STARTING A NEW ANT COLONY | Birth of the Carpenter Ants

Birth of the CARPENTER ANTS: After the beautiful rise to glory of my fire ant colony, the Phoenix Empire, I sought out a brand new starting carpenter ant colony to begin a new story of ant wonder. In this episode we meet our young carpenter ant queen and her brood, and have a look at all the unique jobs already taking place within the colony's test tube setup. The footage captured in this video is truly cute, eye-opening, and magical all at once. Hope you enjoy the humble beginnings of an ant colony, as we welcome them to our growing Antiverse. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution. #CarpenterAnts​ #QueenAnt​ #AntColony
