How do ants communicate?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ants communicate by the use of pheremones. They use food trail pheremones to route other ants to food sources. These food pheremones may persist for days. This is how ants quickly find food left on the ground. They also use alarm pheremones to alert other ants of danger along a certain route. This pheremone is released when ants are killed.

    Ants communicate using their senses of smell and touch through their antennae.  They release pheromones to convey certain messages like “follow me” or “there’s food” and recognize fellow colony members by the colony-unique smell each member carries.
