Hello Ant Lovers,
Our new video this week explores social parasites, queen ants that start their colonies by parasitizing a host ant species. If you ever come across these types of queen ants during your nuptial flight hunts, we suggest you let them go as they may be hard to get started, or if you are up for the challenge you can attempt to introduce a host colony. Click here for the video.
PS – We now release videos every Monday so be sure to SUBSCRIBE to our ant channel so you never miss a single ant video! Special thank you as well to biologist and nature photographer Alex Wild of www.alexanderwild.com for the photography used in the video.
