    Hi guys. Hope you found this video of help! Just wanted to let you all know I've just launched a Patreon page! I’ve always been reluctant to make demands upon you guys. Very rarely do ask anyone to like or share my content. Which begs the question, “why start a Patreon page?” Well, what changed my mind was the realisation that, without the support of donations, pursuing my dream of producing Ants Australia videos full-time, simply can’t be done. Any contribution vastly exceeds individual ad revenue here on IDreporter. So if you enjoy my content, and want to see more, please consider chipping in. I’d like to thank you all for your overwhelming support throughout the years. Whether that be through your donations, inspiring words, or just your silent attention :)

    Hey Jordan, I have a question about the large Vivarium(Looks amazing by the way), For the substrate is it ok to use some kind Tropical Vivarium Mix, Such as ABG.

    Does the colony continue to grow? What if you don’t have enough space for them?

    Helena Dawson if they continue growing, yes.

    PokeTin so you constantly have to increase the container size?

    Helena Dawson the colony should grow as normal. If they run out of space, you can move them into a larger container.

    My ants have walled themselves in a test tube! I placed the tube in a small formicarium with some sand and few rocks and sneaky bastards have used the sand to build a 5mm wall in the tube. What's that all about?

    Do not add mint plants!!!! Aswell as cinomon because Ants will try to escape and if they cant they will kill them self because they cant stand strong scents

    My 5yo ASD son today became very interested in ANTS after being bitten by a young "Jumping Jack" ant during his playtime at our local park. On his return home he excitedly started talking about ants to his father that my darling hubby begged me to try and change ours sons obsession. I instead embraced my lil mans obsession because I wanted him to have the same love for animals, insects and reptiles that my father gave me. So after our quick google search we happened upon your IDreporter channel and within hours watched several of your videos my son piped up and asked if we can make our own ant colony. So tomorrow we will be starting our new science project for his Homeschooling class!!

    I have just started watching ants on IDreporter. However, they always amazed me as long as they stayed out of my house. I would try to redirect them. But about 20 years ago I hated them and killed them out. Oh Yes Im sorry. :'( They are very awesome creatures and I don't try to kill them now. They haven't been back to my house. I do have many colonies ourside. I run across them when planting my herbs. I have to say I want to have my 60 gallon aquarium set up now and start a colonie of them after I have spent 4 whole days doing nothing but watching ants on IDreporter. I want to watch my own. I want to video them for my grandchildten. Im sure they would love to watch. I love your big aquarium place, so beautifully done. I raise worms for my garden. Some are like snakes they are so big. I just wonder if the ants would eat them? Im in Western Ky and I don't know the names of ants. I do wish some one could help me identify them. So I just joined ypur channel today Aug/ 07/2019

    OMG those peppermint plants do indeed look adorable! They fit so perfectly in with the environment! Thanks so much for making this video, I am so inspired and I have been for almost a year now! I am not keeping ants because I can’t find a dang queen! I’ve been looking and looking but can’t seem to find anything? It’s Jun 28 and I don’t know if I am too late or what. I just hope that I can find one this year!

    Ironic that you describe green headed ants as pretty, considering Rhytidoponera means ugly wrinkled face (or something like that).
