Hail Ants


“One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. I for one welcome our new ant overlords. I’d like to remind them as a trusted TV personality blogger, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.”

Obvious, I do realize.

  1. The odd thing is that we’ve known about this for years, and (IIRC), the Spanish super-colony has been covered by the BBC in the past too.

    Apparently someone went back to Argentina a few years ago to look at the colonies there, and found a mix of supercolony behaviour and more normal behaviour. The explanation for this was that free-loaders eventually evolve in supercolonies, and that causes the supercolony to collapse. And then it evolves elsewhere, and collapses etc. etc.
