Meet the female ant -also known as the worker ant. Each day she goes out to slay for her Queen! Usually the smallest in the colony..she can lift 20 times her body weight. She is a soldier, builder of ant hills and food provider. When she finds a good food supply, she leaves a scent for other workers to follow and refill until the food source is depleted. Hint: this is the formation you see as ants are traveling to and from your house!
