There's a Massive ANT WAR Happening in My Backyard | 'The Battle for Antopia'

It's going down! The ants in the backyard of my new 'Ant House' are all engaged in an epic ant war over the territory, known as Antopia, and its resources, but who ends up winning this war will have an impact on the local ecosystem. The native ants of the area have long ruled these ancestral lands for millions of years, but I've discovered that today they defend their grounds from invasive ants, newcomers whose sole purpose is to seek, destroy, and conquer.
Join me as I map out the encampments of all the ant tribes from the two groups: Team Native Ants vs. Team Invasive Ants, stationed around the yard, to see if we should be concerned for the safety of all life in the area. Hope you guys enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #AntWars #Antopia #AntHouse

  • Thanks for watching, guys! Hope you remember to SUBSCRIBE to the channel and HIT LIKE if you enjoyed this episode! I'd appreciate it a lot... But guys, there's one thing: A lot of you are saying I should kill the fire ant colonies via boiling water... 😭 Ahhhh I'm torn. Should I? A part of me says it's cruel because we have always loved fire ants on this channel, but another part of me says it's for the greater good of Antopia! What should I do, guys. Pls help!

    • I think you should kill the invasive species, though boiling water would be too cruel. Maybe something that is not cruel? I don’t know.

  • Déjà vu (/ˌdeɪʒɑː ˈvuː, - ˈvjuː/ (About this soundlisten)[1][2] DAY-zhah-VOO, -⁠VEW; French: [deʒa vy]) is the feeling that one has lived through the present situation before.[3][4][5][6] This is a French phrase that translates literally as "already seen". Although some interpret déjà vu in a paranormal context,[7] mainstream scientific approaches reject the explanation of déjà vu as "precognition" or "prophecy".[3][4][5][6] It is an anomaly of memory whereby, despite the strong sense of recollection, the time, place, and practical context of the "previous" experience are uncertain or believed to be impossible.[8][9][10] Two types of déjà vu are recognized: the pathological déjà vu usually associated with epilepsy or that which, when unusually prolonged or frequent, or associated with other symptoms such as hallucinations, may be an indicator of neurological or psychiatric illness,[11] and the non-pathological type characteristic of healthy people, about two-thirds of whom have had déjà vu experiences.[12][13][14][15][16] People who travel often or frequently watch movies are more likely to experience déjà vu than others.[17] Furthermore, people also tend to experience déjà vu more in fragile conditions or under high pressure, and research shows that the experience of déjà vu also decreases with age.[18]

  • I’m no genius, but ants that are attacking a colony, then they have an advantage because the worker ants and the small amount of army ants stand no chance against attacking army ants that overwhelm their enemy, I am team native ants, but the invasive ants probably have more numbers and could have formed a super colony... just my shower thoughts 💭

  • Antscanada lied to me so I'll have to pay for shipping more than once. Over charging for shipping is how they make their money. Charged me $5.81 for something they paid 50 cents for. First class us mail under 1 pound look it up. Lied to me about what is included now I have a wide open ant farm till I let him rip me off again.

  • Man i dont know how else to say this but i really hope you have dealt with the invasive ants. Their lack of fault in the matter they still destroy ecosystems in the case of fire ants... animals.... well i cant fault you on not snuffing the other invasive species. Fire ants spread like wildfire as you well know and are heinously destructive to the insect kingdom. I live in oregon and on occasion visit the eastern high desert forests which used to be teaming with cicada frogs tarantula and scorpions and the areas i used to visit are now nearly entirely quiet even some birds have moved on. Point is they will spread beyond where they are further than you can deal with even going on the assumption they aren't a new addition to the location and haven't already had their flights. Those 2 drops in the ocean need to be evaporated. Wow.... im long winded
