Within ant colonies, each ant is has specific job. One of the more popular jobs is to find food. These scouts scavenge for food and water. If a small amount of nourishment is found, a few carry the bounty back to the colony. If they find a path into a 5 lbs. bag of sugar, they’re bringing the colony to the treasure in your pantry.
