I think you affected any potential results by clearly making the opening from colony #1 into the tank much different than the other colonies. All the other colonies had cotton surrounding and sometimes partially covering the end of the tube.
Yeah, and I think that opening all of them at once would have made for a better experiment, instead of letting one colony explore the space first. It seemed to me that when the other colonies explored the opening, they detected the scent of the first colony, and therefor avoided venturing out. I wonder if there is a way to entice them to go out despite that. Perhaps giving them a smaller chamber to explore that then connects into the central hub?

Im pretty sure that the first scout filled the arena with its scent. Thats usually a good idea if you want to bring foreign animals together - use neutral space for meeting the first time. Since ants are pretty much always marking their territory it would have been a good idea to let them all in the arena at the same time.

No. Just no. He has kept ants for over a decade, and one would expect that he would know one of the core rules of ant keeping which is to never combine colonies. He ignored all of his knowledge of ant keeping and ethics and instead decided to make a video completely dedicated to views even though his channel is regularly frequented by beginners to ant keeping. It is damaging to the hobby because it presents an unrealistic picture of what ant keeping is and endangers the lives of his pets in process. Of course, none of this matters cause look at dem views!

@@josephjackson9679 Did even read the tittle? Thats the whole point of the experiment to see what will happen interrupting it will make no sense since it's just not how it's gonna go without interrupting.
@@vavalaz and do you even know what an experiment is? I've got a background in psychology research so let me lay it out for you: The purpose of an experiment is to find out how one thing affects another. You have dependent and independent variables. Your independent is the thing you change (in this case the number of queens in proximity to each other from 1 to 7) and your dependent is what effect this has (in this case them getting along, battling etc). He's already stated his hypothesis which is that they will either form a large colony after a brief wrestle or go into full-on war, which is known as a two-tailed hypothesis. However, these queens getting along or killing each other off can be influenced by a ton of variables. This is why controlled variables are important, what you call "interrupting it". By not putting the colonies together all at the same time, for example, you ruin the results of your study from the word go. For all we know the reason they fought had nothing to do with being single-queened ant colonies. Potentially, the ONLY food source was marked with the scent trail of colony 1 and claimed. Maybe the whole middle section was, and so these fledgling vulnerable colonies were reluctant to risk engaging with a potentially better-established colony. Maybe a lack of food access therefore forced them to attack and consume other colonies Another is that each of their access points were different. Colony one had some tubing and then was right into the middle part. All the others would have had to walk through cotton wool to get in, much more difficult. As you can see, controlling your variables is very important here. For all we know they COULD have gotten along, but because this experiment was so poor we would never know. Just the same, they may never have gotten along and sadly now we wont know for sure what social structure this species has

The other colonies probably smelled the pheromones laid down by the first colony and regarded it as 1s territory. It would've been better to start off with 2 or 3 exposed to the arena at the same time. Maybe the later colonies would feel emboldened to explore territory that already has multiple scents. Basically like the difference between private and public property.

Nice video. I think that the cotton wool prevent the ants from coming out.
How about: give access to the jelly to all colonies inside their respective "homes" so they're all healthy first, and then after that introduce into the main common area a relatively easy to defeat ant natural predator to see if the fed workers from different colonies will "bond"/"ally" to attack the common ant enemy together. Since they are already fed, there should be no envy/agression as happened in this experiment? In worst case you can pull out the common enemy if ants seem to be in trouble...

How fascinating was the ending bit??!! I mean, incredible. We rarely see colonies interact in a great quality video, but when we do, its hundreds of ants everywhere. There is no way for us to trully understand what if going on and the voiceover is usually more of a storytelling ,rather than a real description of event. But here?? Here you can see its not chaos at all, there is intent and reason for everything that happens, the ants dont really stand around waiting or being stupid, they react instantly and with purpose. The grab, the steal of the nectar, the escape, the run aways, the emergency quick cleaning... everything. Trully amazing and, while I had huge appreciation for ants and all other animals for that matter - this is just another piece of the puzzle that makes me understand and appreciate them even more.

Ever since I was young keeping ants and ants in general have interested me. During the cold months it's really tough to find a queen in the wild. In Northern America. Plus getting a queen in America at all is almost impossible. Can't wait for the warmer months

Why not just add them all at once? the first colony has a great advantage , and will be the most dominant out of all the ants because of it.

Can we seriously take a moment to appreciate Antscanada’s ability to narrate the videos in such a beautiful way!?!?!?!?!?

Hi 👋 I am not a ant specialist but all I can say is that keeping the colonies seperate is a better idea 💡. They will grow if they are in there own colony. If they mix with other ants 🐜 it can be deadly. Good Luck and It was a great video.
As the 6th colony 1 scout was in the colony 3 tube I was continuously getting chills as the colony 1 scout was being checked out by the colony 3 ants

Great experiment, but if I may say as an observation most of the tubes were covered by cotton except #1 if you can see in the video. Try completely removing cotton from entry way the ants may have been influenced by cotton material. Try it see what happens .

Maybe colony one had a head start because they were able to lay a “scent” being the first so it made the next up more cautious and resistant to going forward.

Agreed, the first one out marks its territory.

Would the cotton on col. 2+3 openings have prevented them for leaving as easily as the first? Seeing that the first was less obstructed

😂 glad you mixed them, would hate to see more of these pest in homes.

For the “experiment” to work you needed to have all of the cotton balls removed at once you gave the first colony an advantage

Guys, I'm coming to Orlando, Florida this Friday, Saturday and Sunday! I'll have a MEET & GREET, doing a talk, and will be part of different panels for an event called AnimalCon! Of course, I'm there representing ANTSCANADA! #AntLoveForever
Sounds fun

I think you could mix them no problem, but every other colony hasn’t eaten. You basically filled one ants stomach and the other ants saw their only source of food.
This is really fascinating ❤️ and the way of explanation is just amazing 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
