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


, : Young queens of the harvesting ant Messor semirufus avoid founding in places visited by conspecific workers. Insectes Sociaux, 391: 113-115

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.

The results of laboratory experiments carried out with both monogynous and artificially polygynous Messor barbarus ant colonies (which under natural conditions are always monogynous) have shown that the workers belonging to monogynous colonies wer...

After mating, females dealate on the ground and search for a p...
