FIRE ANTS REACT TO THEIR NEW ANT FARM | Their First Time Digging Tunnels

  • My fire ants are getting their first ant farm! My 12 week old pet fire ant colony, named the Phoenix Empire, is so large now, it was finally time for them to move into a proper ant farm (an AC Ant Tower), where they could satisfy their natural urge to dig and create tunnels. I will miss seeing the queen fire ant, but inside I knew we were doing the right thing by giving them a better, more natural ant nest. Hope you enjoy this week's episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
