Do ants follow an invisible line?

Topics: AnimalsAnts, Insects, Science


Cathy Bracy

Yes. Ants actually follow an invisible line. As they walk the ants leave behind a scent that they use to trace their way back to their nests just as in the fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, the children left a trail of pebbles to find their way home from the jungle. The scent that the ants leave behind is called pheromone. The ants walk in a line because they follow the scent left behind by the leader.
