Saying Goodbye to My Fire Ant Queen | She Will Die Now

22 000 Weergaven 557K

It's a very sad day. I was truly looking forward to having a new fire ant colony this year from this newly caught queen ant with eggs. Unfortunately, it just wasn't meant to be. I'll have to say goodbye to her, and I explain in this video why and how I need to do it. However, there is hope and I will not give up. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

    the sex of an ant is determed by if the eggs were fertalized. if they are, they will be female ants. if not, male ants.

    The factor that determinates the sex of an ant is if the queen mates or not, if she could not mate the ants are boys, use less, but if the queen mates the ants are all female (workers, soldiers etc.)

    To respond to the question of the beginning, what determines the sex of the ant is either the egg is fertilised or not. If it is fertilised, worker female ants are born. If it's not male ants are born.

Came Back To Her Wings Gone And Tons Of Eggs, Which Shocked Me. What I Should Have Expected Happened. Yep, You Guessed It, They All Became Drones.
