Résumé

At Westbank, British Columbia, the red antFormica subnitens Creighton obtained food from two primary sources: animal tissues and liquids containing sugar. Animal tissues were of insects, and those that formed the largest part of the diet of the ants were other ants, Coleoptera, and Lepidoptera. Hemiptera, Homoptera, and Orthoptera were taken in lesser numbers. The number of insects captured per day varied depending on the number of ants foraging. The number captured throughout the summer varied with the requirements of the ant brood. The ants used plant secretions from May to early June as a source of sugar. From June until September they collected honey dew from 10 species of aphids and one species of Membracidae.
