Five Fire Ant Colony Casting Session Part 1: Casts 1 & 2

  • Published: 01 October 2016
  • I thought it would be cool to do a few ant colonies at a time, and show the result even if they didn't turn out that great to highlight how difficult casting can ant colonies be. But I actually got really good results. At least three of them are some of the best I've ever done and one is the largest I've done so far.

    The place where I am standing at the beginning of the video is the exact location of the cast in my first video

    The second one didn't turn out that great. I used the remaining molten aluminum from the first cast because I didn't think it was going to take very much due to its small and washed out appearance. I was wrong and the result is very thin and fragile tunnel casts with a small solid portion deep in the ground.

    The first cast is cast #078:

    The second one is cast #079 and I haven't posted pictures of the finished cast to the website as of yet.

    Part 2 of the 5 cast session can be seen here:

                      I have so many questions.. why weren’t there any ants around the anthill? How/where did he get the water supply for the water jet in the area? Did he pour the cast into empty colonies?

                          I suppose those ants that weren’t in the colony when this happened are now cast-aways...

                              Like what region, because it’s ok to kill fire ants in non native places and I suggest u not kill them in their native range but whatever

                                    I absolutely love these. Bc I absolutely despise fire ants. I always say, " Satan in a bigamist and all his wives are queen fire ants." And all you prissy flakes that have never been attacked by these miniature monsters have no idea how bad it hurts to be swarmed by them.
