      Hey man here me out do you know a Blue Ant with hard armor exoskeleton? Because when I was like grade 4 I was in P. E class we were cleaning the plants then I saw a Blue ant with hard exoskeleton that has spikes I don't know what kind of ant that is.
      Do you know what I just pick up? It's really hard to kill it I tried but it's to hard to rip it apart I tried battling it other big ants that I found near the tree but I could not simple get rid of it.
      Tell me plz!

                                        The argument of the cold killing off exotic ants isn't a bad one.
                                        Still though I'd rather people just stick to their native ants.
                                        There are too many cases of humans screwing up ecosystems for us to add more if em.

                                                                                            I want to start my own ant colony, and I want some advice. i notice most of the time you feed your ants food like roaches, and other things that are basicly meat, like that turtle. I am not sure what I should feed my ants. ive been craving strawberrys, and its tempting to feed them berrys too, however im not going to do anything like that untill i know my ants will like it. plus i dont even have a ant colony yet so.... well yeah. Just want some advice. Im keeping in mine acidic foods like pineapple can burn the ants.
