    What do ants look like?


    There are a number of ants in Kansas and Missouri area that come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes.  All ants have one thing in common. They have a caste of queens, workers and males.  The queen is the main ant in the colony. She is responsible for laying all eggs within the colony.  Workers are females without wings that gather food, feed the larvae and maintain the integrity of the nest. They also are on standby to defend the colony. However, they do not reproduce. Males take a back seat to all the ants. The male job is only to reproduce.
