As many of you might know Formica Fusca is NOT found in North America. The once believed Formica Fusca of North America is actually not related to the Formica Fusca in other parts of the world. A friend (on Formiculture) recently told me that myrmecologists did a DNA test to see if the "Formica Fusca" here is related to those in different parts of the world and turns out it's not. So from here on out we shall refer to Formica Fusca as Formica Subaenescens (I know its a little hard to say) here in North America. Thank you for reading this and I know a lot of will still refer to Formica Fusca instead but try not too.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.
