ANTS BUILD HANGING BRIDGE TO ATTACK WASP NEST

posted by Mark Robertson - 

Isn't Mother Nature amazing? Some astonishing video has captured the moment a million army ants worked together to build a bridge designed to help invade a giant wasp nest. The highly organized ants were captured on camera in Brazil by an electrical engineer. Francisco Boni wrote on Twitter: “Attack of legionary ants (also known as army ants or marabunta) to a wasp honeycomb. Impressive the level of swarm intelligence and collective computation to form that bridge.” He added: “When this type of attack happens, the wasps usually escape and the ants do not leave until they’ve completely looted the honeycomb, carrying pupae, larvae and eggs, as well as some adults who did not manage to escape. They can even build across the water!” “Legionary ants” is a term that covers over 200 ant species.
