Pine Tree Ant Nest Midden

Jon Shattuck collected samples of the debris from a pine tree ant (Liometopum luctuosum) nest. The contents are variable and represent dead ants, both adults and larvae, and the food they have been collecting. The sample came from near a nest in a rarely visited guest house in the middle Camp Road area of Twain Harte, 7 March 2017.
