Florida Carpenter Ants
Florida Harvester Ants
Northern Tuberculate Fungus-Gardener Ants These are nests of the Northern Tuberculate Fungus-Gardener ant (Trachymyrmex septentrionalis), the only local ant that makes this kind of mound. This species gathers bits of vegetation and caterpillar droppings, used to cultivate fungus gardens underground. The larvae eat only fungi. This species has a tendency to forage at night or in early morning, although workers are sometimes out during the day. These ants are very shy, and freeze when disturbed, so there may be occasions when no ants are to be seen, but they are really masquerading as bits of dirt.
