About half of the ants were alive and well when they arrived, the rest, not so much. I added the whole tube into the colony as I've found the communal mourning process helps to create an almost fraternal bond when integrating a new breed. All of my experience, all of my research, everything I thought I thought I knew about ant culture could not prepare me for what happened next. The ones that had appeared deceased had just been in some sort of catatonic state, and before long, possibly due to the nutritious nature of the soil or possibly due to some unholy sort of necromancy, they began to stir, to rise.
Initially, the whole colony appeared to celebrate. It seemed to be a momentous occasion, but as I excitedly jotted down notes in my journal...or ANThology if you will ;)...the risen quickly began turning on their brethren. They were noticeably more aggressive, biting at the heads of others, yet for some reason I've not yet accounted for, slower. They began to cannibalize the other ants, but this was not your run of the mill larval consumption for purposes of population control. It was chaos and panic all throughout. Frantic migrations and glass tappings in an effort to escape. As the initial dozen or so feasted, more and more ants began to take on these characteristics...this, hunger.Read more ›
I have to admit, I was skeptical making this purchase, as I had never done mail-order on anything living before. I figured that some would be dead on arrival, and the others would last maybe a few weeks.
When the ants arrived, all were alive, in a well-sealed package containing a small piece of carrot that kept their hunger at bay while in transit.
In the first few days, we had a couple of casualties, but the rest soldiered on. After a couple months, maybe 4 others were laid to rest. I was amazed at the longevity of the others, most of which lasted beyond 3 months, with the last ones finally joining their brethren toward the 4-month mark.
My whole family was mesmerized by these industrious creatures, whose work included digging several tunnels and encasing their fallen compatriots in the gelatinous substance they were eating and tunneling through.
Fast delivery, 100% survival on arrival, and longevity - with this type of purchase, who could ask for anything more? We're very satisfied customers and would order again from this company... if only my son had another ant farm to re-gift.
Definitely recommend getting ants for ant farm rather than hunting for them in your backyard.
