Good morning.
This is how the fire ants survive flooding. When we had torrential rains awhile back, you would find big balls of these ants floating everywhere. In ditches or the lake.
They were the one insect that didn't diminish in numbers that year.
Amazing and interesting video.
I didn't know they would exhibit the same behavior dry.
