Daggett purchases an ant farm and he's amazed to discover that all of the ants are white. Norbert tells him that he's actually bought a termite farm, which causes him to flip out and the glass container shatters, releasing the termites into their home. In fear, Daggett defects to the termite army, which leaves Norbert to save his dam and his brother by himself.
