Abstract

On any spring day across North America, you may hear radio commercials for pest control companies promising an end to the invasion of "Big Black Ants." The entomologists among us will recognize this "plague" as the seasonal return of carpenter ants, although the homeowner facing scores of large ants foraging in his home will care little of the taxonomy of Formicidae.
