Call me crazy, but I'm building an entire house because of my passion for ant keeping. Today I explain how it all started, how I went about finding land, designed the new room, explain the new Ant Room's features, and give you guys a tour of the construction to date. Hope you enjoy today's video! #AntFarms #AntRoom #NewAntiverse

I really find it very amazing to see how well you take nature into "artificial" surroundings and mixed habitats that you create.. 👌🏽👍🏽🙏🏽 My 7 year old son and I have agreed to go for Ant Queen hunt around Sping/Summer time.. Then we'll see how far it'll take us.. Who knows, maybe we can one day combine aquarium/terrarium.. 😅

  • why don't you try to make the tanks undesirable for the ants and move them to a smaller more lite enclosure so then you can empty out your tanks and move them easier

    angel cruzangel cruz4 dagar sedan
  • An idea for moving your bigger tanks is to devide them in segments somehow. maybe get all the big rocks out, put glass in segmented places, get the sand and eggs and ants out. otherwise i think you'll have to destroy the wall :)

  • i got a name THE ANT ABODE

  • You asked about ideas on how to move the large terrariums of ants. My thought is don't. Instead move the ants and other livestock but not the finished terrariums that do not fit in your elevator. I think it would be both cheaper and more interesting to us if you buy a few new glass boxes and develop new colonies in the new house. Save some space upstairs for the old ones when they are freed up later. I love to watch you create a new terrarium because you are so very good at it. Especially the fire ants should not move as is, because it is too dangerous, too costly and that permit thing. I do not know if you will be keeping the living space in the city or not, so I do not know your timing. Can you afford to allow your fire ant colony to die of old age? Will you be able to continue to film it if you do not move it? If you need to move out faster then you may want to move a part of the colony by arranging a flood and an escape box above the flood. Then use frogs or some other critters to kill off any stragglers, before removing the soil and plants, tipping it on the end and hauling it down in the elevator. I wonder how tough it is to get a new queens for the colonies in the big terrariums? I hope you will answer these questions in one of your upcoming videos about your move. Would you please make a playlist that sorts out all the videos you have made about finding your new home, creating it. and then moving so we can watch the whole saga more easily?

And maybe even a huge wall of an art farm where certain areas have magnetized viewing points as a telescope to view ants for kids to enjoy and learn

  • I know this is a month late but I think you may need to make your ant colonies move back into smaller enclosures so they don't get killed by careless movers going down 15 flights of stairs. The smaller more manageable containers can fit in the elevator and you can do a welcome home video for the ants when they get to move back into the enclosures once they are relocated in the new house.
