For all the many people on edge, waiting to know the fate of our ants, have I got a treat for you.
Remember, they had a small funeral:
After which something strange began to radiate from the grave:Well, it took over the farm.
Note the little tunnel about half way down. They dug that in apparent attempt to head off the fungus, which eventually jumped the tunnel. Now some ants are yellow, and others spend all their time on the clean side of the farm.
It was a great chance to teach the kids about quarantine procedures. :-)
