I can't believe how intelligent ants are! My pet big-headed ant colony has discovered agriculture. Upon examining my ant colony's ant farm island one night, I was shocked to discover that the ants were secretly farming "ant cows", mealybugs drinking from the sap of the colony's tree and excreting a sweet bi-product called 'honeydew' which the ants loved to eat and were collecting! Watch how we make this amazing discovery!

  • I never knew that mealybugs were also a source of honeydew for ants. I've always herd (get it) of ants farming aphids, but never mealybugs. In fact this is the first I've heard of them. That being said literally all the info was new and fascinating to me. The millions of years of symbiosis, to the face that males and females take on such different forms.

  • You know its 2 in the morning when you randomly watch ant videos

  • The tap water could turn them gay, so watch out

  • We are farmers... dun dun dunn dun dun dun dunn

  • help! my ants discovered gun powder!

  • At 4:10 u can see one of the bugs shoot something out. Its on the left side plant

  • This is absolutely remarkable, no doubt about it. Several species of ants are known to perform this kind of animal husbandry, and a few species even cultivate fungi for consumption, so the ants' mastery over agriculture is undeniable. Calling it a product of "ant imagination" is...a little optimistic considering the intelligence of individual ants, but it's just as amazing to know it's the result of instincts honed over millions of years combined with an impressive degree of coordination unique to eusocial insects such as ants.

  • I WANT TO HAVE MY OWN COLONY

  • that wasn't rain, that was more like a flood...a spray bottle on mist would make more rainlike effect

  • The bobbleheads are nomads!!! All the more reason to be called the air nomads!!!!

  • AAAAAAAH IS ANYTHING REAL ANYMORE

  • I wonder if ants nicknamed cows human melee bugs

  • you said ant poop a lot

  • i find a big head ant or cen i say bobblehead XD

  • You have a entire ecosystem with this one

  • hey ant canada, a thought occured... have you ever thought of making, purchasing, or just aquiring 'clear' decorations? like for example rocks? so we could see inside what the nests look like? i doubt this is possible, but i thought id ask

  • the night shift collectors are having a blast with that background music HAHAHA

  • Real nice to have adds every five minutes I love your video but seriously

  • well many ants do that like using fungus or aphids

  • so ants farm honeydew!

  • Ive never even seen it until now

  • DOMINICAN AMBER WOOHOOO

  • 'Colony' really is the prefect word for an ant nest.

  • They’re not intelligent on their own. They need a lot of ants to build intelligence.

  • its so nice to always listen to ur conclusion at the end😁

  • My ants to

  • 5 second rule

  • _"ant cows"_ Amazing.

  • Ant emergency pheromones are basically a panic fart

  • wow, this is f*cking amazing.

  • CS-tv teach you more than school

  • Next Video: My Ants Cuts Bark And Makes Wood!

  • more like anticulture

  • Actually tap water is probably better mainly because bottled water isn’t considered a drink but as a food item and go through less purity tests and could potentially be worse than tap. Just letting you know

  • What happened to the babies of romeo and juliet

  • "Aren't they just cute AC Family?" *Sees dead cockroach skin*

  • i just found this channel, and this was the 1st video i watched and iam like really high, you justhave a new fan bro! New subscribe this is just awesome!!!

  • I would love love love it if you could look into possibly getting your hands on some Exploding Ants.

  • What if we’re ant to an even bigger god!?

  • ... an ant farm within an ant farm

  • ooh piece of candy

  • Planet of the ants

  • You should put water into the bottoms of the floating islands.

  • *Jesus christ they're evolving*

  • He sounds like Grover from the Percy Jackson Live Action.

  • ❤️

  • What if earth is just someone's 'Human Farm' and they're watching us move around and build

  • "Fresh Nurishing Ant Poop" Killed Me XD

  • Either you transfer the colony in order to work on the tree seasonally or the tree will die... bonsai involves root pruning in order to keep the tree healthy... I love the idea but it seems you will have hurdles to overcome with this set up... of course this will happen over a stretch of time anywhere from months to years.

  • YOU GOT TROLLED!!! Read More

  • They are evolving !

  • Reproduction rate of mearly bugs? Too fast

  • Also, if you grow beans, ants will take care of the plant for you and even give you more yields, i'm getting way too many bean this summer thanks to wild ants. I'm using beans to drag them away from my succulent garden, so i got less mearly bugs

  • I hate those mearly bugs :(

  • NAME THE COLONY OF MEILLY BUGS THE TREE OF WISDOM KEEPERS

  • Isn't this more like animal husbandry, or bugs husbandry in this case, I suppose. :D

  • The Next One Is My Ants Discovered Farming!

  • Could the mealybugs squirt out the honeydew like that to attract the ants initially?

  • 3:35 they are kinda like a mob muscle crew that you pay to be protected lol

  • At 4:08 whats that white thing on the left that looked like it spat something out?

  • 3:48 - This makes me wonder if there are any ants that think milking mealybugs for honeydew is animal cruelty lmao

  • This is only the second video I've watched of yours. (I don't even know how I got here, but it's interesting enough for me to keep clicking on videos) I'm surprised you didn't mist the water to simulate rain a bit more, but I guess it would take a long time then, plus as long as they get water, they can obviously take care of themselves with suddenly being "drowned" lmao.

  • Great video, but keeping saying that "AC family" like that seems so artificial and really turns me off.

  • This is absolutely fascinating. I never knew ants were so intelligent.

  • Congratulations

  • How do the ants not crawl out of the open pot? Is there something holding them back?

  • This guy should have a Nat Geographic channel.

  • AC = Air Conditioner Therefore You are fake news.

  • *Cringes* oh god

  • Watch out, not before long they''ll start to build skyscrapers!

  • Name them the Air Nomads!

  • Me:i don't need this i don't need this I need this!!!!! more about bubble head ant pls😃

  • Greatstuff

  • I hate aphids...they are ruining my basil plant...

  • next they'd be doing machinery.

  • "I can't help but think we're celestial beings-" UNSUBSCRIBED

  • i've been wathing this channel for the past few months and i just relieze that Mikey Bustos own this channel😂😂😂

  • i dont understand how they werent called the Thunderants. bobbles is cute too, hi lil bobblies

  • Why does youtube recommend these ant vids xD

  • Why can't I reply to comments?

  • Awesome message in the end

  • You should get Name ideas for the Ant Cows Mine would be the Dewds

  • Anyone remember the music playing at 16:00 and ends at 16:50 ??? All I know is that it's part of the Alien Covenant Soundtrack, or so I think.

  • What will u do if you any of ur farms spill all over the floor.

  • I have an idea, could you try to teach your ants, the bobble heads to "Farm Farm", Like us? Please and thank you! I just think it would be cool to see ants farming wheat that's bigger than them.

  • So we wasn't the first civ to discover agriculture? :(

  • on the leaf on the left, I don't think anyone has pointed this out yet but, what is that? does anyone know? it looks sorta like a slug. 5:11(Edit) on closer inspection it seems there is more than one.

  • Don’t leaf cutter ants do that too?

  • iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  • Shoulda named them Rick & Morty fans

  • OMG
