The Facts About Ants

Facts about ants
One of the facts about ants is that they are social insects that live in large colonies or groups. Some colonies consist of millions and millions of ants. Don’t think that ants are not able to communicate with each other, they can. Among other things they can give directions (to where the food is) and alarm each other when there is cause. Ants are clean and tidy insects. Some worker ants are given the job of cleaning out the nest and taking the garbage and putting it outside in a special rubbish dump!
Another fact about ants is that they are of extreme importance in the insect world. They have complex and often obligatory relationships with the plant and insect kingdom, which depend on the ants for their well being.
Ants are most numerous in warm climate regions, but they live almost everywhere on land except for extremely cold locations. Ants have many different ways of life. Ants are often found on plants in and around homes. Ants and aphids work hand and hand, many assume the ants are eating the aphids; instead, the ants are actually tending the aphids, protecting them from predators.
Another fact about ants is that individual ants will not survive outside their colony for very long, but if their escape route is not sealed the ants may establish a food route back into the colony. It is not uncommon to find any ant willing to give his life for the good of the colony.
