My Pet Fire Ant Colony 1 Year Later (Road to 4 Million)

I raised my pet fire ants at the start of last year from just a single queen ant with eggs in a test tube. One year later, they inhabit a huge, beautiful setup and have gone through so much. This is an update on the Phoenix Empire one year since they first arrived on the channel. Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #PhoenixEmpire #RoadTo4Million
