Random Seed Identification in Video - June 17, 2018


Best Answer AntPhycho , August 1 2018 - 4:46 PM

Clearly they are of a Poaceae or grass, I can get you that far as to the exact species I would do a data search of grasses native to where the ants were found if it is a natural location to narrow down a possible species.  http://pss.uvm.edu/p...rassID_UWis.PDF, this link may help.

Thanks for helping, I have concluded that they are Kentucky Bluegrass seeds.

Yes I agree,  I wish I had the secret to your incredible V. Pergandei success. I have been decoding all of the seeds in your videos in hopes of replicating your results.  ;)
