Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

Пре годину

Sources: sites.google.com/view/sources-argentine-ants
In nearly every corner of the Earth, ants wage war against each other. Their weapons are what nature gave them. Some have strong armour, deadly stingers or sharp mandibles. And then there is this tiny, and not very impressive ant. But it rules the biggest empire any ant has ever built. A colony spanning continents and fighting wars that leave millions of casualties. Let’s take a look at this unlikely warrioress: Linepithema humile, the Argentine ant.

Are those imported red fire ants those giant ants that sting like hell and take several stomps to kill? I’ve seen a few, we call them cow killers [edit: no, what I’m thinking of is called a Red Velvet Ant, which is actually a wasp but the females are wingless so they look like freaking massive ants]

Huh, I wonder what would happen if we imported *more* queens to try and establish more genetic diversity. Maybe it’d just make it worse, but maybe it’d make enough infighting that they’d get slowed down.
