Ant Chat: Episode 18 Moving More Colonies

Warning! Mevio's "Interactive" ads have been crashing my browser upon completion! Here is a link to the episode hosted on Mevio where "Interactive" ads don't show up as often, thank god. Sorry about the inconvenience, I've contacted Mevio about it. You can also subscribe to us Ad free on iTunes.

Update: Interactive ads don't seem to be crashing my browser anymore. Let me know if it's still a problem for you though.

As test tube setups slowly run out of water the need to move colonies becomes essential. Ants vary in size and habit though so this time I show examples of 3 colonies: Prenolepis imparis, Camponotus castaneus, and Lasius neoniger/alienus. They are moved from one test tube setup to another, and this is done until a more appropriate setup can be provided for the colony. Enjoy!
