ant

any insect of the family Formicidae of the order Hymenoptera, characterized by a narrow abdominal construction. All ants are colonial and each colony may contain several castes (specialized individuals). The queen is the only egg-laying individual, fertilization taking place during a nuptial flight involving several colonies. The queen then sheds her wings and starts a colony in which workers are wingless. Social activities include the tending and milking of APHIDS. See Fig. 37 .
