Come join our new AC SENATE now (new perks/channel voting powers):
Fire ants vs. Cockroaches: This week, I decided to construct a self-feeding system that allowed a colony of young cockroaches to safely survive and breed, while also providing my pet fire ant colony (the Phoenix Empire) with a perpetuating food source. Come check out the Shelfordella Temple Grounds, the newest addition to the Phoenix Empire's ant farm setup, The City of Ashes, and watch what happens when I put this new self-feeding system to work. In the end, I ask you to vote on whether or not Shelfordella should remain a permanent installment to the City of Ashes. Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #Cockroaches

Ya but make the roach house bigger so you can feed the tarantulas and also make it timed. Love the video by the way

“Watching them walk over past meals like this intimidates me greatly” *me holding a bucket of water* Intimidate huh? edit: I don’t mean this in any negative or harmful way, I think his little ant colony is pretty freaking cool
TheCasualJackass Před 10 dny
Seems ethical enough to me. You'll still probably need to feed the roaches and make sure there's enough to feed the ants.

3:20 Mmh. If I were an insect and must hide from an ant colony? I wouldn't hide but just be like this in my mind: *All teammates are down! You're the only one standing!* Me: Time to reap-elle all the fire away.

Nature is a perfect system. All death leads to more life and all life must eventually die. Attaching emotion to anything is where humanity goes wrong and upsets the system.

The only issue i see is that once the roaches land in ‘Hells Kitchen’ there is no escape. In nature, the roaches may not be trapped like that and have an actual chance to escape being killed
