This is a very gruesome process, but it's something I need to do every day. Feeding my massive and ravenous fire ant colony involves a certain tolerance to insect guts, the realities of predation, and even the revolting aspects of breeding prey insects. Hope you enjoy this episode of how I feed my pet fire ants from breeding farm to table! Join the Great AC SENATE to get access to new perks/voting powers on this channel:

  • My siblings thinks it's weird that I feed wild ants. They just go about their day, not really caring as much about the ants as I do. They actually think ants are a nuisance, but I'd like to watch them up close. I would want fo have my own ant colony one day, but I guess I dont know how to properly take care of them.
