Incredible: Over A Million Army Ants Work Together To Build A Bridge In Order To Attack A Giant Wasp Nest!

And here I thought Ant-man is in good terms with the Wasp.

 

 

Footage captures the moment a million army ants worked together to build a bridge designed to help invade a giant wasp nest. The highly-organised ants were captured on camera in Brazil by electrical engineer, Francisco Boni.

The Brazilian wrote on Twitter: “Attack of legionary ants (also known as army ants or marabunta) to a wasp honeycomb. Impressive the level of swarm intelligence and collective computation to form that bridge.”

The footage has since been viewed almost 200,000 times. It has gained thousands of retweets and likes.

He added: “When this type of attack happens, the wasps usually escape and the ants do not leave until they’ve completely looted the honeycomb, carrying pupae, larvae, and eggs, as well as some adults who did not manage to escape.
