One of the most little known species of ants in North America is the leaf-cutter ant. This is mainly because it lives in tropical environments and it is not aggressive to animals or humans if not disturbed. The leaf cutting ant is a social insect. Alone the ant is virtually helpless but with the colony it can be a thing feared by animal and human alike.
Pheidole Megacephala are commonly found in cool to warm enviroments, such as subtropical and tropical regions. Regions such as southern parts of North America, Central America, Africa, and Islands of the Americas. In their colony, it is consisted minor workers, fighters, soliders, and obviously the queen.

One of those circle-of-life kind of things. Now, let me tell you how things are supposed to work. The sun grows the food. The ants pick the food. The grasshoppers eat the food. (A Bug’s Life, 1998)” a quote from the ring leader of the grasshoppers, Hopper, in the film A Bug’s Life (November 1998). John Lasseter’s Disney production was released in November of 1998 where it gave an overview of the world of ants and their everyday struggles. When it comes to ants, you think about their teamwork and strategic tasks; never would anyone think that any type of unethical actions were

NPR published an article about the termite-hunting ants Megaponera analis on April 12th, and I decided to compare how well their piece summarized the original scientific journal’s findings. Through reading both articles I have come to the conclusion that NPR summary of the scientific journal is quite vague. The entirety of the NPR article had very little information about the scientific journals findings. In my opinion there were more deficits in this article rather than benefits that showed the true scope of the study. I understand that it is aimed at an audience much different that the scientific journal but I still believe it is far too simplistic. However, there were a few benefits that helped to capture the original research journals findings.
The way in which Hindu concepts develop in Sujatha Gidla’s Ants Among Elephants vary drastically, as expected, from the development of Hindu concepts in the United States. Rather than documenting the development of Hindu traditions outside of a Hindu-majority country, Gidla relates stories of growing up Christian in overwhelmingly Hindu India. Ants documents the stories and lives of many of Gidla’s family members, focusing predominantly on her mother and uncles, who were communist revolutionaries and low-caste, “untouchable” Christians in India during the early and mid-20th century.
Fire Ants. The only kind of weather that can have a significant effect on fire ant populations is freezing weather that drops below 10 degrees Fahrenheit - for at least two weeks. Since we aren’t likely to see that in San Antonio, you can be sure that fire
Being such an organized society with unique behaviors, honey bees plan their survival through the winter months when the flowers are dead and the cold temperatures make outside trips a rare occasion. All throughout the year, worker bees produce honey and store it in honeycombs made of wax. This honey is not just a delicious substance humans enjoy, but rather a food source stored for the larvae and adult honeybees to snack on during the chilly months. Packed full of carbohydrates, honey gives vital energy to the bees when they can’t forage and must maintain a high hive temperature. (The importance of honey, n.d.). Honey bees, being exothermic insects, have to seek outside sources to keep their body heated. In cold weather, all the bees come

Black carpenter ants have many things about them that a lot of people never knew and still do not know. Black carpenter ants are almost like people back in the 90s. I say this because they had servants, slavery, and they even go to war. Carpenter ants do all of this, but no one notices it and probably will not notice it ever unless the do research. I am glad I got to learn about the carpenter ant. I will definitely try and notice the little characteristics and little things they do from take food to protecting their
Ants and lacewing larva have developed unique mouth parts well adapted to their environment. The mandibles of ants are not only for eating but act like a pair of hands allowing them to serve several different functions. Ants use their mandibles like scissors to cut leaves or twigs, hands to carry materials, weapons to defend themselves, like shovels to dig with and finally are used to eat with. The ability of ants to use their mandible for such a broad range of activities has given them a competitive advantage and allowed them to thrive in numerous types of environments.
Meat ants, also known as gravel ants, live in Australia. They can be found in the biome of Deciduous Forest. Some meat ant colonies are even found in urban areas. These ants usually build their nests in sandy/gravelly places. Their nests are
Ants are creatures we encounter in our lives daily, yet we don’t pay them attention and ignore, and sometimes what is worse, we kill them thoughtlessly. What we need to realise is that ants have a whole world of their own—a world that can be much more fascinating than ours.
Introduction Mimicry in the insect world involves models and mimics. The mimic bears a convincing resemblance to its model – usually an insect avoided by its prey - and uses this trick to its advantage, in order to survive. Genetically modified food employs a similar technique as it mimics a naturally evolved organism; but that is where the similarity ends. Unfortunately, in the world of GM food, it is almost impossible to differentiate between the original and the mimic.
