TOP 10: Most Impressive Ants On The Planet
Cardiocondyla obscurior is a tropical ant species. Still, it lives at one place in the temperate climate Netherlands: in the tropical hothouses of the botanical garden in Leiden. It will not spread from there to the outside, which is too cold.
Recently, a new atlas about ant species in the Netherlands was published, called Ecologische atlas Nederlandse mieren (Hymenoptera: Formicidae). It shows where the various species live.
There are 68 native Dutch ant species; 29 of them are threatened. Eg, Camponotus vagus has only one nest in the Netherlands.
The black garden ant is the most common species in the Netherlands.
There are 36 invasive ant species in the Netherlands. Only seven of them live outside buildings; the others live only inside, where it is warmer.
