My new fire ant colony, now officially named the Phoenix Empire, is super cute and growing steadily, but what they really want and need at this stage is protein. Today we offer my fire ants their very first mealworm meal, and even get to observe how they react to a live mealworm. Their reaction may surprise you! Hope you enjoy this week's ant episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #Mealworm #Feeding

What is the difference between brood and the eggs, larvae, and pupae? Sorry if thats a dumb question, but I'm curious. I've watched other videos and it seems the brood is kept everywhere, but eggs, larvae, and pupae are all sorted out later on? So I'm not sure what the difference is.

Memoria Před měsícem
funny story! i grew up petrified of insects. if i saw a bee id either freeze and tense or panic and turn/run away. same with spiders and other insects. ants have always been.. okay? i cant handle the thought of one crawling on my skin, but i do marvel in seeing the systems presented by insects. its always interesting to learn of something new. so although i will never fully love ants, i 100% am cheering these dudes on!

The Phoenix Empire is the best name because phoenixes burst into flames when they grow old, and get reborn as chicks from their ashes. I think you can see where I'm going with this. The Phoenix Empire is basically the Fire Nation being reborn as a newborn chick!

Interesting they have 4 connecting tubes. Almost as if they're daring you to connect 4 different species at once and leave a single food source to see them fight over it.
