ok.... every summer ants build a massive colony in my front garden, down in a drain thingy . its always big, you can usualy see big swarms of them in the driveway. but this summer its massive! there are alot more than usual. so i did a wee experiment. i got a cricket went over to the ants nest and stamped on the ground next to it. 1000's rushed out and i droped the cricket on them. they swarmed all over it and in about ten seconds it was completely covered. after it was dead they took it into the nest. it was awsome.

It'd be pretty incredible if you could talk to them in ant language.

I'd go outside, lay down, and say... "carry me to work... While I sleep.."

Would you eat your boss?

You might kill him, but would you actually EAT him?

Consume his flesh?!

HIS EYES?!

Besides, I wouldn't pay them. What the hell do you pay an ant with? Apart from food but they can get that easy enough.

I'd introduce a currency into their society and watch as greed and corruption destroyed their society.

But then i'd have to walk to work.

But really I don't think they'd eat you if you carried insecticide with you.

I've seen swarms of flying ants in Mexico.
Don't think you can have that many queens/kings.

Birds went crazy eating them.

The flying swarms are reproductives coming out to form new colonies. Termites do something similar.

Lycan, I believe you're thinking of jack-jumper ants.

because the females would have to become queens and build there own colony, and the males would find them and wel ... hump them that makes them kings really doesnt it, have you seen the footage where they try to get to the queen and she accepts him but hes too big so the worker ants chew his wings off so he can fit down the burrow lol the wings dont get wasted btw they get taken in for food lmao

there not drones though, cuz a ant drone would be one of the workers, and male ants have wings as do the queens before finding a suitable are to colonize, im sure the males with the wings are bred specialy, and im sure they are fed up more than a worker, technically there isnt a queen all she is there for is to reproduce, she has no power at all lol
