This may be an extremely sensitive subject, but I am wondering. Has anybody ever used their ants to fight off other ants to see how they behaved? I am asking because I had a tube that I was going to use to transfer a colony to my plaster nest, but a small colony Argentine ants has settled a satellite nest in the tube when I left it in the garage on a windowsill. It consists of a few workers and brood and 2 queens. I also have about 8 small colonies of S. invicta (I don't plan on keeping them all). One colony has about the same number of ants from the Argentine and I was thinking of connecting the tubes together to see what tactics they would use to triumph over the other colony. I don't have a camera, but I can describe what happened in as much detail as possible. If there are any rules or regulations about this then I'll just keep it to myself.
