Social Insect Distancing – Ep. 16: Ants in Washington Park

In response to the ongoing pandemic, we are producing a short, no-frills daily podcast series: “Social Insect Distancing”. Today’s episode was recorded on the move, as our editor-in-chief took his daily stroll outside in a park (keeping 12 ft or more away from the nearest person, of course). We hope that learning a little about ants will provide cross-species comfort for anxious human readers!
