    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 :)

                                        The pharaoh ants have exterminated colonies of really strong empires, and also have attack multiple ants colonies at the SAME TIME, that means that their numbers easily are more than all the colonies together, maybe as twice as them
                                        So they could invade all the ant room easily, basically KILL THOSE ANTS OF A BEACH
