*** Honeypot Ant ***

11.09.2013 01:40 EDT
Honypot ant also called honeyant.Many insects,notably honey bees and some waspe,collect and store liquid for use at a later date.However,these insects store their food within their nest or in combs.Honey ants are unique in using their own bodies as living storage,but they have more function than just storing food.Some store liquids,body fat,and water from insect prey brought to them by worker ant.They can later serve as a food source for their fellow ants when food is otherwise scarce.Some worker ants turn into honeypots right from their emergence from pupa stage.The young ants stay in their abdomen.As their abdomen expand,the ants lose their mobility.
