Abstract

The foragers of Myrmicaria brunnea (Saunders, 1842) can rapidly find and relocate their food than other ants in their vicinity. To find out the social organization of forager recruitment and food retrieving in Myrmicaria brunnea is the important component in this study. Myrmicaria brunnea shows a surprizing foraging behaviour that makes them unique from others. However, this sort of communication has not been present in the foragers of Brachyponera luteipes (Mayr, 1862).
