    My pet carpenter ants have disappeared for over six months and it has started to worry me. So this week, I actually went in and attempted to dig them out from beneath their resident rock in their ant terrarium called the Grove. I wanted to move them into a more effective ant farm setup where we could actually see the ants. What I discovered shocked me... twice! Hope you enjoy this week's unpredictable episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    The plants appearing in this episode are Peperomia pellucida (the plant with profuse pods) and Pilea microphylla (the attractive shrub).

                              You see at first his videos were very interesting and I could watch all 25 minutes but now I find myself skipping through every minute because he constantly repeats himself every 5 minutes and prolonging the entire video to show what is stated in his tittles ....very frustrating

                                                                                  its not a science channel anymore, its a moneymaking channel, but well.. we all need to make money, right? :) have a nice day and antlove forever !

They most likely took everything from the nest and covered up the old tunnels like most ants do? I’m trying to have high hopes...😕
