Many of us who may get desert dwelling ant species from Arizona or other parts of the USA may wonder, just what type of soil do these ants live in? It is a common belief that ants such as Myrmecocystus (Honey Pot Ants) and Pogonomyrmex (Harvester Ants), live in a nest made from sand and pebbles; but from the information I am trying to put together here, it would suggest that plain sand alone does not entirely form the particles which make up the desert soil. Something to think very carefully about when keeping an ant species from another country which is a desert dweller www.desertusa.com/desert.html
