From what I have gathered this is not GMO. This is the application of a hormone native to the ant's system that when applied in this way causes this morph to occur. This is completely within their genome and this phenotype modification is caused by hormonal influences, which can be applied by ants in certain situations, as said earlier in this thread

In the UK and Australia I've seen all kinds of Spiders that I either can't find in library books or find online....Maybe a web designer could create an insect site where people post pictures and the like.
