Ant-Man and the Wasp CHALLENGE with Paul Rudd & Connie


okay got 30 seconds you’ll get three
more laps in you may be watching this wondering what
is happening here why is Connie on a child’s bike why are you on a
penny-farthing well let me start from the beginning my good friend Connie
kindly invited me on a trip to Disneyland Paris and to be honest we did
not really know what to expect as you guys know the new Marvel movie ant-man
and the wasp is coming to Europe in a couple of weeks so on the Saturday
Connie and I were told we were going to be doing a series of tasks in the run-up
to the premiere in the evening as you know from the first film ant-man has the
ability to shrink down to the size of an ant and grow to the size of a building
65 feet to be precise Connie and I had to complete three tasks around this idea
however we weren’t the only team put to the test there were lots of other groups
people representing different parts of Europe like an Italy team a Germany team
France team all challenged to the same tasks as corny and I know we had to
represent UK and do our best to win the overall objective over the day being to
locate Ant Man aka tic-tac challenge number one the first task Connie had to
stand on a big hill with a speakerphone overseeing a giant jigsaw puzzle can you
hear me Connie had a teeny tiny and I mean tiny photo over the puzzle that I
had to complete while she shouted instructions at me from the top of the
hill we only had three minutes to complete the puzzle and the team that
got the most pieces in place won the challenge okay it’s like a little bit of
blue with some red in the top corner all along the bottom is the text it says
Atman of the woods yellow text on the far side yeah perfect
that goes in the middle that is the other side of the board yeah
that was actually a lot harder than it looked and although we were only the
second out of like seven teams to try the challenge we came in third place
which i think is pretty good we were winning but I think Italy beat us I
think it was a stressful task okay definitely harder than it looks
challenge number two each team had to race around a track one on a
penny-farthing one on a child’s bicycle and whoever did the most laps one
bearing in mind I have never even attempted to ride a penny-farthing and
Connie broke her leg last year so sometimes it hurts a little bit um as we
were watching people clamber upon the penny farthing I was thinking I am NOT
going to be able to balance on this thing yeah so we weren’t the most
excited about this challenge but nevertheless we gave it our best shot
and I think we smashed it sort of two minutes on the clock
three and two you want that yes clearly I was really good at that
I’m just happy I did about to be alive and this quail third Avenue asset at
this point it’s just the taking part that counts yeah I think we got about
eight laps between us it’s fair to say we didn’t win that challenge challenge
number three for the third and final challenge each pair teamed up to take on
ant-man and the wasps themselves aka Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly I think
Paul and Evangeline were just as confused as we are by this whole
situation Connie and I were against Paul aka ant-man
and we had to see who could build the better card tower
Paul had itty-bitty playing cards and Connie and I had giant ones I’ll let you
be the judge of who on this task they put themselves in the line of fire I’m I’m equally horrible okay comes to
building flirty okay right I hold them and you put them
on okay nope never build these great you guys and then you hold these two guys are
doing I feel like guards is a group ever there’s too much competition in the
world do you walk which is what the film is about thank you maybe if this was
like a infinity war junket and then they’d be at odds with one another but
it’s not it’s not the superior film because you’re in it okay one day yeah

