Excerpt: Interactions between Pheidole megacephala and Linepithema humile in Hawaii

Some people are probably aware of the continuing battle for supremacy between some invasive ants like Pheidole megacephala and Linepithema in various parts of the world. I came upon this interesting paper by Entomologist Sam Fluker that studied the interactions between these two species in detail in Hawaii. Here's an excerpt from that paper with some notes on such interactions:

Nice read. So basically keep my pheidole colony as far away from my other colonies as possible.
Keeping:
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula
