Nanitic Poster


na·nit·ic: "The first brood of worker ants produced by a queen ant using only the reserved nutrition in her body. Nanitics shoulder the initial fate of the colony and are often underfed due to the conditions in colony building. Thus, nanitics may be smaller in size from later worker ants to optimize the survival of the group..." — But what happens to the colony when the queen dies? Had the nanitics done enough?
