    There are huge facehugger mites on my pet ants in their test tube ant farm nest. But in this episode, I attempted something crazy to help save them. Like a mini “ant surgeon”, I went in and extracted the facehugger mites from the colony. It took some crazy skill to do it, but I had no choice. The lives of my pet ants depended on it! Hope you enjoy this week's episode. Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

AC, I think you should extract all the mites, send a few to the experts and keep the others. This is because if they arent dangerous, once you get the All clear, you can release the remaining mites back into the colony, if they are indeed the vampire mites, you can kill the last ones, we let the colony live on. Also, if the ants start dying off fast (the ones you quarantined) then remove the mites, I hope this comment helped!

It seams most of the time good mites move on their own and do not attach to the ants while bad mites always attach. I feel like best thing would be to rid of the mites

a mite thats on a male ant on the side or top of it, it has 90% chance to escape and the mites under the wing it has 0% chance to escape.

In my opinion you should destroy them all, while this might seem extreme you shouldn't risk the colony and even if you get rid of the mites the ants will still live. if you do the other options you might be to late.

I think the best option is to remove them and get them identified by Experts, just in case they are bad so they don't do more damage while you wait for the answer and so if they are bad or good atleast you will gain knowledge if you encounter it again

I noticed one of the mites on the captured male ants is smaller, these mites are multiplying and it looks like they grow fast. I wouldnt delay on sending the mites to be examined, if you can take pictures of them prior to their alcohol bath it may help as well as inform the scientists that samples are on the way. In the mean time i would go ahead and treat these as a threat, that pile of dead ants looked far too big for a colony of this age, If they do turn out to be beneficial i would be greatly suprised.

The male ants do not do any work which makes them unessential unlike the female worker ants.

Answer: removing the males won’t endanger the colony since they do much less work. I believe the comment was “two less mouths to feed “

AC answer of the week: it was a perfect situation that the mites were on the male ants because the male ants don't help the colony so it would not be a big deal if the male died and or was taken out of the test tube.
