Skeptical Ants Doubting the Colony "Rumors" (Hilarious Ant Story)

Před 10 měsíci

Something really funny happened this week. I believe my ants were showing signs of disbelief, when I placed a jar of honey into their set up. One ants discovered the honey but there must have been some mix up in the pheromonal messaging, because it took a while for the ants to believe there was a massive jar of honey waiting for them outside the nest. Watch and see for yourself. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #BlackCrazyAnts #Food #AntCommunication

love your work but i'm not exactly sure that acacia from "bonne maman" classifies as Canadian honey... try some grade A maple syrup if you want to pull that Canadian OG feeling onto us.

I like this because it shows that there’s more going on cognitively in each ant than one would think. They hear of new food, consider it, then decide they don’t actually believe that there is.

Do you think the reason why they were so doubting is that they are such a large established colony who isn't dependent on some jar of honey? Meaning do you think a smaller colony who is more desperate would "believe this rumor" quicker?

There is a red mite on one of the ants leg, you should keep an eye on that before it gets worse

Yay!! Dark Knights mini episode!!!! Love it!! I really enjoy your commentary and how you both teach and analyze the behavior. This look into ant gossip and rumors is super entertaining and demonstrative of both ant and human worlds. Well executed!!! Thank you for letting us know the ants stuck in honey were ok once everyone ate them free. Go @AntsCanada!! #DarkKnights #AntRumors #Honeytrap

AC, Please let us know if you are seeing these comments about the mites. They may not be harmful but they look alot like the mites that almost took out the golden empire and we are all just worried that it might be time for some more rhino beetles and Hypoaspis mites

Awesome videos. Random question. I'm looking at methods of rehoming a starter ant colony from a standard T shape ant farm into a modular system. My idea is to attach a tube from one nest to the other, cover the new home so its dark, then turn the T antfarm upside down so they fall onto the upside of the lid, then hopefully wait for them to move into their new home. Question is, is this a good idea and could I possibly bury the ants alive?

I stumbled across AntsCanada by chance and very happy i did. Never had a huge interest in Ants but always had a grudging respect for the way the community works together, but since watching a few videos here i have become an avid watcher of this channel and look forward to the weekend so i can sit down and enjoy the show..
