Ants are found practically anywhere on land . They have 6 legs ,feelers and transparent wings. Ants live together in a colony and work as an army to feed and defend their homes. They are also very industrious because they are always running around with a job to do. The Queens job is to lay eggs so that there will be more workers and defenders for there colony. In mid summers to the end of Autumn, swarming males and females go on a nuptial flight. Eventually some of the fertilised females drop to the ground. The males die. The females spread there wings and the survivors search out and establish a new colony.
