Here is a selection of the videos of my ant colony found on my YouTube channel.  You can find the channel by either clicking on the YouTube button to the right, or by clicking any of the videos below.

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.  

Thank you.

Wow!  6 months since my last update?  Man, I am getting awful at keeping this site and my journals up to date.  Sorry.  I need to make a New Years Resolution that I will make more updates more frequently.

Anyway, I just want to thank everybody who visits this website, especially the regulars, and to those who still email me with their questions, or just saying hi.  It really is appreciated.  I even had an email from somebody a few days ago who contacted me about 10 years ago, when he was 13, when he had asked me about keeping ants.  Now he’s 23 and wanted to say hi.  How nice that was.  

So, my ants are hibernating right now, or at least in a vastly reduced activity, so there will not be much in the way of updates on my journals until the Spring.

Feel free to email me with your ant questions or experiences with ants.  


Send me an email and I will try to answer your question.  I aim to reply ASAP.
