We have some very special guests that have joined us at the Sirius Academy West Science department; our very own colony of Harvester ants!

Harvester ant is the common name for any of the species or genera of ants that collect seeds or mushrooms which are stored in the nest in communal chambers called granaries.

By viewing our special night vision webcam, you will be able to see our ants build and maintain their nest, serve their queen, lay their eggs and watch them flourish.

We hope that you enjoy keeping track of the progress that our ants are making!
