This sleeping ant was left behind by its colony and its reaction when it woke up was hilarious! This is a story of my young pet carpenter ants and their beautiful queen ant, who were in need of a new ant nest location. I gave the ants a brand new home suitable for an ant colony at their current stage, and watched the ants move the entire colony (brood included) into their new and improved home. The process and reaction of the ants were intriguing, hilarious, and all around gratifying to watch. Hope you enjoy this week's video! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

  • So I just googled how long a queen ant usually lives. Google said about 10 to 15 years which is amazing to me. Then I asked Google what happens to the colony after the queen ant dies and it told me that the colony will eventually die off because there will not be a queen put in her place and no new members will be added. My question to you is what happens to your colonies after the queen dies? So say you've had some of these colonies for 10 to 15 years, the Queen dies. is there any way you can save the colony? Can you intervene and introduce a new Queen? And if so would the colony accept her as their new queen or would they sense an intruder and you know, dispose of her? Would the queen even accept the colony that she's introduced to? I have so many questions about this. I just know you put a lot of time and effort into your colonies and you absolutely love them as do your followers. It's just heartbreaking to think, having these colonies for so long that they would eventually just fade away after the queen passes on. I'm pretty sure I know the answer to my own questions I just want to hear it from someone who knows. You know, just in case I'm wrong.
