Fire Ants vs. Maggots: What happens when a swarm of seething maggots take over a turkey carcass that a colony of fire ants (The Fire Nation) have been working on? Well, this is truly one of the grossest videos I've ever had to film on this channel, and as a scoleciphobe (fear of worms), there were points of screaming! But in the end, it made for a very interesting and educational video about one of the most important processes of nature. Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #Maggots #Halloween

My repulsion for maggots comes from a dead gopher and garbage can. I'm sure everyone can fill in the rest. Because the maggots sure did. 🤯😱

Congratulations on your Streamy nomination! I realize this is an older video, but I’m a fairly new subscriber and am slowly watching your archive of videos. I really love your channel. I can tell you really have a passion for ants and really have a very educational channel. I also really enjoy your narration. I think you are very pleasant to listen to speak, which adds so much to the enjoyment of the videos as well. I have learned so much since watching your videos! Keep up the great work. I look forward to watching them all.

Get a bunch of more delicious meals to distract the fire ants and take the turkey out gather as much ants as possible to reunite with the colony and the ones that remain will be replaced with baby ants from the queen

People actually have an instinctual fear of snakes and spiders. You can show pictures of almost any animal to a newborn baby without getting a reaction, but newborns really don't like it when you show them pictures of snakes and spiders.

Usually we find magots in rotten food, so I think that's the main reason for the repulsion.
