Why are my fire ants partying? The answer will surprise you. I’ve discovered that it’s actually for their survival! My pet fire ant colony, the Phoenix Empire, has started to hold these massive fire ant rave parties. During these seemingly random ant raves, the fire ants would come boiling up to the surface and could be seen running in all directions, in every section of their ant farm setup. It was a behaviour that remained a mystery to me for many years, until I finally discovered the reason for these raves this week. Join me as we unravel the true nature of these massive fire ant raves and how they actually help fire ants survive in the wild!
