THE AMAZING HONEYPOT ANT


Ants are amazing. This is a honeypot ant that is used to store food without spoiling and to feed ants that do not leave the nest. The video below has some extraneous footage but is the best description I could find.

FUN BOOK ON WHY WE NEED INSECTS

"In Buzz, Sting, Bite: Why We Need Insects (Simon & Schuster, 2019), Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson comes to the defense of the "tiny critters that all do their little bit to save your life, every single day." A professor of conservation biology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Sverdrup-Thygeson is a lively, witty, and discerning guide through the scientific lore surrounding some of the tiniest—though still very powerful—organisms on Earth."
