The ants … an insect to be discovered

… in their nest the ants are organized like a real community: the QUEEN is the main character, her duty is to lay the eggs, the WORKER ANTS have different duties (find food, look after the queen, fix and expand the nest, etc ….) the “soldier” WORKER ANTS are those living on the Acervo. They are in charge for the defense from external attacks; their main weapon is the FORMIC acid, a strong poison which they spit against the enemy.

There are some birds who now about this behaviour and take advantage of it. These birds disturb the ants of the acervo so that they spit the poison against the birds. This powerful acid formic shower is free of charge!