Characters In Ant-Man And The Wasp With More Meaning Than You Realized

Characters In Ant-Man And The Wasp With More Meaning Than You Realized


Everything’s personal in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The small-scale superhero movie is a light
and summery story with no real villains, just characters trying to get things done and get
home, sometimes at odds with each other. But while the Ant-Man sequel’s stakes may
be small, the characters themselves have long histories that stretch back decades, and we’re
not just talking about the two with their names in the title. There’s more going on with some of these supporting
characters than you may have noticed, and they may affect the future of the entire MCU. When it comes to Ant-Man and the Wasp, these
are the characters that deserve your extra attention. Cassie Lang Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie is Ant-Man and
the Wasp’s secret MVP. In one of the movie’s most adorable moments,
the 10-year-old makes it clear to her dad that she wants to be his superhero sidekick. It’s a suggestion that Scott brushes off,
at least, for now. In the comics, Cassie does get in on the superhero
game, working both on her own and with the Young Avengers under the names of Stature
and Stinger. Like her dad, she has size-changing abilities,
gaining the power to do so without the help of any technology through her lifetime exposure
to Pym particles. So why does Cassie’s comic book history matter
to the MCU? Well, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige
has openly discussed how the company is “planting seeds” for the Young Avengers’ potential arrival
in the movies, saying, “That’s why we wanted Cassie […] inspired
by her father.” You may see that inspiration pay off sooner
than you think, as Marvel has reportedly cast an older actress to play Cassie in the fourth
Avengers movie. Is this aspiring heroine about to get her
time in the spotlight? It certainly seems that way. Elihas Starr Elihas Starr only appears in flashback in
the Ant-Man sequel, being the bald man who gets blown up in a quantum experiment as part
of Ghost’s origin story. But while he may be a sympathetic figure in
the movie, his comic book namesake is anything but. Introduced in a 1962 issue of Tales to Astonish,
Elihas is a brainiac villain appropriately known as Egghead, a super genius who becomes
obsessed with defeating Ant-Man and the Avengers. You don’t really get any of that in the movie,
though. Instead, Elihas’ animosity toward Pym is transferred
to his daughter Ava, aka Ghost, who has a reflexive distaste for Pym due to what she
sees as his part in her parents’ deaths. That fatherly aspect to Egghead is entirely
an invention of the MCU; in the comics, Ava doesn’t exist. Speaking of which… Ghost Ghost, is one of the more mysterious characters
in Ant-Man and the Wasp. With no time for chit-chat, she’s got an understandable
focus on staying alive and finding a cure for her uncontrollable phasing condition before
it tears her apart. Motivated by survival, Ava’s the most sympathetic
villain the MCU has seen yet. By the time the credits roll and Ghost is
cured, Scott’s casually referring to Ava as the team’s “new Ghost friend”, making her
story feel less like a villain’s tale and more like a backdoor pilot for a whole new
hero. In MCU territory, they call that move “the
Bucky Barnes.” In the comics, Ghost is not named Ava, nor
is she a she. The comic book Ghost, a man whose real name
we never learn, was introduced as a villain in a 1987 issue of Iron Man. Eventually, the character joins the Thunderbolts,
a team of bad guys gone good. Since Ghost survives Ant-Man and the Wasp,
fans are chattering about the possibility of the anti-hero eventually joining a movie
version of the Thunderbolts. While we don’t know for sure if that’s happening,
some of the pieces are in place. In the comics, the team was originally led
by Baron Zemo, a character who appeared in – and survived – Captain America: Civil War. Jimmy Woo Would you believe that FBI Special Agent James
“Jimmy” Woo is the Ant-Man and the Wasp character with the longest comic book history? With the character first introduced in 1956,
it might also explain why he’s such an unabashed square. Woo is such an old-fashioned character that
he predates Marvel Comics as a company, first appearing in an Atlas Comics series about
a Chinese supervillain named “The Yellow Claw.” A name which aged very poorly! “Hey! It’s complicated.” “It is?” “It’s complicated.” When Atlas turned into Marvel, Woo eventually
ended up repackaged as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. But Marvel never forgot his Atlas Comics roots,
eventually making him the center of a new team called the Agents of Atlas in 2006, a
squad composed of retro heroes from the ’40s and ’50s. Woo’s quaint style in Ant-Man and the Wasp
seems like a reference to his origins in another era. Being a stickler for the rules makes him a
natural heel in a world where Scott Lang – technically a criminal! – can be among the ranks of the
world’s mightiest heroes. Whale Boat Captain Daniel Gooobler The whale boat captain played by comedian
Tim Heidecker is not a comic book character, but rather a manifestation of a real-life
inside joke. It all goes back to the satirical movie review
series On Cinema at the Cinema, starring Heidecker and comedian Gregg Turkington – a show on
which Ant-Man director Peyton Reed once appeared. Ever since Turkington cameoed in the first
Ant-Man as Scott’s Baskin-Robbins manager, the two co-hosts have been locked in a rivalry
over which of them can appear in more Marvel movies – a competition Tim tied in 2015 by
appearing in Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot. “I completely understand why you would want
to be involved in it, why you would pay the $15,000 to cameo in the movie.” “No. No.” Now that Tim’s lunged into the lead with this
appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp, the tables have turned on Turkington. The appearance makes for one of the movie’s
most amusing gags, provided you know about the long-running inside joke. Bill Foster Laurence Fishburne’s Bill Foster serves as
an Ant-Man and the Wasp antagonist for about five minutes, with any villainy on his part
coming down to a difference in perspectives. The professor is introduced as a former partner
of Pym’s who worked alongside him on a project called Goliath. But what’s never made too clear is that Goliath
is a former superhero alter-ego of Hank’s, and that – for a while – Foster was Goliath. After parting ways with Pym, Foster gained
the power to grow to great heights himself through his tinkering with Pym particles. He then started a blaxploitation-era crime-fighting
career as the hero Black Goliath in a 1975 issue of Power-Man. Later, after using the name Giant-Man for
a while, Foster would just take the name Goliath. While Foster never goes gigantic in the Ant-Man
sequel, he definitely has the ability to, which may come in handy in the future. This is assuming Bill survived the movie’s
credit scene. With one Ant-Man and two Wasps snapped out
of existence, the remaining heroes probably need all the help they can get. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

