Pheidole dentata devour a bug in byFormica's Bug Box
We've been waiting very patiently while the guys at byFormica develop their prototype Bug Box.
In the meantime we found this great video of a colony of Pheidole dentata devour a bug inside the Bug Box.
In the video you can see the ants find their way up through the holes in the bottom of the Bug Box and feast on the bug inside. Unable to remove the bug from inside, the formicarium is kept free from organic material.
