Ants are found practically anywhere on land. They have 6 legs ,feelers and transparent wings. Ants also live together in colonies and as a army to feed and defend their homes. The queens job is to lay eggs so that they can have more workers and defenders for their colony. From mid Summer to the end of Autumn swarming males and females go on a nuptial flight. The females shed their wings and the survivor's search out and establish a new colony.
