water ants in house
I came outside one morning to see this carpenter ant battle. Two colonies were fighting on three of the four sides of my house. Most of the fighting involved carpenter ants fighting one on one. In some of the videos I’m going to upload (there are 4 total) you can see other ants (dorymyrmex bureni) collecting the dead carpenter ants for food.

This battle lasted at least 48 hours though I only filmed during the most intensive parts. By the end there were hundreds of dead carpenter ants sprawled around the edges of my house.
