Come join our new AC SENATE now (new perks/channel voting powers):
I need your help! My massive pet fire ant colony (the 'Phoenix Empire') is growing at such a rapid rate now and I have to decide what our next step will be. Today I show you how big the ant colony is now, what they're current housing is, and what our options are for the fate of our beloved fire ants. Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

AC Family, thanks for watching and helping me out! As mentioned in this video, please look for my hearted posts in the comments and *LIKE* the option of your choice to leave your vote! You can vote for more than one option, and you can also give feedback under the post! I can't wait to see/read your thoughts! Let's give the Phoenix Empire the best life! Ant love forever! EDIT: Apparently, the three posts to vote are being buried! I'm still jaded that CSposts removed the voting function in the videos. It makes things so hard. I may try #hashtags next time and use an outside app to count the votes. Sorry about this AC Family!

Okay I don't like roaches and dead ones are even worse but while I didn't like it I have an oc who had three hissing cockroaches as pets when growing up and would be devastated at the loss of a beautiful creature, but know it's for the good of taking care of the colony, specially one as large as the fire ants

Killing it by cutting it doesn’t really work some times, it is still alive even after that. The best way to kill it is to take something hard and smash it’s head.

How is being killed by the ants worse than being partially eviscerated with scissors and then being killed by the ants? If cockroaches do feel pain (which is hotly debated among entomologists, including myself), those "freshly killed" roaches still have fully functioning ganglia (mini brains along their spine and the reason roaches can live without a head for weeks).

Ants constantly bite you or pinch you over time cauing devastating pain whilst still being alive so if ants canada didnt use scissors it would be alive and moving whilst 100 of thousands of ants eat it alive and when it dies it will have to feel the pain so better of do it antscanadas way

I have a suggestion! Certain species of lizards feast on ants as their only food, including Thorny devils and Texas horned lizards. Perhaps introducing one or two if these lizards could solve your population problems, though some changes would need to be made to their paludarium. Hope this helps you out! ;D

In the new setup you should drill a hole in the bottom of the tank and attach the camber they are in into the ground of the tank. Then you could see where they live and not lose them in the dirt.

I feel the live feedings are way more ethical than you killing them yourself. Watching them be slaughtered by you and scissors is so much harder since you see their guts sprawl out while they continue to move. The neurotoxin is far more ethical since they will not feel the pain of death compared to metal scissors splitting their bodies in half and spilling their guts. It also provides far more entertainment and nature is far more fascinating to watch. Also, a roach can live up to 3 days with a severed head so when you kill them and drop them it's more so just dropping amputated live roaches to their deaths rather than having simple curiosity kill the roaches through natural fire ant means.
ThatGuyThai Před měsícem
@Grand Dawggy you would still be able to survive without a head 3 days before death. You'd still feel it if you were a roach. A toxin that neutralizes you in a naturalistic death is far more merciful than getting amputated and dropped in still writhing in pain.

You probably won’t like this idea but have you heard of nutritious of ants and have you heard the edible and you can eat the rude I hate this idea but if your aunts overgrown don’t just waste them and crush them or stop or start doing light feeding with scorpions if I have a big enough ant farm they can take on the live scorpions I will feed them that if they get too big

I think you should connect them together so they can go when they are ready and it will split up the colony into 2 districts so they wil be good for defending if pharoah ants or other attackers come and they will be easier to keep an eye on plus queens will be split up and breeding can be more organized
