-Junior Editors Quiz on- ANTS QUESTION: Are srmy ants found in the United States? ANSWER: Army ants are truly the terrors of the insect world. Unlike other ants, they never establish permanent homes. They are forever on the march, seeking prey which sometimes includes large animals. A horde of army ants on the march is a terrifying sight. Even people flee from them for they are afraid of nothing. They have been known to enter houses and leave not a single living thing behind them. Fortunately, there are no army ants in the United States. They are found in Africa and in South and Central America. FOR YOU TO DO: Even ordinary ants have some of the characteristics of army ants. One of them is singleness of purpose. Next time you find a colony of ants, study these busy insects. See how difficult it is to discourage them from their project. (Roy McDonald of Cordell, Okla., wins $10 for this question.
