Example text

We then work on sticking the edges of the leaf together, using the silk. Our nests can be very large, as we then begin connecting another leaf and then another. Sometimes our nests connect branches from two trees. Impressed? 39 We don’t damage the tree. In fact, we protect it since we stop other animals from coming to live in the tree or eating parts of it. We have many enemies that try to trick us, though. Some caterpillars produce sweet liquid called honeydew, which we love to eat. While we are distracted eating the honeydew, they crawl into the nest to eat our larvae.

43 Gripping tightly, we carry our victim between our long mandibles back to our nest. It can be seven times as heavy as us. The insect is chewed up and fed to the larvae. They are the meat-eaters. Our colony only has about a 1,000 ants, so we all work hard to find enough food. When the colony is small, even our queen takes care of the eggs and her larvae, and goes out of the nest to hunt. 44 45 We all protect our nest from attack. When we are annoyed we leap around. We also chase after invaders, such as spiders and cockroaches to scare them off and get them away from our nest.

Winged ants from other nests do this at the same time. 34 In great swarms, the queens mate with the male ants. Afterward, the male ants die and the queens find suitable damp homes for their new colonies. I’ll bet you’re hoping this will not be indoors! ❖ 35 Weaving wonders Hold on! Pull! Nearly there! Pull! We’re weaver ants and the most amazing thing about us is how we make our impressive treetop nests. Have you ever tried sewing together a bag? Well, you take a piece of material—in our case, that’s a leaf—and then fold it over, so that the edges can be sewn together.
