Diacamma rugosum is an Asian ant species which shows high activity outside the nest. They need a high amount of proteins for their brood. Insect are paralyzed and killed with their effective stinger. Humans often show local pain-reactions after they got stung by these ants. When they find a larger food source workers guide each other by tandemruns to the food source.
Diacamma rugosum are often termed queen less. But correctly it must be said that all newborn ants are ergatoid queens and become workers through amputation of their gemmae. These gemmae are special glands which enable the reproduction. After the old gamergate (ergatoid) has died newborn workers are able to mate and start egg production.
