about 3000 fire ants spreading out on water forming a raft (side view)

Video is sped up approximately 10 times. Approximately 3000 fire ants originally shaped into a ball are placed on the surface water. They spread themselves out into a pancake shaped raft floating on the water. The raft is waterproof due to the tightly knit “weave” of the ants in the bottom layer which serves as a platform for the rest of the ants to walk freely on.

a fire ant ball is pushed underwater part 1

A continuation of another video I uploaded. In the previous video a raft of fire ants floating on the surface of water was pushed down using a pair of tweezrs. In this video the ant raft is fully submerged and forms a ball like shape while retaining a pocket of air inside the ant cluster. The ants you see are underwater and the shimmery light around the cluster is the interface between water and air with the air being inside the ant cluster. This video shows how the ant ball is water proof. Visit www.antlab.gatech.edu for more information and be sure to check out my other uploaded videos

Huge Fire Ants Mound ~

Fire ants are nasty little buggers. They sting or bite or something. Whatever it is, it hurts. SOmeone told me they are deadly. They have poison. I don’t like these little devils, are they from Satan. I also have footage of video from the destruction of another anthill, in high def. If you want to see the Hi-def, they come back later.
