He gets Into the salad and sandwiches- of picnickers, and isn't above. taking a nip of human flesh if he doesn't fine the sandwiches. But now U. S. forest service scientists have found that the red ant -is an effective . fire fighting machine in 'miniature, carrying his own fire extinguisher right along with Him in t'heshape"of"formic acid. Ants secret formic acid, and formic acid is the best little fire extinguisher known to science. Experimenters dropped lighted matches near ant hills and watched the result. At first, utter, panic seized the red hordes. They charged madly Into the hill, grabbed eggs in their manibles,. and raced" away with them, ignoring the fire in their determination to save their embryo young. Later, however, the ants formed themselves into brigades, advancing in a solid line on the fire, and discharging their secretions of formic acid at the common enemy. After some thousands of ants had thus sprayed the fire caused by the match, 'it was , blanketed completely by the fumes from the formic acid, the scientists reported. BERKELEY, April 17.
