Black Ants in My Yard – Texas Ant Control – Bulwark Exterminating


So here in Texas we have the small
Southern Black Ant as you can see here These are called sugar ants because they
show up on your kitchen counter they infest the neighborhoods, they feed
off of the nectar on the flowers, eventually when the flowers are not in
bloom they look for a better sources and move into shadowy areas like around
the foundation or if you can pan in they start penetrating the walls of the
house this particular home has about fifteen
locations on it that they are entering the home. So our goal with Bulwark is to put a barrier around the exterior
of the home, you will eliminate the colonies on the outside so they don’t get a chance
to get inside.

Hard-working honey bee – an amazing creature


There are 7 species of a honey bee, with 44 subspecies They can survive in almost every climate Because honey bees have been domesticated to produce honey for human consumption, they are now found all over the world in different habitats. While honey bees can thrive in domesticated or natural environments, they generally prefer living in meadows, orchards, woodlands, gardens, and any other areas where there is an abundance of flowering plants.

You Wish You Had Mites Like This Hissing Cockroach | Deep Look


Is there anything more lowly than the lowly
cockroach? Uh, yeah there is. That’s a cockroach mite. It lives its entire life on this cockroach. But these hitchhikers are doing a lot more
good than you might think. The mites are only on one type of cockroach – these
guys – Madagascar hissing cockroaches… …which are known for their hiss, of course. They do that when disturbed or looking for
a mate. They only live in the Madagascar rainforest
on an island off the coast of Africa. And they’re bigger than the cockroaches
you might find in your kitchen, like these brown-banded roaches. These pests will eat anything: food scraps,
poop, trash – you name it. As a result, they can spread disease or trigger
allergies. Hissing cockroaches are detritivores – they
mainly eat decaying leaves, tidying up the forest floor. They can even be kept as pets, because they’re
more docile than their common cousins. And most importantly, they’re a lot cleaner
… thanks to a permanent population of tiny housekeepers. Ok, yeah, it looks pretty bad. The mites crowd together in the crevices – places
where the cockroach can’t brush them off. They get their meals near the cockroach’s
head, gobbling up the food bits and saliva that the roach leaves behind. When they get thirsty, they head to the spiracles:
the openings the roach uses to breathe. The mites get water vapor from them. The roach also has one special hissing spiracle
for that signature sound. The mites live on a single roach, unless they
get passed on from roach parent to roach baby. They’re doing these cockroaches a favor. By cleaning up the old food and debris, the
mites help keep them free of mold and pathogens … potentially extending the roaches’ lives. Really, both a hissing cockroach and its mites
have the same important job: keeping the world a little bit neater. Not so lowly, after all. Looking for more wild science adventures? Journey to Earth’s most remote laboratory

Q&A – Are the wasps on my corn beneficial?

Q&A – Are the wasps on my corn beneficial?


I’ve seen wasp on my corn more than usual this year, are they harmful or
beneficial? And does the dry spell this year have anything to do with their presence? And this is from Mister Mike in
Ringgold, Georgia. So thanks for watching, Mister Mike, Ringgold, Georgia, and obviously they had a dry spell. We didn’t
have too much of a dry spell this May. – We’ve not had a dry spell, but wasps are
beneficial. I would say they would be a beneficial. They would attack a lot of caterpillars and things like that.
I don’t know whether the dry spell has any effect on the number of wasps that are there. It might just indicate there’s
something for them to predate upon. They’re predators and so take care of those wasps. Don’t get up too close and
personal with them. They may take it wrong. – Yeah, that’s right. Don’t start swatting
or things like that. – Yeah, don’t start swatting the wasp or anything
like that, but I certainly would be good to have, wasps are beneficial about any crop. – I think they’re only there to help. They’re
beneficial.

