    The Lives of Ants Since time immemorial, human beings have been fascinated, amazed, intrigued, and captivated by ants.

Unlike butterflies, they don�t have wings with vivid colour patterns; they cannot boast the iridescent wing-cases seen on many beetles. Nor do they produce things which human beings like to eat or wear, such as honey or silk. They don�t even chirp or sing like crickets or cicadas; and, unlike bees, they never go in for dancing. They do, however, have other characteristics which, in their way, are much more remarkable.
