  • Dear Ant Lovers, AC Family, this war is crazy! I really need your opinions, though so let me know what you guys think about the things I ask about in this video. Also, hope you guys remember to leave the video a THUMBS UP, SHARE it with your friends, and SUBSCRIBE (with BELL notifications turned to ALL) if you enjoyed this week's episode. It would really mean a lot to me! Thank you so much! Ant love forever! So what should we do, guys?

    • kind of like the invasive ants and maybe try getting some if you can some honeypod ants they are good for transporting food in battle so if an ant in war is hungry the honeypod ant will give the ant in war some of its honey

    • you should try getting some harvester ants they are extremely powerful and they only attack those that attack others

    • might sound cold hearted but try and kill them all starting with the ghost and fire ants

    • Plz just release the big heads (not the invasive ones

    • Support the native ants

  • Antscanada, you asked about fire ants eating chickens, and they are in fact a serious hazard to chickens, especially for young chicks and small bantam breeds. They will kill and eat chickens if they peck at fire ant nests or if the fire ants are especially hungry for flesh.

  • Transport native ants to the area of invasive ants and put the strongest natives you got against them.

  • Boiling water and support the native ants. PROTECT the eco system!!


  • There safe

  • i like how he is commentating

  • Keep up the awesome work

  • Only one native ant can survive from team native or at least I think so. Weaver ants are not going down

  • Attack invasive 🐜

  • world war of insects

  • So we have bullets ants to the philiphines oh god

  • super contenant great job

  • Please pour boiling water on 2 of those fire ant colonies and one of the ghost every day for a month

  • I think thar the size of the fire ants colony is to big and to dangerous for all antopia

  • I wonder what would happen if the ants fought in cohorts or used more organizational tactics :)

  • do it do it do it do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • well nature let us humans interfere between that is the reason why are we scared of more advanced alliens

  • allow it to take there course

  • Hi

  • help native

  • They are good I burned 2 fire ant queens because they bite me a lot

  • The video is just a bunch of table's turning

  • Antscanada lies to it's fans and rips us off

  • Do you think a ant can feel ANTicipation?

  • Somewhere in this list of comments I bet someone said... In Russia insect wars with you, or something to that effect

  • fed native ants

  • Also the difference between ants and termites is termites are eating wood and ants don't also queen termites can get bigger and queen ants don't but some are big....

  • Ohh I wanna help the team native antttsss my vote is help the team native ants by puting food near the nests of the native ants and plant more trees so more weaver ants go btw I join team native and team termitesss plsss notice

  • i would get native ant spieceys and put them in antopia to renforce the native ants

  • Release native ants

  • Do both Options

  • You might not know When an invasive species is good for the habitat Do some research🐧🐦🐤🐜🪰🪲🪳🦈🐠🐟

  • Your goats and chickens are safe🐥🐣🐤🐮🐮🐮🐜🐜🐜

  • The fire ants were eating the frog because they were hungry🐜🦟🐜🦟🐜🦟🦗🕷🪰🪲🪳🦎🪱🐛🐌🦋

  • Let nature take it’s force And that’s just nature🐾🐜🦟🐸🪲🦋🐛🕷

  • Invasive Ants:Yes! We‘re winning the war! AntsCanada: *drops native ants into another location Invasive Ants: Huh? It grew really fast!

  • extermenate 2 invasive colonys

  • Is he asian? Does he live in asian countries then why is the name AntsCanada

  • How do you even record that??and what do you use as mic to have such good sound

  • Hans get ze flammenwerfer!! Mercyless method!

  • you could maybe try and control the population of invasive ants with out completely wipeing them out

  • you must help the natives win.

  • I'm on team Termite

  • Ancestors more Like Antcestors hehe

  • 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗❗

  • 😭😔🙁😕😟🤕🤧

  • Why not release some of your pet native ants . Is it possible

  • "I'm interested to hear what you think" Repeatedly ignores everyone tell him to kill them.

  • The native ants win

  • I really believe that you should use the boiling water technique against the fire ants, at least. They're particularly destructive and invasive.