Messor barbarus – 11 – The Awakening – Ant Season 2018

Messor barbarus – 11 – The Awakening – Ant Season 2018


The Messor is back from hibernation! Ant season 2018 has now officially started. Hey Guys, welcome to the Amazing Ants Channel! I know there have been no video for a longer
time and I am really sorry about that, but like my ants, I’d just needed a break myself. Let’s start directly with the ants. What have they done in during all this time
in hibernation? You won’t believe it but also during hibernation
they always kept on working. They redesigned their whole out world! Here at the left side of the formicarium they’ve
made these ultra cool mini ravines. Sometimes I can see a worker ant carrying
brood through these mini ravines from one nest to the other. So awesome what they did there! As you can see they moved so much sand they
build an entire new landscape! That’s like terra forming in their scale. And look at all this sand in the right back
corner. That hill has to grow only 5 cm more and they
have built their way out of their formicarium. Let’s have a look inside the colony. Most of the ants have survived hibernation,
they had enough seeds and still have enough, the temperatures have been very ant-friendly
and I’ve watered the whole formicarium twice and of course they always had a water source
available. So yeah, it was not that hard for those ants. They still have some brood, while in hibernation,
the larvae’s development stops, with higher temperatures and proteins they will start
growing again. So we should be able to see first workers
of 2018 in some weeks! And here we see the first ants baking ant
bread this year. They often do this like here in small groups
together. And due to their social stomach, they share
this freshly produced ant bread within the colony. In the satellite nest at the left side, they
store lots of seeds. These ants there are the grain guardians. And they have this very strange behavior at
the entrance. Why do they all stay at the glass near the
entrance? Maybe they are really planning an escape! They didn’t sit the whole winter at the
glass. They started with this some days after I raised
the temperature from 14 to 21° C. There is already an escapee at the edge, I’m
really starting to worry. What the heck are they going to do? PTFE works fine so far like we can see here,
but I really have to renew my outbreak barrier, somewhere must be a small gap. Some hours later they are still at the glass. I made a time-lapse so we can see what they
are doing there all the time, are they just chilling at the glass or are they up to something? I think I have to give the ants a reason to
stay in the formicarium, they need flesh, they are greedy for proteins. They have received no insects for like 10
weeks. So we’re going to feed them these two adult
crickets, both freshly killed with boiling water. The ants should not pull the crickets down
into their nest, so I pinned them with a tooth pick to a small cork piece. Now the ants can’t pull them that easily
into their nest, first, they have to cut the crickets into small pieces. I’d put the crickets inside the formicarium
and only some minutes later, there had been dozens of ants starting to proceed the long-awaited
proteins. The ants also had the force to flip the whole
cricket-toothpick-cork-feeding setup over. While I was watching the ants proceeding their
meal, I recognized they are acting extremely aggressive; they are like piranhas in a blood
rage. I’ve never seen the
Messor colony acting that aggressive to their food. Maybe that’s because they hadn’t any proteins
for such a long time and this first meal of the season has to be proceeded as fast as
possible. The next morning, there wasn’t much left
over of the crickets, only a very small part of the left one. To give them all what they could need, I also
provided them with a lot of water. It is time for another rainfall like in one
of the earlier videos. I don’t want to damage their structures,
which the Messor colony built in hard work during the whole winter, so I’m using a
small pipette to water the whole formicarium. It takes a little bit of time, but due this
slowly watering, I can ensure not to water to much and their awesome structures won’t
collapse. Hopefully. The ants really enjoy the water; so much ants
are rushing out for it. The water will not only moisten the top. The Ytong stones will also absorb a lot of
this water and the nest will be moistened too. I think I’m going to provide them in future
with water by letting it rain. They start being so active after the rainfall. And they also can dig, because the sand-clay
mixture gets softer. And these ants right here really love digging.

Ant Control – Ant Colonies – Ant Guru


Welcome we’re talking today about ants specifically
ants in the desert I want to go over how ants bred what a ant colony is Under what conditions should you
expect to find an ant problem I want to tell how they operate how they react
to certain types of sprays talk about the ants themselves Ants live in a colony there a social
insect there may be different kinds of workers
in the colony there’s the queen or multiple queens those are the ones who are
responsible for reproducing they lay eggs deep in the nest queens an important fact to know about
queens they never ever come out another important fact is that there are worker majors and
worker miners what we call them forgeres and only about twenty percent of an
average colony ever comes out of its nest in other words are, I’ll repeat that only twenty percent ever come out of the
nest so if they take a vacuum and vacuum up all the ants they see, did they get rid of there ant
problem no because the worker miners are the ones that help
the queen and help the baby larva and the baby ants grow up to be big ants
and they never come out and they always have food supply in their nest. But there is
a fourth class called the winged reproductives those are the ants that sometimes have wings
on them and they are males and females and they
fly up and usually mate in the air and they fly to a new location and they
start a new colony of all the different classes probably the most
important are the queens because unless you get the queen you don’t get rid of the problem a lot of people ask the question why do ants
walk in a line everybody knows that ants walk in a
line and they walk in a line because certain
forger ants can lay down a chemical trail it’s a little chemical hormone that
they lay down and other ants follow it to the food
source chemical trails laid down by ants can
last up to a year how does that, I mean what
implications or what what is the kind of conclusions can we
draw from that well if we eliminate an ant colony that is in a consumer’s wall completely eliminate it right? let’s say there’s another ant colony floating around in their yard just kind of living out there and they
pick up on the chemical trail that led into the house that lead the first colony
into the house they pick up on that they can shoot right up in. It’s like a freeway
system is already been built for them so it’s like there floating around out in the yard living kinda good but its still hot there still
looking for a better place to live they come across that chemical trail that
that forger ant put down from last colony that we eliminated and they’ll
shoot right back into the house

Bees have more brains than we bargained for

Bees have more brains than we bargained for


The humble bumble bee has a surprisingly flexible
brain. They can come up with most efficient solution
to receive a reward, rather than simply mimicking what they see others do. The bees were taught to move a ball to the middle of a platform. If successful, they got a sugary treat. They were taught by other bees, by fake bees held by scientists, or by an invisible “ghost bee”–actually a magnet But they didn’t learn so well from the ghost
bees. Real bees were better teachers Rather than mimicking the conditions they were shown, bees went off script to solve problems The demonstrations they learned from all involved
yellow balls. This ball is black, not yellow But the bee still chooses it as the closest
ball to the center. It knows it doesn’t need a yellow ball specifically;
any ball will do This kind of cognitive flexibility is previously
unknown in insects–clever girls!
