There's an epic ant war happening in my yard, and I managed to film scenes of weaver ants and fire ants battling it out. It was all part of an important natural balance of power between the native ants and invasive ants in my yard. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

  • Don't have a name suggestion yet for these little critters. But what I want to know is, how can I get some WEAVER ANT colonies in my back yard in Fort Worth, Texas, where we have huge fire ant mounds all through the warm season? Someone should try to get the WEAVER ANTS to populate the southern U. S., where fire ants have taken over and countless people and animals have been stung; some have even died from being stung. Fire ant stings are terribly painful, so --- BRING ON THE WEAVER ANTS!!

  • I love your videos. I don't know much about ants, but I love watching them. I have a question. In your previous video, you mentioned that fire ants will go to war with any other colony, even if it's another fire ant colony. And then here, you mention a fire ant nuptial flight and such. That begs the question - if a fire ant from one colony did a nuptial flight and made a new colony nearby, would they still fight despite the queen of the new colony being from the old colony? Sorry if I got my terms wrong. Still learning :)
