The article says nothing about what they look like, what ants they are related to, how they can be diagnosed, where they occur, what they eat, who eats or parasitizes them, that they are popular among ant hobbyists, etc. Bart. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:23, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Behavior section[edit]

I thought this was well written and presented a lot of interesting facts. All I did was fix some minor spelling errors and change the headings so the titles were lower case after the first word. Good work! But you might want to fix whatever the copyright issue is. Daniel Ouellette 1:12, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Another peer edit[edit]

I thought the article was really well-written and contained a depth of information. However, there were a few things I noticed:

1. Sometimes it uses the past tense when the present tense would be more appropriate according to Wikipedia guidelines. 2. There were very few hyperlinks, so I added a couple to key words like pheromones and optimal foraging theory. 3. While for the most part the article is very clear and readable, there were some places where you used highly specific ecological vocabulary and reasoning. I think that overall you should make the article more accessible to the layman.

Apart from these small issues, I thought it was great. Nice job!Solon5g93 (talk) 03:49, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
