Why ants steal young ants from others' nest?
Ants steal other ants so that they will work for the conquering colony. young ants are like children and rather helpless and happy provided they are fed. the young ants get use to the smell of the new colony and believe this to be the norm. In short the young ants dont know that they were not born into the colony they are now with so act as if they were born there and work like other native ants in that...
