Observation date: September 26, 2015
Submitted by: actexas
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: They are eating the leaves of my vines in El Paso, TX. They are falling to the floor and crawling all over the back yard. The ants seem to be leaving them alone which is odd as they usually kill/store everything in sight as they prepare for our mild winter in west Texas.
