    my auntie said antz are very advanced in technology.
    they can transport themselves anywhere they wanted to.
    they give a command to spock : beam me down to sweetiepie cabinet top.
    here a picture of the transporter they used.

    It is because the first ant u saw is a different ant from the second ant u saw.The second ant u saw is a different ant u saw from the cabinet.
    The cabinet ant u saw is a different ant u saw on table.

    Scout Ants. Kill them but leave their body there. When they die, they release a chemical warning other ants. So, always kill scout ants but leave their carcass there...杀鸡儆猴。。。It's like in this forum. Kill the Chicken and Warn the Monkey...Lol :D:D:D

    Ants have extremely little direct ant to ant communication aside from checking if ants actually belong to the same colony. (which is more of a one sided check than a two sided conversation) Here's a quick and dirty explanation of how ant colonies manage to do complex decision making and logicists with very uncomplicated minds:

    • Ant A is a scout. Ant A leaves the nest with all the other scouts and embarks on a solo semi random search pattern.
    • Ant A finds a food source! Ant A takes a chunk of food and makes a beeline back to the nest, laying down a scent trail from the food to the colony.
    • Ant B is also a scout, during his semi random scout pattern he finds the fresh scent trail that ant A laid down. Ant B now has a decision to make. He could go and check out what ant A found, or he could continue his semi random search pattern. At the moment the trail is relatively weak, let's call it a 50/50 decision. For the sake of argument ant B goes to find the food source.
    • Ant B finds the food, takes a chunk and heads back to the colony, also laying down a scent trail. Ant B's scent trail reinforces the scent trail already laid down by ant A.
    • Ant C is also a scout. Ant C finds the scent trail laid down by ant A and reinforced by ant B. Ant C has to make the same decision as ant B but this time the scent trail is a little stronger and it's no longer a 50/50 decision for ant C. To stronger scent trail is more interesting and more likely to attract ant C. For the sake of argument, ant C follows the trail towards the food.
    • The food is still there! Ant A must have found something big. Ant C takes a chunk, heads back to the colony and reinforces the scent trail.
    • By now the scent trail has been reinforced several times by ants A, B, C and any other ants that followed the trail. In fact the trail keeps getting stronger as it's more likely to entice ants to follow it to the food and head back while reinforcing the trail.
    • This keeps going until the food is gone. Some ants will still find the trail, but since the food at the end of the trail is gone, none will head back to the nest while reinforcing the trail.
    • The scent trail will decay fairly quickly and eventually disappear.
    • What the ants achieved here is a complex solution to a logistical problem without any direct ant to ant communication or higher up management. Individual ants know how to lay down a trail, and know how to respond to finding a trail. But they don't have to understand management, communication or logistics. The trail system means man (ant) power will continue to be applied until no longer necesary. Large food finds will attract many ants for transport while small sources will be gone before a sufficiently strong scent trail is created to attract many ants. Thus avoiding any time wasting.
    This is what is called a hive mind. A system that can reach decisions and solutions that are beyond the minds of it's individual components.

    So in short no, ants will not actively go looking for missing members. There simply aren't any ants keeping track of the big picture. It's just a lot of individual ants, doing individual jobs but working with a system that produces a fantastic group effort without them knowing it. Ants have many such behaviors that have little or no group awareness but huge coordinated efforts when performed by many ants.

    I have this problems too, until I found out something, after I took time, following their trails. When you have ants, appearing out of nowhere & then everywhere..even you killed quite many, even by spraying insecticide or try all sorts of killing methods, they still appear!!.

    They have a nest or nests nearby, find that & destroy it...the problem will be gone.
