Mini video of birds in the garden today filmed through the kitchen window.
The ant pupae are as large or even larger than worker ants. The pupae could become worker ants and need the worker ants to take care of them.
Minor worker ants, are the most common ant found in any colony. These sterile female ants are the smallest ant, but they do the most work. These worker ants are maintaining the nest under the ground, the ants normally grow up in the dark, moist and moderate temperatures.
The worker ants can live between a few months and up to five years. In mature ant colonies, queens can lay thousand of eggs each day!
