Abstract

Regurgitation is important in the feeding behaviour of ants. Iodine131 in honey-water-solution was fed to colonies of Camponotus herculeanus. A scintillation counter was used to determine the nest area, i.e. that which was radioactive following regurgitation. This apparatus gave the most consistent results with different woods. The nest area of a single colony was found to include several trunks, and covered a much larger area than the external damage revealed.
