He does, he just doesn't talk about it much.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Seeing that AntsCanada lives in a pretty amazing place full of a variety of ants (though some are invasive)...

What if he kept a termite species and showed them on his Youtube channel? I imagine where he lives there'd be some pretty amazing termite species.

Not only are termites easier than ants (in some ways at least...they are terrible at escaping. Worst escape artists ever), but they are pretty neat too. The only "maintenance" they'd need is termites dry out pretty fast so they can't dry out at all. But I imagine where AntsCanada is, it be humid a lot so not as big a deal I don't think.

I know its an ant channel, but not many people know how amazing termites can be. And many people seem to think they are harder than ants or there is a risk they can escape, but that is less a chance than ants. Plus (more so for California since not much humidity) they tend to dry out fast. They might be not as "exciting" as ants, but they are still really neat (and for me, relaxing) to watch, especially when the colony is big. I don't know what termites he could find since I mostly know termites of the US, but I imagine they'd be pretty awesome.

Here is a good video of one persons colony, as an example


What you guys think? Would anyone be interested to see AntsCanada keep a colony of termites? Even though its an Ant channel, termites are really similar despite them not being related to ants at all. And a lot of people don't know how easy (sometimes there is challenges, but its a lot more laid back than ants)it is to keep termites.
I though that exact same thing! And did you know that termite workers are both male and female? They also have a king and queen! And if either the king or queen dies, a worker can grow into a queen/king to replace it! Workers can also grow into soldiers and elates too! And it would be amazing if AntsCanada kept bees too!

For sure! He listens to his fans and we voted for them to stay. It should be easy for Mikey to start a colony with a breeding pair.. And, about time too.. There are some AMAZING termites in the Philippines!!! Does anybody know the genus and species of those termites???
