A Deadly OUTBREAK Is Spreading Within My Ant Colony
A deadly outbreak is spreading in my ant farm, and I don't know what to do. My yellow crazy ant colony, named the 'Golden Empire', has just moved into their brand new terrarium (the 'Crystal Catacombs') but as I was observing them living their lives in their new territories, I noticed signs of a deadly pathogen, a pathogen they've actually dealt with before. I'll need your help, ant lovers! We can solve this crisis together, as we have in the past. Let's hope our ants recover from this! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    Greetings Ant Lovers/AC Family, I am just so sad and don't know what to do. 😭😭😭

    Why not collect a whole bunch of hypoaspis mites and put them in a test tube with honey water (so you know they’ll come in contact the ants) and put the test tube in the terrarium, maybe close to a mound entrance. That and feeding infected ants to the fish, while feeding more to boost population, should do the trick, wouldn’t you think?

    This is the first (of what I guess to be many) videos of this channel I have seen and my first impression is a renewed appreciation for how small insects are because the close ups were somewhat terrifying. I'm anthralled already ;)

    wow its like the golden empire has been through sooo much.... :(


    Go online and BUY some predatory mites. (it doesn't mean they attack the ants it ACTUALLY means that its the kind of mite that eats other mites so don't worry google it to find confirmation if you want to see proof)

    Can you just add the predatory mites to the enclosure? We do it with tarantulas, however I would not assume it would work the same. They can now be purchased on Amazon.com. so you know.

    If it's early enough I would agree you should try to gather the infected ants and feed them to your fish. An average life span of a worker in the wild is a week right? It's for the good of the colony.

    🤔 I think you should look for Hypoaspis mites online if you can, I googled it and it looks like there’s sellers out there. I’d also consider removing heavily infected ants and feeding them to the fish.

    I am thinking a mix of the population boost to give a better chance till the beetles are in season for the good mites to work as a clean up crew.
