Myrm's Ant Nest

Information about Ants

You are attempting to enter the Queen Ant's Royal Chamber

Welcome to Myrm’s Ant Nest, an educational site giving information about ants, dealing with species of ant native to the UK.

In September 2019, I revamped this website to improve it.  As a result, I removed some pages, files, and pictures or transferred them to a new page.

If you are reading this then you have tried to access a file or page that no longer exists or it may have been moved.  Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.

To go to the new home page please click on the button below.  This website has a wealth of information about ants including; Species of Ant, Life Cycle of Ants, and Ant Anatomy.  Also, What Ants Eat, Ant Nests, How to Keep Ants, and My Ant Colony Journals.

Thank you for visiting my site, I do hope you find the information about ants that you are looking for.  Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
