hey I am studying about ant and I don't know how the slave making ant work please help
Slave-making ants raid other ant colonies often of a specific species. In these raids the attacking ants take the eggs,larvae and pupae. They tend to eat the eggs and larvae and carry the pupae back to the nest where they'll eclose and work for the slave-making ants.
Ant-keeper going into his 4th year of loving ants!
some also might consider social parasites to be slave making ants as well because the queens infiltrate another colony kill the queen and use the workers to raise her own species of workers
