Thatching Ant Mound - the ants add and remove sticks and grass to maintain internal thermal regulation

Seen on the slickrock near the rim overlook, Capitol Reef National Park..

This may be a Formica obscuripes Thatching Ant mound. I have seen this same mound over in the Yakima area on Umtanum Ridge.

A short video www.flickr.com/photos/brewbooks/4849481045/ I took, really shows how active these are. These ants have a distinctive body, half red, half black.

Fairly common in early spring in northern Utah farmlands. I surprised to see this species on a hike in an arid part of Capitol Reef NP. However, this individual fly-catching in an orchard near the Fremont River.
