Western Thatching Ants

Swarming over a mound two feet high and three feet in diameter, these Western Thatching Ants (Formica obscuripes) are considered pests in most settings, but they also serve a beneficial purpose as they climb up valuable conifers and eat the destructive pine beetle larvae. The largest colonies can consist of over 200 mounds and over 50 million ants. Source: http://www.davidlouisquinn.com/pogolumina_OA_FobscuripesInfo.htm.