Bu Nasıl Muhteşem Bir Fragman! ANTMAN And The WASP TEPKİ & REACTION

Bu Nasıl Muhteşem Bir Fragman! ANTMAN And The WASP TEPKİ & REACTION


Hello *Crasht* – Hello
– Welcome to the channel of berets We were outside and we saw that there is the Ant-Man trailer published! So we came back home and decided to shoot a reaction video -We did good
-Yup, I’m excited right now, especially about Wasp Let’s Start! Is there a last thin you want to say? Like what? -…if there is, hold it ‘cuz I’m starting!
– Go. A magnificent bridge oOoh cool… Oh, honeycomb! -You see that?
-Yes Oh there is the FBI What did you do? No way!… No way. Nice, nice, nice! wow I really like Antman – Ooohaha, he became Giant-Man!
– Yeah Super. Ooh I got something romantic there So good-so good! She is really better than you now to be honest Music to dance So silly I didn’t expect it to end with Hello Kitty! SO GOOD! Yes what do you think Miss Ezgi? Well yeah, it’s a very exciting trailer I think, I like the music Dııırııırııı Isn’t it a trailer with a fast tempo? The music made it so moving also and the action have settled nicely I liked the first Ant-Man movie.
And I will like the second. Wasp looks incredibly beautiful. And I kept saying “So good-so good” to Wasp like an idiot but that’s because I really wonder how Wasp would look As I understood, we will see her a lot and there is a chemistry between them! What do you think about the shrinking building? You said that the shrinking building scene is meaningless… Yes ‘cuz there’s even a pidgeon on it! Did you built it with Pym particles? Actually I find the shrinking of the building a bit exeggerated Think there is a, well, a cleaner guy left inside… Pfch! PFSHFKHK! Well then shrink the street, then… Shrink everything! Shrink the city, shrink the world!!! But of course why would we nitpick these details so seriously… I don’t know really. Why would it bother us, it’s a cool scene that’s all! Whateva! Well. He became Giant-Man again. Like in Civil War, do you remember? Yes, it shows it in the beginning too. I was waiting to see the original Wasp, her mother. In the traile-In the movie we will see her, she is in the cast By the way, Ant-Man’s second movie is like… … he wants to be with his child etc. etc. between his ups and downs in life But would Hank Pym leave him alone? – He won’t.
– He won’t. D’you know why did the FBI arrived home? Because you know that Ant-Man was in Captain’s side and now they are fugutives Is that why the FBI showed up? It’s a mess now. Wait a second… This film… …is it happening after the Civil War? It will be in the theatres after the Infinity War… Well the things in Infinity War may not change this situation Yeah right, it was about all Thanos after all. Yes, we watched a beautiful trailer I believe Yes, I’m glad Hank Pym is in there as the original Ant-Man. Yes. I thought we’d see him in the first fil and then toss him out. The thing they got on his foot, that the FBI clicked, that’s a tracking device right? Will it be like… He can loose it as he shrinks next time.. Whatever don’t mind that detail. Btw you remember that in the first movie Ant-man did… an extreme version of shrinking, got so small and got lost between molecules. And that’s why Hank Pym thought he could find his wife and bring her back He had a hope like that There is a scene like that in the trailer. A scene caught our attention. Yes, we see here that Hank Pym invented a machine… …to find her wife, and I believe that in that scene he will… … shrink extremely to search for his wife, huh? I think so. I mean we will find her somehow Won’t we? We will find the Wasp in the movie! Yes, I don’t think that they will just show the Flashbacks of old memories But I don’t know if we will be able to bring her back though. Ah, but then we’d be sad. We don’t know that. We don’t know that yet. But this seen got our attention. So you may keep it in your mind. We flyed, we fleed, we flowed and a trailer again passed like that It’s a trailer to showoff a bit So it’s nice. I like it too. I’m not in any expectations for the Ant-Man anyway. Yes. It’s not a movie that I watch over and over again. Yes, we completely had fun in the first movie and I think we will in the second one also. I don’t know if it would be a super-hero movie that we love so much though. I don’t know that but do we have fun, yes we have. I believe that I will love the Wasp also And I am happy to see her in the trailer this much. Yes? So, when the second and third trailers show up, we’ll do a review again. A more detailed review of course. This is a pre-review A pre-review. Nice, O.K. I approve Marvel, you can release this movie. Well then, see you, take good care of yourselves. I uploaded a video about what is on my Netflix list and what do I watch You can watch that after this video, I think it’s a very nice video. There is a monkey there that made me cry I talked about that too After that, watch our Ireland video! Ah, Do Watch the Ireland Video! Yes btw- Put that hand down… …the hand down… I think Anıl got over the top at editing now And that’s pretty much all about us. I think it is a great entrance with the first trailer – So
– When the next trailer released We’ll see each other We’ll see each other Love you See you bye Bye! SUBSCRIBE! Music was great… We know, you danced through the whole trailer! …duf, Duf, DUF-DUF!