  • honestly in my opinion you should always exterminate any invasive species. 90% of the time native wild life can't stop them and aren't evolved to deal with them. we're having a prob with many invasive species and they're killing off various native wild life.

  • The opening is straight out of an anime

  • add 1 of your bulet ants and big headed ants

  • be careful when you shower I just figure out that when you shower you might flush a few ants when you open the shower, PS now any tip for fire ants in your house? from Malaysia.

  • This channel is absolutely brilliant

  • Burn em


    • @AntsCanada also maybe try boiling pouring boiling water on some of the bigger invasive ant collinies

    • @AntsCanada i hope i'v helped (sorry for some incorect spelling)

    • I've been thinking of doing this.

  • option two

  • except chicks

  • I dont think you should worry about your animals

  • go team native ants!

  • help the native ants!!!!!

  • DO IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Your chickens and goats should be fine we actually raise both and just as long as they can they will move away chick's could be a problem since they are slower

  • food

  • Yes fire ants can and will eat small animals like House cats and dogs and it would not surprise me if they tried to kill your chickens or goats but as long as they can move they will most likely be ok

  • Use bait for the ghost ant

  • If you put a lot of good food at the native ants sites wouldn’t that attract the invasive ones to attack?

  • Ant-serizawa *points to AntsCanada* 'nature has a balance power I believe he is that power-let them fight'

  • Been watching this channel for a week or two now, and I'm a little confused. So the channel is named AntsCanada. At first I figured that meant he's canadian, but then I saw a picture outside his appartment, so not canada. I'm guessing he lives in either south america or south east asia. The accent sounds american, and he's also white. So I'm guessing he moved to one of the above options later in life. Not looking for a life story here, just noticed a few things and eventually got more and more curious

  • Antscanada : horn beasts , colorful nomads....... People who just got here : dude its just a goat and a ladybug

  • Well fire ant won't eat your chicken butt fighter and will eat your baby chickens

  • The strategy for turning the tide in favor of the native species should be boiling water, planting trees, providing direct support for the native species, and releasing some of the native species that you have. There is no easy answer for dealing with this situation, but you gotta do what you gotta do if it means the preservation of the lands of Antopia.

  • Anteater you need for your property to slowdown the population..Boiling water down the holes of the Fire Ants and Ghost Ants..Eco-friendly pesticide to kill out the Non-Native Ants.[ Pour vinegar down the non native ant holes.]Release the Asian Bullet Ants onto your grounds from your tanks to wipe out the enemy ants.

  • Team mayive ants have a giant ant on there side Team native ants will win or not?

  • Bring them to war fight all against the team invasive ant

  • Great pets ants!

  • Kill em

  • the next episode ant d-day

  • 12:06 ant lesbians ant lesbians ant lesbians

  • Am voting natives ant

  • Do the second opion

  • This is bad

  • Here in Rochester fire ants are very common and they travel in groups of thousands

  • what if you use the ghost ants to get rid of the fire ants

  • release weaver or bullet ants right next to the fire and colonies, for the quickest wipe-out possible, which will give the invasives much less time to regrow

  • When you said that bullet ants have a sting that hurts like crazy, you were making a massive understatement!!!!!! Bullet ants are rated to have the most painful sting of any insect in the world, by a crazy person who collected every stinging insect and got stung by all of them, then wrote a book rating the stings called "The sting of the wild". The pain lasts for twelve hours, and the guy said it feels like walking across a bed of burning charcoal with one three-inch nail embedded in each of your heels!!

  • Has the war ended

  • release colonies that eat invasive ants so theye get wiped out.

  • Use hot water just use it

  • Me routing for the termites be like.

  • Well my grandfather was in the army in Texas and got stung so he threw tear gas and grenades I dont think you can get them

  • l m vietnamese

  • Pour molten aluminum in an ant hole, pull it out and you'll have some ant art


  • 7:12 AntsCanada: Should I worry about th- me and my partner in sync: YES

  • I hate ghost ants!

  • I hate ghost ants!

  • orrrr put ant larva eating snakes in the invasiv ant nests
