Thank you for visiting my website.  The intention of this website is to tell you about ants; what they do, their nests, the mating cycles of the flying ants, what they eat, what species there are, and even how to keep them as pets.  I have tried to keep the information contained on this site as clear and concise as possible so that it does not get confusing or boring.  I am aware that a lot of schools and young children use this site as a reference.

The site is generally about species found in the UK as they are the ones I have had most experience with, though I am more than happy to answer questions about non-UK ants.

If you have any questions about ants, or about this website, or you wish to have a more in depth discussion or information about ants then contact me by clicking the Contact Myrm tab on the left side of this page.  

Myrm's Ant Nest

24 January 2016, Sunday


I would like to say thank you to all those who visited my website and read my journals during 2015.  The site continues to be popular, which is nice. Thank you.


I have decided to once more allow people to email me direct to ask questions about ants, as I should not be travelling at all this year, other than a day or two here and there.  Therefore if you have any questions about ants please feel free to email them to me by selecting the “Contact Myrm” tab to the left of your screen.  You can, of course, also send me good or bad comments about my website, say what you’d like to see as a way of improvement to the site, any ideas you want to put forward or to tell me if there are any proplems with the site.


Here are a few of my videos of my ant colonies.  I am only just starting to learn how to do this so don’t expect Hollywood standard shows. At least not yet! >.<

Most can be viewed in HD if you select the option at the bottom of the clip.

It’s the weekend! Yay!  I haven’t updated my journals this time round as there’s so little to say due to their winter inactivity.  Sorry :-(


I just want to encourage you all to visit Dermy’s Bug Forum and You Tube Channel (see at the bottom of this page). I’d love to see his forum and YT channel getting more visitors, so please support him by doing so.   Thank you.


It won’t be long and the ants in the wild (and indeed my own colonies) will start waking up and getting to work.  I look forward to that.  


I also can’t wait for the brood in my ant colonies to start developing again as there are so much!  Population explosions for sure.

Welcome Dermy’s Bug Forum & YouTube Channel

Dermy, who I know from my interest in ants, runs his own Bug Forum in which he discusses all sorts of bugs and critters including ants, wasps, bees, dermestids, mealworms, spiders, reptiles and lots more.

He also has his own YouTube channel in which he puts up short, easy-to-watch clips of his bugs.  I love how he shows you that you can make critter homes out of simple, everyday household objects.

Please do visit his forum and YouTube Channel by clicking on the items to the right and support this awesome friend of mine.
