I finally managed to catch my fire ant queen laying eggs! The Ember Empress, the name given to my pet fire ant colony's queen has been an egg-laying machine these past few weeks, but it has proven quite challenging to catch her in the actual act of laying eggs. This week, however, I finally did! The process was stunning and magical to see! What a rare sight to witness! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #QueenAnt #PhoenixEmpire

That the queen does actually have a stinger and it extends out before contractions and flexing her abdomen forward and laying her egg.

Now I’m curious. How does an ant become the queen? Genetics? But if the queen gave birth to every ant in the colony, then when will another queen ant be born? Or will it never be born from another queen ant? ....

AIDAN GM Před měsícem
Antscanada, actually by what you said about the sizes of the fire ants, I ll correct you on that. The sizes of each fire ant worker caste is not based on food intake in its larval form. The nanitics are actually a type of minim worker that are part of the queen’s first generation of offspring. These primary minims are also known as nanites. Unlike the current fire ant minims the colony had now, these minims were as small if not slightly smaller than normal when the colony was small and lived a shorter lifespan than the current minims.
