I hate bugs but scientists doing this killed billions of ants and destroyed a wonder that most likely took years to build, in order to satisfy their curiosity.

Doesn't seem right. IMO



I understand what you mean, but in the greater scheme of things these ants are probably 1/1000th the amount that are actualy in the world, quite possibly evenless significant than that.

But The things these ant are doing is truly amazing. If people weren't considered with only making themselves happy then we might get something done. Truly a great find, thank you for sharing.

You ever feel like really cool and interesting topics are posted so as to divert our attention somewhere else?

Why is this a top subject. It has nothing to do with anything secret, or top secret...or even above top secret.

Were all being played. I really dont understand what the hell these ants have to do with anything thats going on in the world right now.

What conspiracy is being discussed on these ants? What is being speculated?

I don't really care if something isn't a conspiracy. It's the mix of amazing stuff on ats that makes it what it is. And this is very a thee essy indeed.imo

These not so conspi topics are as good as, if not better than the average thinfoilers. The information one can dig out of these nsc topics is probably far more definite so there be far less debunking going on. There is no boring bickering between believers/disbelievers. Just people enjoying the core of the topic and the inevitable one or two poor lost soles being distracted from what they deem more important.

When your attention is being diverted, why blame others for that?

My answer to your question is no, I don't feel like that. This topic is on the toplist because the hive put it there.

You even helped lay the "chemtrail" to this topic because I don't look at the toplist. I refresh the "recent post" tab and now it gained another s&f because of your post.

Epic.

Thank you for writing, I appreciate your opinion though I don't know why you needed to insult me.There is hundreds of other threads on ATS that are conspiracy related if you dont like this then find another that suits you

Poor ants, but other than that, this is amazing. We humans think we're the most intelligent creatures on this planet, and if ants are intelligent enough to make such a complex home and even have their own cooperative tribes, then maybe that concludes animals like cats are as smart as us. It's known a cat has an IQ of a 7 year old, but perhaps they are just as developed as us and could do similar things if they had hands, etc? It's time we realize that critters big and small are just as important as we are.

This is amazing, now I feel bad about killing the ants when I was a kid. It really does prove how little we know about the world around us, that's for sure. It also proves just how much we can accomplish if we put our minds to it... I wonder if other insects have huge "cities" too, just last night I was thinking about bees.. it's finally starting to warm up where I live, and yesterday was the first I've seen bees flying around this year... so while being bored and trying to get to sleep last night, I found myself thinking about thousands of random things like usual.. and I was wondering where the bees go during the winter? I think it's safe to assume that they just hibernate in their hives during the winter, but it's funny - because I've never seen a bee hive anywhere out in the snow, have any of you?

If they don't hibernate in the winter, where do they go.. inside the trees?

Birds also make their nests, but do they live in the same nest all the time, or do they keep moving from place to place, only to stay and rest in their nests when it's time to give birth... I don't know, do you?

What about beetles, moths, flies, grasshoppers - where do they all go during the winter?? Underground?

Even weirder are the Cicadas, they live underground for several years - I think it's like 14 years off the top of my head but it might be even longer like 28... when they come above ground to reproduce - creating a lot of very strange, loud "buzzing" noise when it happens - that's how I know what they are... just some more strange stuff for people to think about.

If they don't hibernate in the winter, where do they go here is the answer?
Honeybees don't hibernate but remain in their hive when it is too cold to fly. Workers that are alive in the fall stay alive throughout the winter. They surround their queen forming a "bee ball" made up of constantly moving bees. This movement creates warmth that keeps the hive from freezing. For another example, the bald faced hornet queen will go underground and hibernate, usually under a log, while all her workers die off after the first hard frost.

Most insects stay here year round. They employ a variety of tactics for survival. One is simply to move in with humans. Insects such as ladybird beetles (ladybugs), cluster flies, elm leaf beetles and boxelder bugs overwinter as adults in wall voids, attics and other out-of-the-way places in homes and other structures.

Some kinds of adult insects can endure long periods of extreme cold
while hibernating if those periods are continuous -- not interrupted by
warm thawing days -- and some, believe it or not, survive being
frozen.

Some of the moths --especially the tent caterpillar, bagworm,
cankerworm, gypsy moth and other injurious kinds -- pass through
winter as masses of eggs. The woolly bear caterpillar, larva of the
Isabella tiger moth, is a familiar example of those which hibernate in
the larval stage. The caterpillars of many kinds of moths, however,
spin silken cocoons around them and change into pupae before winter
comes. ..

Many birds migrate in the fall. Because the trip can be dangerous, some travel in large flocks..Most birds migrate shorter distances..Nests are simply used as nurseries. Birds do not stay in a nest once the babies are old enough to live on their own. Birds live in trees and bushes. Females only stay in a nest if there are eggs or little ones.

and thank you for the links i will read up on those and thanks for your reply
