About this book

Originally published in 1986. This book discusses the history and economics, biology and ecology, behaviour, pheromones and other semiochemicals, physiology, and biochemistry of fire ants and leaf-cutting ants. It illustrates new approaches to control these ants by innovative research on anti-feedant chemicals from plants.
