ABSTRACT
Ant, a small insect. Ants are noted for the complex societies in which most of them live. They are often cited as symbols of thrift and industry, because many species seem tireless in their activity and store large quantities of food. The study of ants has appealed to naturalists since ancient times. Children often keep ant colonies to observe their activities. Ants are found in nearly all parts of the world except the polar regions.
