Ants nest in a variety of ways:

 [Small nest in leaf litter] [Nest in a stick]

Prenolepis imparis nest cast


Some species of ants make large nests that go deep underground and have many rooms. The rooms are used for different purposes such as food storage and caring for larvae. This is a plaster cast of a Prenolepis imparis nest made by Dr. Walter Tschinkel at Florida State University.
