I can't believe we made another novel discovery in our newly bought ant forest! In this episode, we fortify our new forest/ant paradise for the native ants in my area, applying permaculture principles to build a food forest. While doing so we finally hear back from my myrmecologist & ant taxonomist friend Dr. General regarding a mystery ant we collected last week. Turns out it was a new and rare find! Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

  • He should search for a queen of the rare species and make a farm and release males and virgin queens into the wild to grow there populations And hopefully cause his land to have 1 or several wild colonies which you could study and make videos on.

  • I know i'm too late anyway and I sorta feel mean giving them su ch a cruel name after the black knights are such an epic colony but my first thought was simply black death XD (yeah I'm not creative thats why I usually shut up about this sorta question lol) i mean they DO have bumbs too (the blood sucking mites XD which I assume you might still address *likes to comment as the video goes along, as usual* also getting started on your farming is sooo exiting ..aaaaah!! I am glad you are on this track :P still..and I know I have said it before...but despite negative...I want to drop the warning again...please please be cautious with your purchases of land...I do hope that I will still be around in five years, but...yeah..just..please be sure to have enough safed up if things stop going wild...a lot of peopel tend to just spend tons of cash if they "suddenly get rich" and then end up poor when things change....

  • So I am late to this, however and I know this is hard to hear but I suggest trying to find the home colonies of the invasive ants (the black crazy ants and the fire ants especially.) Find the colonies, if you can find the super colony for the black crazy ants for instance, you can boil a massive pot of water when you are moved into the new AC Mansion. Take this boiling water to the nest and dump it down into the super colony of the black crazy ants or into the colony of fire ants. I know fire ant's have a method of protecting against floods but boiling water would burn many of them to death and may kill the queen too. It's the most eco friendly solution and I use it on invasive ants. For the super colony of black crazy ants I would suggest something like 5 gallons of boiled water and funnel directly into the colony. for the Fire ant's... actually same thing, 5 gallons, it will get the job done and scorched earth the entire colony without poisons or pesticides.

  • On one hand, I would like to diversify my backyard, on the other, it feels a bit like setting a trap for local songbirds, because we have a ton of cats in the neighborhood. (I live on the edge of a small town and traffic is low, so people, me included, just let their cats out. Where I live, we also have a native wild cat species that is near identical to our house cats, so they are part of the ecosystem) I already get questionable presents from my cat as is and I'm sure they wouldn't become less, were I to make my backyard more attractive to songbirds.

  • Nature preservation is my true love. Ants are kool n all, but in the end then theyre "only" a mirrorreflection of all the synergies that combined makes up the world. Theyre fun to watch, and even more so with an enthustiastic voiceover. This is one of my fav YT channels. But ants are dwarfed by the magic that springs from motherearth herself. TY so much for what youre doing. Nomatter what the motivation and priorities are, the total impact is all the sudden what matters most to me. Plz include a few updates from the safehaven each vid - if possible. If not, then ill still tug in and watch the ant colonies, and ill do it with a smile. Thx for the upload. Its awesome
