How Ants Farm & Actively Guard Scale

This video shows how ants farm the scale & actively guard them, however they are adding an extra layer of protection here.

You’ll notice these ants have built some mud/dirt areas and when you push some of this away you’ll see some pink scale. Not only are the ants protecting the scale by their sheer numbers but they are also building these little dirt coverings to further protect them.
