Leafcutting Ants are social insects that live in large groups called "colony colonies" in dry, desert regions. A colony is a social structure characterized by a queen and male workers with offspring by another pair of queens. The worker ants are called caste persons, which are responsible for moving worker ants from one location to another. The workers have small yellow heads and large red body parts which are used as a source of food, protection, and nest materials. These red body parts also provide heat to the colony members who may need to work outside in extremely cold environments. One species of leaf-cutting ant called Diflubenzuron belongs to the Scoloponda genus. Other members of this insect family are Dicentrocephala, Scolimis scoliora, Diplocarpon amberencium, Diplocarpon polybracte, Diplocarpon rosae, and Diplocarpon varicose. While the most well-known members of this insect family are the larger species like the ant found in California, there are smaller species that may be found around the world. These ants are known to be active during the day but are best observed at night when they travel around looking for food. They often feed near water and look for plant parts, although they also search for other food sources like fruit and nectar. Diflubenzuron is a member of the carbohydrate group of insects, which belong to the Orthoptera insect family. There are about 500 known species of carbohydrate-feeding insects. Leaf-cutting ant species are known to eat various forms of plant materials like grasses, fruits, leaf stems, and seeds. These include alfalfa, cabbage, carrot, melon, peppermint, tomato, sandworm, strawberry, and wheat. These plant materials are consumed either alone or mixed with juices from the plants they are consumed on. Some leaf-cutting ant species are even known to use plant stems as their nests. Most leaf-cutting ants do not consume plant material directly but rather use tree branches or twigs as a place to rest and breed. This process, called root division, is why the insects are sometimes referred to as root diggers. The term "ant" in conjunction with "cerebrospinal" refers to a family of insects that contains these types of social insects. This family includes leafcutter ants, which live in fields and woodlands, ground beetles, ants that eat soil, and subterranean ants. The term "de-entomologized" means that the reproductive process has been artificially prevented. This is why you can find de-entomologized ants in the wild, where natural pest control methods have not been used in the place. Acromyrmex: This ant species is known by the common name, "ground spider", which is derived from its shape, which resembles that of the ground spider's body. These creatures are found around houses and other buildings, along the roads and highways, and also in gardens. The fowler ants are smaller than other leaf-cutting ants, reaching up to 2.5 millimeters in length. They are very sensitive to light and, being nocturnal, move around quickly when the light level declines. The term "zanunctomy" in connection with the above-described species is commonly used to describe the removal of the wings, called metatarsal, by leaf-cutting ants. The metatarsals are present on the first three abdominal segments and form a base for the mandibles. The worker caste, which is composed of several species, feeds off the remains of fallen leaves and buds. Other members of this caste produce waste materials from the juices secreted from the exoskeletons. The colony's kings and queens are responsible for defending the colony against external predators, especially ants.
