My new, young fire ant colony, the Phoenix Empire, is quickly growing in population now, but with a growing amount of brood, and with new adult fire ants appearing every day, social structure and rules are of utmost importance if the colony is to succeed. Check out some of the incredible rules the Phoenix Empire have established to ensure optimal living conditions and survival of the colony! Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever!

i noticed the ant colony near where i smoke seems to keep isopods until they get big (they only seem to attack full grown isopods). sometimes i even see the ants share some sweet foods i drop after most of the ants have filled their stomach(s). the species is known to farm aphids so i wonder if they know how to do a similar thing with garden isopods.
