Western Harvester Ant

I think this is a Western Harvester Ant mound. Notice how the ants have completely eaten everything with in this 6 foot radius of the ant mound.


  1. Hi Larry, just catching up on your pictures. I like this one. Ants are interesting little creatures. I will have to google this particular one, I'm not familiar with it.
    The weather here is turning. We have had some really sunny and warm weather up until now. Have a good trip!

  2. Desert ants are amazing! I wonder how large the radius can get. We've seen ants so big in Arizona that they actually cast a shadow.
    Shannon's right -- the weather here has changed, at least for today. You may want to plan for an "anything goes" weekend! Hope it's a good one for you.
