I used an ant hill close to the house to populate my ant farm, with mixed success. Yes, I was able to get the farm going but I wasn't able to sustain it. Soon after I completed this video all of the ants died. My family wants me to add a shot of the dead ants but you can't really tell they're dead because they just look like little black dots. As an aside, the county later came along and mowed on the side of the road that the ant hill was on and cut the hill in half. I guess the ants have been unlucky lately.
