What does an ant colony consist of?
Ants live in giant social colonies with one or more fertile females, known as the queen. There are also fertile males in the colony, referred to as drones. The colony as a whole consists of a division of labor, of sorts, and the ants communicate through the use of scented chemicals known as pheromones. These pheromones are detected by the ants highly sensitive antennae allowing the insects to communicate with each other.
