Ants are incredibly strong for their size! It is interesting to watch them move small stones and pieces of soil from the tunnels of their underground nests. Ants are in the order Hymenoptera, meaning "membrane-winged", and are related to bees and wasps. Like their relatives, the females are the workers and they can sting. The queen in the colony is the only reproductive member, she lays all the eggs, her daughters do all the work. The males, called drones, have one purpose in life (one can guess what that is!), once that "job" has been fulfilled, he dies. Sorry guys!
