Substrate vibration during recruitment in ant social organization

Substrate vibration during recruitment in ant social organization

Insectes Sociaux 35(3): 241-250

The occurrence of stridulation during recruitment of nestmates to food sources, already assumed from behavioural evidence in the literature for other ant species, has been recorded for the first time in Messor capitatus (Latreille). Stridulation occurs at the feeding site. It may also occur during the "waggle" display in the nest, but this cannot be certainly confirmed or denied. This represents the second context in which stridulatory behavior occurs among worker ants, and, as in the previously known case.sbd.underground alarm.sbd.the sounds produced by the sender appear to be perceived as substrate vibrations. Stridulation inability does not prevent ants from recruiting to food sources. Artificially silenced ant colonies recruit to feeding sites at 70 cm distance with some 5-10 min delay relative to controls. Such a delay, under natural conditions and with intercolony competition might imply the loss of 2-3 meters utilized space or more, according to the ants' walking speed which is, in turn, temperature dependent.
