Non stop! Leaf cutter ants (Atta cephalotes)

The Sonoran Desert is a great place to watch ants! According to the Sonoran Desert Museum, Acromyrmex ants are related to the larger leaf-cutting ants of the tropical Americas. Acromyrmex versicolor is common in the Sonoran Desert. Its workers collect leaves and other plant parts to insert into fungus masses, which they grow in chambers deep within their underground nest. The fungus is completely dependent upon the ants for its care and propagation; the ants, in turn, eat a portion of the fungus as their sole source of solid food. Long columns of leaf-cutter ants search across the desert for plant matter for their fungus gardens when conditions permit in the fall and spring and on cool summer mornings; at other times, they remain underground. I was lucky enough to experience a hive excavation and to find queens preparing for their nuptial flight! We also collected representatives for the CSU museum of arthropod diversity! #ants #acromyrmex #acromyrmexversicolor #deserts #sonorandesert #arizonainsects #findyouradventure #entomology #insectcollecting #fungus #leafcutterants #leafcutting #leafcutter #desert #summerinarizona #formicidae

Hey y’all! Unfortunately my signal wasn’t the best in Guarujá, and the conference was super busy! After, I’ve been spending the past few days in São Paulo. This is a picture of a leafcutter I saw in Parque Ibirapuera. It’s been an amazing trip! Anyway, I’m still traveling for a few days. I’ll post more about the International Union for the Study of Social Insects 2018 meeting later πŸ™‚ Best, Joanie #leafcutter #leafcutterant #insect #askanentomologist #bugquestions #sciencecommunication #scicomm #parqueibirapuera #brasil #brazil #sãopaulo

Just saying hello! #leafcutter #leafcutterbee #bee #nestingbee
I was *obsessed* with leaf-cutter ants in the forests of Costa Rica. These industrious little creatures leave an out-sized mark on the landscape. Isaac and I watched every parade we ran into. πŸœπŸƒπŸœπŸƒπŸœπŸƒ July 2018 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· #costarica #puravida #puntarenas #leafcutterants #leafcutter #rainforest #parquenacionalcarara #parquenacional #cararanationalpark #sinac #hormigas #🐜 #πŸ‡¨πŸ‡· #tarcoles #fujifilm #fujixt10 #nopartofthisphotoisinfocus #pictureline
Do you see it? I spy a wool carder bee making its nest in our bee house today. Anthidium manicatum makes its nest in bee homes using hairs from lamb’s ear leaves and other plant fibers. #solitarybee #leafcutter #savethebees #pollinators #woolcarderbee