Ant-Man & Wasp — Marvel Becoming — Cosplayers SoloRoboto & Kit Quinn

Ant-Man & Wasp — Marvel Becoming — Cosplayers SoloRoboto & Kit Quinn


My name is Steven Meissner
of SoloRoboto Industries, and today I’m becoming Ant-Man. Hey I’m Kit Quinn, and today
I’m becoming Wasp. I really liked the style,
cause we did the classic Ant-Man. I had all the accessories, I had gloves,
I had boots that would work we had the helmet. Kit volunteered to make me the suit. So she did it in an afternoon
out of a box of scraps, and it’s become one of
my favorite costumes. So that helmet was sculpted out of
mostly Bondo- automotive body filler. Sanded, molded in silicone, cast in resin,
and then chrome plated so it is real metal on the outside
and it is a 100% mirror polish. It’s basically flawless. It’s a litte north of 250 hours of work
just for the helmet, and the majority of that is sanding. I love making helmets,
helmets are super cool. Ant-Man is the only helmet
I like to wear. So, when it came to making Wasp, of course Wasp has a million different
outfits, cause she’s into fashion. When it came to making the armor
it was a sculpted piece. It was a sculpting challenge for myself to
take the different designs- cause animation changes by artist,
by issue, by panel… so to take what I liked from each of the
different panels and issues and create a different silhouette
that I thought was unique to me and to fit my body. We’ve made costumes together
for a number of years, Ant-Man and Wasp being
one of our biggest builds that we’re really together. So when you are lucky enough
to find somebody who’s symbiotic with your skill set, you’re unstoppable! It’s really awesome being able to have the person that I spend
so much of my time with -and want to- have one of the same hobbies that I have. We have a lot to do together that way. It’s special, in a really
kind of powerful way.

