Here is a selection of the videos of my ant colony found on my YouTube channel.  You can find the channel by either clicking on the YouTube button to the right, or by clicking any of the videos below.

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.  

Thank you.

Lots of activity and egg-laying in all my colonies over the past few weeks.

Current colony journals updated. See the Myrm’s Pet Ants page by clicking on the tab to the left of your screen.

Feel free to email me with your ant questions or experiences with ants.  

Also please consider following me on Twitter where I intend to give regular mini-updates between journal updates.  I have had it for some time but have never really used it. 2019, and I am determined to make it grow this year, so please consider following me, which will encourage me.  Thank you.

I also have a YouTube channel for this website, showing my amateur attempts at macro-filming my ants.  Oh, and you’ll never see me begging for money via Patreon like many YouTubers seem to do these days.


Send me an email and I will try to answer your question.  I aim to reply ASAP.
