The ants have many benefits to the environment and human beings. They are a whole kingdom that goes according to their plans with different male duties than females. According to “phys”, there are 6 facts that we should know about this kingdom.

Most of the ants you see are “female”

The ants have a class system, where the responsibilities are divided. The queen is the founder of the colony, and her role is laying eggs, and all female ants are responsible for the harmonious operation of the colony.

Male ants do not have a father

Unlike humans, with X and Y chromosomes, the sex of the ant is determined by the number of copies of the genome it owns. The male develops from non-fertilized eggs, so it does not receive any genomes from the father. This means that the male antlers have a father and can not have male children but have Grandparents, they can have grandchildren, the female ants develop from fertilized eggs and have two copies of the genome, one from her father and one from her mother.

Do not eat queens for weeks after mating

When the conditions are warm and moist, the winged virgin queens and males leave their nests in search of their mates and are mated on the wing. Then the queens fall on the ground and abandon their wings, while the males die quickly, and the mating queens choose a nest and a hole in the soil.

Queen ant can live for decades while males for a week

After the colony is established, the ants live for nearly 30 years, while the males do not live for more than a week.

Ants can help humans and the environment

Ants have a significant impact on ecosystems around the world and their roles are diverse. Others act as biological control agents. These species benefit ecosystems by dispersing seeds, pollinating plants and improving soil quality. They may also benefit our health as a potential source of new drugs such as antibiotics.
