    Maggie,
    Your posts are always so interesting and informative. Thanks you.
    As for ants milking other insects, ants protecting aphids comes to mind each time I see the blasted pests in my garden.

    Oh the horror!

    These ants are raising livestock for carnivorous purposes.

    I for one…. meh.

    Cicada Killers will paralyze cicadas and let them live for extended periods of time so they may lay their eggs on them, allowing their larvae to feed off the still-living cicada. Is this the same thing?
