    The Pharaoh ants are back and they've killed an entire colony in the Antiverse, my Ant Room. Sadly, this is not a happy episode. Pharaoh ants are one of the world's most hated and notorious invaders, wreaking destruction of all kinds in their paths. Tragically, today we say goodbye to one of our colonies, but stay tuned until the end because there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    You’ll probably never see this, but I just want to say, thank you for making this channel. Before I started watching your videos 2 years ago, I absolutely hated insects. I regret to say that I killed every single one I saw. One day, Youtube recommended me “My Fire Ants are Trying to Escape.” I clicked on it and wow did it change everything for me. I fell absolutely in love with ant keeping and everything you do. Your channel was and still is so inspiring and exciting and fun and crazy! It’s like a soap opera but with insects haha!

    So I ended up using the Ants GAN project and got my first queen. Fast forward two years, and I now have multiple colonies, and I have gained so much respect for insects. They are so intelligent, sometimes even more intelligent that we are. It’s crazy to think that, after watching your videos, I wonder if we are humans have anything to learn from these tiny creatures. Clearly so much!

    Anyway, TL:DR thank you for changing how I view insects, nature, and even humanity. Your channel is incredible and will forever be a part of my late teenage years! Keep up the amazing work ❤️❤️❤️ Ant Love Forever :)

      MY ZQUAD IZ GODZILLA’z unfortunately that’s just not true. I’m at university right now studying computer science and playing volleyball. I have many other aspects of life other than ant keeping. It’s just a small hobby. And use less emojis next time, it makes your argument seem more intelligent. Oh and you used “your” instead of “you’re” again.

            how I would have got rid of the pharaoh ants:

            Step1: Buy raid

            Step2: Move the terrarium outside

            Step3: Spray em a bunch so they can't return

                                    Although your question of the week may have been answered a long time ago, I know that Pharaoh ants behave like guerrilla warriors, moving their live nests from place to place, like a nomadic scourge, avoiding detection and defeating all extermination attempts.
