Ants are among the most widespread and successful insects in the world.
According to some estimates it is thought that there are more than 20,000
species of ants world-wide, of which only about 8800 have been identified so
far. Ants are believed to have evolved from aculeate
(stinging) wasps in the late-middle Cretaceous period more than 80 million years ago.
There are many species of ants in the Albuquerque area, so this page gives links to pages dealing with some of the more problematic species, as well as a simple key for identifying which ants you may be dealing with.
