EAVESDROPPING ON COLONIES OF THE BLACK IMPORTED FIRE ANT, SOLENOPSIS RICHTERI
Black imported fire ants, Solenopsis richteri
, introduced to the United States in 1918, are less widespread.
Studies of a hybrid zone formed between two introduced fire ants, Solenopsis invicta and Solenopsis richteri
, in the United States hold promise for addressing some of these issues because the history of formation of the zone is known, the reproductive and dispersal biology of these species is well understood, and information on the population and molecular genetics of these ants is increasing (Markin et al.
Two imported species of the fire ant (Figure 2) have been introduced into the United States: the black imported fire ant, Solenopsis richteri
(native to Argentina and Uruguay), and the red imported fire ant, Solenopsis invicta (native to Paraguay and Brazil).
Predatory behavior exhibited by three species of ants on the imported fire ants: Solenopsis invicta Buren and Solenopsis richteri
In South America, this species is known to attack both red and black fire ants (i.e.; Solenopsis invicta Buren and Solenopsis richteri
Forel) and probably Solenopsis saevissima F.
