Let’s face it! The world hates fire ants. It is not hard to understand why seeing as they are a major domestic pest in many countries, as well as a very dangerous agricultural pest, like in the Unites States where they pose serious problems and affect human way of life. They even float on water forming huge rafts during floods like some aquatic, indestructible beast.

In this video, we take a closer look at my pet fire ant colony named “The Fire Nation” in their AC Hybrid Nest ant farm setup, learn where fire ants came from, find out why they are such a powerful and impacting force in any ecosystem, but more importantly why they are magnificent evolutionary survival machines, and why I personally love them. We delve into the miracle of ant life, and why I feel ants in general make interesting and amazing pets in the home. Hope you enjoy this week’s ant video!
