EMPIRE OF ANTS

  • Of the 800 species in India, Bengaluru has more than 125 species with Lalbagh accounting for nearly 60
  • There are 11,931 species of ants the world over, varying in size from 40 mm to 1 mm. About 25 per cent of the total insect biomass of this world is made up of ants
  • Ants are a female-dominated society
  • Ants make best use of available resources.
  • They are now being recognised as ecological indicators like birds.
  • For instance, if you see ants nesting in leaf litter, it indicates the pristine and undisturbed nature of that forest.
  • Over millennia, ants have developed a close relationship with plants and animals. They pollinate and even disperse seeds
  • In the tropical forests of southern India, certain species of arboreal ants build a large nest, called the Pagoda nest by chewing leaves and mixing it with secretions from their salivary glands, on trees.
