Ants

Ants

insects of the family formicidae, very common and widespread, probably the most successful of all the insect groups. All ants are social insects, and most colonies contain three castes, queens, males, and workers. Their habits are often very elaborate and a great many studies have been made of ant behaviour. Ants produce a number of secretions that function in offense, defense, and communication.
