Whether it be fire ants, pharaoh ants, black crazy ants, yellow crazy ants, or marauder ants, there is no safety from parasitic mites. Sadly, mites showed up again in one of our colonies. Our pharaoh ants, named the Tomb Raiders have been facing a growing mite problem and the impeding dangrs and complications that have arisen have caused me to have to make the ultimate decision: keep or release. Facing the tough decision to release a pet ant colony is a tough decision for any ant keeper.

Today, I go over the facts, biological, ethical, statistical and more, and explain why I decided to do what I ultimate chose to do. You guys also helped me come to the decision by way of a vote. Watch what happened and what fate befell our Tomb Raiders.
