Not mighty in size, but mighty in resourcefulness and industry, the ant has crawled the earth since prehistoric times. It has dwelt in rain-forest tree trunks and acorns of oak trees, beneath logs, and under sidewalks. It has protected forests by capturing insects, cleared weeds away from acacia trees, and by growing gardens has released important nutrients into the soil. Seed-lifters, dirt-diggers, social beings, ants have the most advanced brain of all insects! So watch where you step, especially on a warm day: a small but mighty ant may be underfoot.

This book is about ants and one of the things I learned when some ants are trapped in a cave in they rub the joint between their waist and abdomen to produce a squeaky sound that other ants can hear through their legs. by michael
