If you study nature itโ€™s anything but inefficient! Iโ€™m amazed at nature and how animals of all kinds survive and prosper. The hive mind is impressive in itselfโ€ฆlike small chemical signitures adapt behavoir.

Take rest bowens I know, i am just always shocked to see you all the time here, you passion and dedication is off the chart.
I alway wonder why? Helping others in such an extend is something and going beyond is* another, and going extreme is a different story all together :heart:

Death Spiral.

"When foraging for food, ants will follow pheromone scents left by the leader in order to maintain direction. However, on rare occurrences, the chemical trails may accidentally loop, causing what is known as a โ€œant death spiralโ€ or โ€œant millโ€ with the insects caught in an constant cycle of trotting around a circle.

Unfortunately for the ants, entering the movement is almost certain death, as the individuals will pace until exhaustion, with the process even lasting days long while the victims slowly succumb and pile up."

I still voted yes, but sometimes itโ€™s smarter to rebel.

I guess it depends on oneโ€™s definition of smart. Theyโ€™re pretty instinctual, but Iโ€™m not sure they have great problem solving abilities. I voted yes, because they are great foragers, but I wouldnโ€™t say theyโ€™re smart in the same way apes, pigs, or dolphins are.

Ants are smart enough to eat from the traps I set for them.