5 Best And 5 Worst Things About Ant-Man And The Wasp

5 Best And 5 Worst Things About Ant-Man And The Wasp


There’s a lot to like in Ant-Man and the Wasp,
the newest offering from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s definitely not without
its flaws. We’re here to take a look at what worked…
and what might have worked a little better. These are the five best and five worst things
about Ant-Man and the Wasp. Best: Dad of the year Some of the best moments in the film are when
Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang is hanging out with his young daughter Cassie, played by Abby
Ryder Fortson. The chemistry between Paul Rudd and Fortson
is exceptional, with Fortson bantering with Rudd like a seasoned professional. It’s hard to believe the two aren’t actually
father and daughter in real life, and with a relationship this strong to anchor the film,
everything else comes together beautifully. Worst: Previously on Ant-Man… Ant-Man and the Wasp is a sequel to Ant-Man
as well as Captain America: Civil War, so there’s a lot of story to fill viewers in
on. Unfortunately, the first several minutes of
Ant-Man and the Wasp are bogged down by clumsy exposition. From Hank and Hope sitting down to remember
the plot of Ant-Man to Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo rehashing the plot of Civil War and Age
of Ultron, it’s a lot of re-hashing from a writing team that is capable of more interesting
things. Best: Ghost isn’t transparent Hannah John-Kamen’s Ghost doesn’t even seem
to realize she’s a villain, and that’s because her motivation is pretty simple: survive. Her quantum powers are tearing her body apart,
and she doesn’t have long to live. In putting our heroes up against a villain
whose goal isn’t world domination but simple survival, the film feels fresh and distinct
from the 19 MCU outings that precede it. “Who is the bad guy in Ant-Man and the Wasp? Mmmm, we have opponents but not necessarily
villains.” Worst: They can’t all be winners On the other hand, Walton Goggins appears
in the film as a shady black market tech dealer named Sonny Burch, and the role is everything
Ghost isn’t. While Ghost has a compelling backstory and
a clearly defined personality, Burch is about as bland as they come. The film is saved by Ghost’s antagonistic
menace, but it’s hard not to regret seeing Walton Goggins wasted in a forgettable role. Best: Michael Peña steals the show The best heist in the original Ant-Man isn’t
Scott breaking into Hank’s house, it’s Michael Pena’s Luis stealing the show. He shines every time he’s onscreen. “Got their credentials?” “He’s in the system.” “I’m in the system?” “You’re in the system.” “The system?” Pena is once again a standout in a film packed
with memorable actors. His rapport with Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym
is still delightfully awkward, and they even manage to work in one of his sloppily narrated
stories. “I first met Scotty in Cell Block D and I
say ‘I’m Luis,’ and he says ‘I’m scotty, and we’re gonna be best friends.’ Scotty gets out of jail and that’s when he
met Hope and she’s all ‘look at my hairdo, I’m all business.” Wherever Ant-Man goes in the future, here’s
hoping Luis goes with him. Worst: Can Janet catch a break? Janet’s disappearance prior to the first film
pushes Hank into his angry, reclusive state and screws up his relationship with his daughter. Ant-Man and the Wasp has the opportunity to
undo this while giving one of the great Marvel characters her MCU due. Instead, it just trades one trope for another,
making Janet one of the film’s primary MacGuffins. When she finally appears in the end, she gets
maybe five minutes of screentime. Janet – and Michelle Pfeiffer – deserves better. Best: Low stakes, high reward Avengers: Infinity War took the MCU to the
highest stakes the franchise has ever seen, and came on the heels of an Asgardian apocalypse
and a Wakandan revolution. Luckily, Ant-Man and the Wasp gives viewers
a bit of a break from the ridiculous tension of the last MCU movie. The fate of the world isn’t at stake in this
new Ant-Man adventure. At its core, Ant-Man and the Wasp is about
the fight to save the lives of two people, Ghost and Janet van Dyne. It’s a comparatively small story, but just
what MCU fans needed after Infinity War. Worst: Time is money These days, most blockbusters have a run time
of over two hours, even though longer isn’t necessarily better. With comparatively small stakes and such a
simple story to tell, Ant-Man and the Wasp is absolutely a film that would benefit from
a shorter runtime. Even the director himself agrees. “I’m very vocal about the Ant-Man movies being
under 2 hours.” Unfortunately, it comes in at over two hours,
longer than the first Ant-Man film, Doctor Strange, and even the first two Thor movies. You’d think a movie about shrinking heroes
would know that bigger isn’t always better. Best: Laugh it up In the past, MCU movies have had a bad habit
of incessant quipping; even the previous Ant-Man movie did it. “It’s okay!” As funny as Ant-Man and the Wasp is, there
isn’t a single important dramatic moment in the film that gets interrupted by a character
making a joke or a gag going down. Serious moments are given the time to be taken
seriously, and that makes the comedic moments even better. Worst: Character matters The MCU excels at a lot of things, but its
best quality might be its ability to take characters and make them grow organically
from film to film. Unfortunately, this is Ant-Man and the Wasp’s
biggest flaw. Scott might grow as a character, but it’s
literal growth, not emotional. He ends the movie in the same spot he ended
in the first Ant-Man: romantically involved with Hope, and no longer in immediate trouble
with the law. Meanwhile, Hope experiences a significant
life event in her mother returning from the Quantum Realm, but the film never really shows
us what this means for her past the initial reunion. Despite the size-changing, neither character
gets a chance to really change as people. Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

Life of Ants – Part 1 (How Ant Colonies Are Made)


