    Default The way of communication

    ID: Weaver ants

    One of the most common and ferocious insects that can be seen in any of the backyard, these weaver ants are known for roaming around and being busy picking up the wastes or food items to be filled up in the houses built by stitching/weaving several leaves together. While communication is said to be the key aspect for any team, these ants showcase best practices to communicate with others in the way of touch or pheromones. If it detects any intruder near its nest, the soldiers tend to come out with the most aggressive attitude to wade off the danger, even going to the extent of biting it off.

    Nice to see these tiny insects so closely. Wish they were on a plant or other natural surface . The two seem to passing some food, they normally communicate this way. I think the AF point is locked on the pipe, please check. Thanks for sharing.

    These ants are pretty fast as well. They can carry several times their bodyweight. I agree that the pipe with some text is a bit distracting. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
