ANGEL OF DEATH/Guardian Goblin/DEATH SPRITES: Creatures Saving My Ant Empire

  • Published on Feb 9, 2019
  • Click here to SUBSCRIBE:
    The Angel of Death is finally revealed, the creature I've chosen to exterminate all surviving ants infected with parasitic mites in my ant terrarium, called the Hacienda Del Dorado. The Golden Empire, one of our O.G. ant supercolonies on this channel are on the brink of extinction, but thankfully, with the help of some unique creatures, including an unexpected Guardian Goblin and a new team of Death Sprites, our beloved ant empire and their massive home kingdom, may just be saved amidst their on going battle with parasitic blood-sucking mites.
    Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

      I cant shake the feeling you didn't like making it for the same reason I didn't like watching it. You pump it up and nothing happens. At all. This entire video could be stricken from your series and this channel would lose nothing.

      The whole premise of this video was to kill all survivors ... least the mites spread. If you are using observation and quantitative would this EVER be possible? I am not buying any of this and I bet this never gets posted.

    @AntsCanada hey antscanada! I recently stumbled across your channel while looking for vids related to rhino beetles (as I am a new beetle owner) and I absolutely love your channel! The way you narrate each episode is super cool and easy on the ears and there’s always something interesting going on in each episode.
    You’ve earned a new subscriber and faithful member of the AC family. Keep up the good work!! :D

    I absolutely love to watch the Toko in action in Philippines when on vacation there, I can watch it for hours in the light beam hunting for incoming insects. In the house I stayed last time there was a huge toko living behind a big painting in the living room, mostly coming out in the evening. I also enjoy the toko sound it makes, reminds me of the greate nation of Philippines with its manny wonders and beauty of nature both under and over water.

    I smoke bufonetine occasionally. Only with a trained DMT shaman of course as it can be dangerous to the body and the psyche of used by the inexperienced user or facilitator. And this particular bufo comes from the Bufo alvarius. We use it at the clinic ibogaine clinic in Rosarito. It’s an ibogaine clinic and we use it as a follow up adjunct medicine. Also, although
