Ant Wars
Ant Wars 1 x 60'
Using incredible microscopic filming techniques, we investigate the story of a tiny invader on its inexorable rise to power – the Argentine Ant. The ant is minute, but that doesn’t prevent it being hugely invasive. Already, the ants have formed the largest super-colony on the planet, over nearly 6,000km from northern Italy to Portugal, through France and Spain.

The colonies consist of billions of ants which together form a giant organic structure, quite unparalleled in the natural world. Researchers are studying their predatory strategies at the expense of local species of ants, as well as their ability to modify existing ecosystems. Is it possible to stop their advance towards the north? Scientists have serious doubts.
