ANGEL OF DEATH: Why I Sent a Creature to Kill My Ants

    I had to send in an Angel of Death to kill my pet ants. My supercolony of yellow crazy ants, called the Golden Empire, have been gravely infected by parasitic blood-sucking #mites, and our last hope to save them lay in the results of a critical #experiment where we tested to see if predatory Hypoaspis mites, harvested from one of our #RhinoBeetles, would eat the parasitic ant mites. When the results of the experiment came in this week, I was left with no choice but to take drastic action.

    Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

                              Why save just one queen? Wouldn't it be possible to find the others? Even if they were infected, you could prioritize their care with the test batch of hospis mites.
