DISTRIBUIÇÃO DE SUBSTRATOS NAS COLÔNIAS DE Atta laevigata (F. Smith, 1858) (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE)

Abstract: Estudou-se a distribuição de substratos em duas colônias adultas (L-1 e L-2) da saúva Atta laevigata (F. Smith, 1858), com áreas de terra solta de 26,10 e 31,30 m2. Alguns orifícios de abastecimento foram mapeados utilizando-se iscas de canudinhos plásticos impregnados com polpa cítrica. Depois selecionou-se três orifícios para o ninho L-1 e um orifício para o ninho L-2, onde foram colocadas iscas cítricas impregnadas com corantes azul, amarelo e vermelho e amarelo misturado com grãos de milho, respectivamente… Show more

“…Similar results were found by Mariconi et al (1981) for several leaf‐cutting ant species using radioactive‐isotope‐marked baits. Forti and Silveira Neto (1989), Moreira and Forti (1999), and Pretto and Forti (2000) also achieved similar results for A. capiguara , A. laevigata and A. sexdens , respectively. Loeck and Nakano (1982), who investigated 44 fungus chambers in a nest of A. sexdens , observed non‐uniform substrate distribution, being predominantly sectorial; this differed from our data.…”

“…Conversely, Pretto and Forti (2000) showed that toxic baits were uniformly distributed for such species. Moreira and Forti (1999) had similar results when observing nests of Atta laevigata .…”