The Life of Ants – Part 1 In cold areas, like winter in the United States, ground can be frozen for several months. It can be a tough location for some animals to live, like ants. But still, you could see some hills still erected and intact. Under the mound, there’s a space protected from the cool weather, where ants sleep. There are lots of passageways and chambers. Ants do hibernate, especially during winter. You would be surprised to know this. There are 12,000 species of ants across the globe and these insects can bring things 20 times heavier that its own body weight. When the temperature increases, these little creatures come up and dwell the standpoint. If you’ve seen a bullet ant, it’s 1.2 inches in length, making it the biggest ant species ever listed. Changes in the weather stimulate ants. And, when it’s hot out there, they come to life. In the forest, some of the ant hills are self-reliant colonies; while others are connected to a wide super colony. The ants are amazing because they can survive the cold season. They have a fascinating central warming method. How is that? The decomposing vegetation that they collected prevents them from chilling inside their nest. Here’s another concept that will marvel you. During daytime, when sun is present and it’s not cloudy. You would see numerous ants roaming around their hills back and forth. You wouldn’t notice but there’s alternation going on there. Some ants from below the surface comes up and those that are on the ground with warm body already goes inside their nest. By this method, the ant with warm body helps in heating their nest. What a brilliant idea, isn’t it? That’s what you call “cooperation”. Interestingly, the ultraviolet rays of the sun protects their body from fungi or illness. What’s indeed exceptional is that there’s a queen inside the hill. Her body is double the size among the other ants. As a queen, she’s the integral member of colony that they are protecting. In an ant colony, typically only one queen can be spotted. But, there would be some instances wherein there could be multiple queens. Each queen will produce eggs that will become the next stage of breeding ants. The only kind of ants that have wings are the males and the queens. Their wings are dedicated to help them perform an essential activity. And, it happens during mating season. On a side note, the worker ants pile up as much food as they can. During the winter, the ants stay inside the hill because the surface is covered by snow. After cold months, the Spring approaches. This season is when you’ll see the surroundings begin showing their wonderful colors. Also, during this period, the ant eggs have hatched already from six weeks of waiting. Typically, when an ant bites you, your skin gets irritated, swell and turns red. It because of the formic acid. Some ants can emit formic acid. It comes out from the tip of their abdomen. When the acid penetrates the shell of an ant it dissolves the surface, leaving the inside exposed to contaminants around. The outer layer of an ant is called exoskeleton. Stay away from ants that can squirt formic acid because when the substance reaches your eye, you will dislike and won’t forget the experience. Do you know that ants quarrel with ants of other colonies? They can detect rival ants from another family by smelling them. Once found out, they will fight with each other and defend their territory. Usually, when one detected a rival ant, it goes back to its territory to call the other ants for a defense. When an ant started emitting formic acid, the rest of the gang smells the substance and they do the same. This usually happens when you disturb their territory. When a group of ants overpowered their rival, they collaborate to end the life of their opponent. When the victim is no longer breathing, they carry the body inside their nest. It has been known that ants eat their own kind. In fact, most types of insects. Actually, if you are in the middle of ant war, you could smell the acid. Interestingly, ant war lasts for more than one week. Do you know aphids? These are tiny bugs and live in colonies as well. Reproducing rapidly, they feed the sap by sucking the plant. Moreover, ants don’t harm nor eat them. Why is that? Aphids are beneficial for ants. Instead of ants eating aphids, ants feast on the honeydew that aphids excrete. The abdomen of an ant is like a sack. They fill it with food they can find around. When their abdomen is already full, they go back to their nest and support the colony for their needs. Speaking of honeydew, it’s vital for ants. Why? According to experts, this substance can help ants to rise heat in their body. Here’s another interesting fact. When you get the chance to see what’s inside of some ant hills, you will discover that it has presence of resin bits. By the way, resin is something that comes out when you break a branch of a cone-bearing tree. The tree uses this substance to protect and cover its injured part. Experts found out that ants are not eating the resins. Instead, they use it against disease. It becomes an antibacterial once the ants mix it with their acid. They need to do it to protect the ant eggs from fungi. There’s really so many things we can learn from ants. When the eggs of ants hatch, the larvae emerge. When they reach adult stage, they create silk cocoons. They are like butterflies that undergo metamorphosis. Now, let’s talk about the males and queen ants. When they become adult, their wings become developed and they will be able to fly and roam outside. When it’s breeding period, both males and queens fly and gather around to do one thing. That is for the males to mate and fertilize the queen ants. Here’s what happens. Queen ants stay on plants and release a substance, called pheromones, that when the male ant smells, they go crazy and become excited to mate. Sad to say, but, when the activity is done, the male ant dies after few hours due to tiredness. Moreover, after the activity and the queen ants get fertilized, they do their best to remove their wings, since it’s no longer needed for the next chapter of their life. They go back inside the chamber and soon they will lay thousands of eggs that will become future worker, male, and queen ants. Please like and subscribe. Thanks.
