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.

I have updated my current 5 colony journals as they have started to emerge from hibernation.  

Click on the Myrm’s Pet Ants tab to the left to read them.

Yes, I am still alive >.<   My ants are hibernating at the moment, as are those outside, and so I haven’t had much to do with ants over the past few months. They should be waking up soon though, probably within the next 3-4 weeks.

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

On Saturday, I just happened to glance at the test tube housing this new queen, and thought I saw some movement behind her.  On further investigation I was excited to see that her first worker has emerged.  Journal Updated.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZ9441HYz6c
