Identifying Florida Ants

Updated: Jul 2, 2020

There are around 10 different kinds of ants found in Florida, many of whom are living in our very own backyards. A way to identify the different species is to attract them with different kinds of food.

By participating in the Citizen Science project (http://studentsdiscover.org/lesson/ant-picnic/), you can see first-hand how tiny, wild and diverse your backyard really is.
