The Ant, family Formicidae, order Hymenoptera
Who rules the world? Ants of course! At the United Titanium Bug Zoo we have ant colonies. If you have a keen eye, you can spot the queen. As social insects, ants all work as a team caring for the brood to ensure a healthy colony. Ants are also farmers! They tend to aphids to increase their production of “honeydew,” which is the excretions of the aphids.
