Harvesters are still active

Even though it was cold enough to wear a jacket, the harvester ants were still active at the San Pedro River area.

This is the day after Thanksgiving.

Funny, the leafcutters were moving very slowly at much higher temperatures over a month before.

    Perhaps they move faster to keep it smooth/warm? Or they speed up because work has to get done before winter break. 😉

    Do colonies in AZ disappear during the cold weeks or months?

    Best wishes from Germany!
