- REPRODUCTIVE STRATEGIES OF THE EXOTIC PHARAOH ANT, MONOMORIUM-PHARAONIS (L) (HYMENOPTERA, FORMICIDAE) IN BRAZIL
- Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP)
- The production of sexual forms in laboratory colonies of Monomorium pharaonis was followed over a 19-month period. Cycles of production occurred at intervals of 4 months, with male investment inversely proportional to the number of gynes produced. There was a tendency for colonies to produce only males or females as total sexual production increased. Sperm counts of known-aged males suggest that they mate twice, in contrast to European populations. Sex-ratio was heavily female-biased, contrary to predictions for polygynous ant species.
