Category: Green Ant
Green Tree Ants are found in tropical Australia.
These ants form colonies with multiple nests in trees, each nest being made of leaves stitched together using the silk produced by the ant larvae.
Green Tree Ants are edible, bursting with a lemon flavouring which creates a uniquely foodie experience.
This nest was located in a tree that was felled in far north Queensland. Green Tree Ants are the nemesis of arborists in the north as the insects don’t like being disturbed and have a fierce bite.
