I had to send in an Angel of Death to kill my pet ants. My supercolony of yellow crazy ants, called the Golden Empire, have been gravely infected by parasitic blood-sucking #mites, and our last hope to save them lay in the results of a critical #experiment where we tested to see if predatory Hypoaspis mites, harvested from one of our #RhinoBeetles, would eat the parasitic ant mites. When the results of the experiment came in this week, I was left with no choice but to take drastic action.
Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
