Today there's ongoing relocation pandemonium with these girls. Setting up a new home in the permeable paving may not be the wisest option.

Antmageddon: a colony of Black Garden ants have lived in a sun-baked planter for over ten years. Now, the planter is being relocated and their worse fears have come to pass.

Ants and aphids : milking time. Ants 'shepherd' flocks of aphids, protecting them from predators. In return, and for a quick tickle on the bum, the aphids excrete droplets of honeydew; their sugary liquid poo (it's what makes cars and pavements sticky under trees). The ant on the left has her antennae-tickle down pat and slurps up the sweet reward.
