Young queens of the harvesting ant Messor semirufus avoid founding in places visited by conspecific workers


Insectes Sociaux, 391: 113-115
Young queens of the harvesting ant Messor semirufus avoid founding in places visited by conspecific workers
In field experiments in Corsica in 1991, founding queens of Messor semirufus were offered a choice between 2 areas: 1 just visited and 1 not visited by workers of the same species. The queens preferred to dig their nests in the area not marker by workers.
