cast into ant colony

Recommended Posts

Pretty cool I'd sure hate to be pouring molten metal into an ant hill and discover there was damp soil down there. I've seen a couple examples of casting them with I think a two part resin or plastic (I don't recall) those hives were huge, two story house size and took days to excavate.


This is all cool stuff, thanks for the link.

We're always trying to kill off ants but they are really a very beneficial little critter, just look at how the aerate the soil, much better at it than I am. I don't mind them as long as they stay out of the house and don't kill my baby tortoise or box turtles when they are hatching. And, yes, I do realize that some species are invasive, destructive and are just not right for the local environs where they have taken up residence and that they do pose risk to livestock, native species and humans.(Sorta like Africanized Bees)
