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.

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

I am going to add a new “Frequently Asked Questions” page on the next update. For now I have updated all my colony journals.  Thanks to everybody who sends me their questions about ants, I do enjoy answering them.  Feel free to email me if you have any ant questions.  You can also email me to tell me all about your ants if you wish, I enjoy hearing about how your colonies are getting on.

I have also updated my YouTube Channel with some more videos of my ants.

I have started a new Lasius niger colony with a queen captured from the 2017 mating flights.  I have called this one the Sheffs Colony.  I placed her in a test tube and left her on a shelf in my room.  I have also updated my other journals, and placed a new advertisement for a UK ant supplier, Ants R Us.

I have updated all four journals, including the appearance of winged ants in the Goblin Colony, and new ant farms for the bhoeschod and Goblin colonies.
