Ants are social insects that typically live in underground colonies, made up of workers and a queen. Ants eat practically any food but are especially attracted to sweets. Ant identification is relatively simple due to their three distinct body regions: head, thorax, and abdomen, as well as antennae. Despite similar construction, ants vary in overall appearance. Small or large ants and brown or black ants are common nicknames for different species.
