Life habits of ants.

Food habits of ants

Ants are categorized by their feeding habits as follows: lower species, carnivorous, feeding on insects, small animals and even large sick and dead animals; odorous ant subspecies, higher species of leaf-cutting ant subspecies and ant subspecies can feed on animals and plants, especially honeydew secreted by aphids and scale insects; most other ants are herbivorous, mostly withered leaves. They feed on seeds, fruits, branches and trunks.

It can be fed with rice bran, wheat bran, beans, sugar, melons and fruits, animal feed such as fish meal, silkworm pupae, bone, eggs, dead and living insects, chicken feed or self-made feed.

Physiological Habits of Ants

1. Ants can grow normally within 15-40 C, but the optimum temperature is between 25-35 C. Hibernation occurs in winter when the temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius.

2. The soil moisture of ants should be controlled between 10% and 20%, and the relative humidity of air should be controlled between 70% and 90%.

3. Ants are social insects that live in groups and have strong nest-loving nature. Most species nest underground, and eat a variety of food, generally both plant and meat. Like other ants, Polyrhachis nigra usually has a nest as a family. There are one or dozens queens in a nest. The worker ant specializes in nesting, foraging and nursery, with the largest number; the soldier ant protects the safety of the masses, with a small number.

Reproductive Habits of Ants

The reproductive process of ants is generally divided into three parts: mating, oviposition and nesting. When a nest of ants reaches a certain number, the queen breeds males and females ahead of time. When the time is ripe, females fly out of the nest to mate and establish their own nest and begin to breed their offspring into a new family. Ants are completely metamorphic insects. Complete metamorphosis is a process from egg to adult through larval and pupal stages.
