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.
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.

Just a quick note to express my sadness at a long time ant forum being closed down. Ant Hill World (AHW) run by husband and wife team Jen & Wood has sealed up its nest entrances. It had faithfully serving the anting community for ten years and was perhaps the longest running UK ant forum. I always thought I knew a lot about ants until I met Jen & Wood; they showed me I didn’t know half as much as I thought. Knowing them and being a member of AHW really boosted my knowledge on ants. I once met them both and they were very hospitable to me, even giving me some free ants. Though AHW had closed its doors temporarily in the past I am reliably informed that this time it is for good. It’s a shame as there was a lot of good information on there and some decent people. I wish Jen & Wood all the best.
For those who are looking for a new ant forum to join I am, quite naturally, going to suggest the forum I belong to World of Myrmecology (see the Links tab to the left), but there are other UK based ant forums, and, of course others further afield. I hope all AHW members find a new home where they will be happy, wherever that may be.
