Abstract

Even though ants live and work close together in colonies, their nests are rarely hit by epidemics. Recent research suggests that the reason behind ants’ effective disease control is an early recognition of possible infection and prompt actions for prevention, treatment as well as following viable solutions to any adverse situations that can risk the survival of the colony as mentioned in this research article. Various experiments and observations have led to the intense awareness that these “superorganisms”, while demonstrating an ideal attitude of working conjointly, being aware of fellow co-worker’s health and practical decisions of secluding oneself when ill, unlike some humans, are very much similar to our immune system
