Greetings Ant Lovers,
This is a story of my young pet carpenter ants and their beautiful queen ant, who were in need of a new ant nest location. In today’s episode, I give the ants a brand new home suitable for an ant colony at their current stage, and watch the ants move the entire colony (brood included) into their new and improved home. The process and reaction of the ants were intriguing, at times hilarious, and all around gratifying to watch.
However, as I was filming the ants, I managed to capture something deeply concerning on camera. Though I’m still trying to research the problem and possible solution, I believe we have a crisis that endangers our beloved carpenter ant colony.
