Here are a few of my videos of my ant colonies. I am only just starting to learn how to do this so don’t expect Hollywood standard shows. At least not yet! >.<
Most can be viewed in HD if you select the option at the bottom of the clip.
Thank you for visiting my website. The intention of this website is to tell you about ants; what they do, their nests, the mating cycles of the flying ants, what they eat, what species there are, and even how to keep them as pets. I have tried to keep the information contained on this site as clear and concise as possible so that it does not get confusing or boring. I am aware that a lot of schools and young children use this site as a reference.
The site is generally about species found in the UK as they are the ones I have had most experience with, though I am more than happy to answer questions about non-UK ants.
If you have any questions about ants, or about this website, or you wish to have a more in depth discussion or information about ants then contact me by clicking the Contact Myrm tab on the left side of this page.
Today I took delivery of a new colony of ants - these ones being a small, just-got-started colony of Lasius emarginatus, consisting of 1 queen and 10 nanitic workers. I have to confess that I don’t know too much about these ants are than the fact that they look like a cross between my favourite ants, Lasius niger, and Formica rufa. They are the same size, shape and colour as the former, but with the distinct red thorax of the latter. I have called them, the bhoeschcod colony.
My Lasius niger 6 and Lasius umbratus colonies are doing well.
