium are doing well and you discover that secretly a huge amount of them are living underground but then a savage supercolony breaks in and takes in all the food so you put death chalk around the terrarium before trapping and enslaving the invaders.

                                        I find it funny how all your ants want to escape the terrariums but all the wild ants want to move in to the terrariums.

                                          I believe you said you live in the Philipenes even though the channel is called Ants Canada. Any problem there with Argentine ants? I'm in southern California and they're a dime a dozen here. Lots of queens and very long trails as well. Have eradicated all native species close enough to watered areas for them to survive.

A nomadic colony of pharaoh ants would probably do poorly against a fully established and dug-in colony of fire ants.
