My new fire ant colony, now officially named the Phoenix Empire, is super cute and growing steadily, but what they really want and need at this stage is protein. Today we offer my fire ants their very first mealworm meal, and even get to observe how they react to a live mealworm. Their reaction may surprise you! Hope you enjoy this week's ant episode! Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #FireAnts #Mealworm #Feeding

Maybe new fire ant colonies are gatherers/scavengers rather than hunters when they are just starting out. Trying to kill a creature when there are only a few dozen workers would be suicide for the colony. Their self-preservation instinct will disappear once they build their numbers.

if you ever need a crap load of fire ants again, just take a trip to Florida. We have tons of those invasive ants.

Wow, so fasinating to see the very start of a new colony in such minuscule details. Truly impressive what you have managed to capture on film. Knowing the colony are experiencing different events for the very first time, it makes me wonder if the information gained along with the memories and knowledge of how to (or how not to) react is passed down to younger siblings as the colony grows. I'm so looking forward to see the progress of the Phoenix Empire over time!

Ac question of the week: Ant colonies need protein because protein both helps the brood develop and the Queen lay eggs. I think.

Fun fact... humans also create meconium. Much like the little lumps of baby ant, meconium develops while a human baby is in the womb. While the ants make little nuggets, humans first bowel movements is sticky and tar-like and is a really gross green.

Oh I cannot wait to start my own colony. I'm hoping it will get my little brother into it as well. Luckily fire ants are native to my area. I'm gonna watch all your videos and learn everything I can. I didnt even know stuff like this existed till I found your channel. So looking forward to see how big and awesome Phoenix Nation gets.
