Ants are insects with slender waists and elbowed antennae. Ant is social, showing a very high level of social organization wherein a single female produces offspring, and the non-reproductive individuals of social care for the young ones in the colonies. The ants are believed to have evolved 140 million years ago from the wasps and consist of more than 22,000 species, out of which 12500 have been yet classified.

Ants are found everywhere except Antarctica, mainly because of their social organization and ability to adapt to their environment. It is interesting to note that ants live in colonies, and each territory is a house to half a million ants comprising queens(living up to 15 years) and worker ants (living up to 7 years).


Life Cycle of Ants


Eggs, larvae, pupas, and adults are the four stages of an ant’s life cycle. The life cycle of an ant takes 6 to 10 weeks to complete. Fertilized eggs produce female ants like queens, workers, or soldier ants, while unfertilized eggs produce male ants. An ants egg is tiny, oval, and generally, 1mm long, while a queen’s egg is more significant than 1mm. The larva of ants have no eyes and legs and shed their skin many times to increase their size. After reaching a particular size, they start spinning a silk-like cocoon around themselves and undergo metamorphosis to become adult ants. An adult and either becomes a queen or a worker. Some queens live over 15 years, and some workers up to 7 years.
