  • Description or summary of the book: Excerpt from The Argentine Ant The Argentine ant (iridomyrmex humilis Mayr), which is made the subject Of the present paper, is the first among the Formicidas to attain the front rank among injurious insects in the United States. In its field the Argentine ant is not excelled in destructiveness by even the gipsy moth, the boll weevil, or the San Jose scale. Though this ant is limited as yet to comparatively small areas, the Observations and experience of the authors fully convince them that future years will see this insect steadily invading new territory and forcing its depre dations upon the inhabitants Of all southern California and most of the Gulf States. The present paper aims to present, in as concise a manner as possi ble, the principal results of five years Of almost constant Observa tion and experiment by the senior author at Baton Rouge, La. And in the orange - growing section of the same State, together with Observa tions made by the junior author at New Orleans in connection with his investigations Of sugar-cane insects. The junior author has prepared in their entirety the portions deal ing with the Area of ultimate infestation, and the Relation Of the ant to Coccidae and Aphididae, and to him is also to be credited the important discovery that mating Of the queens may occur within the formicary or nest of the colony. The remainder Of the paper, except where otherwise noted, is compiled from the notes and records Of the senior author.
