Updated Ant Quiz

Along with my misspelling of a major ant subfamily, I also apparently had some errors in my online ant quiz. When I went through to correct them I decided to add a few more questions and include the genera in the message you get when you choose correctly. If anyone else notices any problems, please let me know!


  1. I really enjoy reading your blog and the comments. Nice work.. I'm also interested in the soil probe. Nice innovation. For how long did you plant them in the ground?


  2. Thanks! The probes were left in the ground for 72 hours, and checked three times during that period, although the majority of the ants were collected in the first 24 hours. We have a paper being reviewed now so hopefully it will be published soon and everyone can read more about the probes.
