Messor Ants moving Larvae to a New Nest

Moving the nest -- carrying larvae

Messors move their nest frequently, up to ten times a year. [MJF Brown, Insectes Sociaux 46(1999) 66-70] The queen will follow once the new nest is ready. The distance they are moving, across Road F, is shown on page 4. [p 9]
