I used to love to give ant hills pieces of bread when I was a kid. It is fascinating to watch them swarm over food and take little chunks back underground. I felt like I was doing a good deed by feeding this mass of insects so easily.

Star and flag for you, Xoanon, a great post on something most never think about. Like you, I too set a lot of stock in what the Hopi said and believed.
I have read the stories of the Ant People, and how they came up from the ground and took the Natives down to their lair, until the "Event" whatever it was, was over. There has to be something there, people just don't make up stories like that.
but then leave the dustpan on the floor so they can leave and TELL the others that the bitch is still vigilant before throwing whatever crumb it was they were after outside for them.
The 1st kind, I believe might be a variety of the "Crazy Ant". I ran into this little bugger in Kuwait. They appeared to be on Meth-amphetamine, running around all crazy like with no discernible purpose. The disturbing thing though, was that when you stomped on them. THEY WOULD UNSQUISH THEMSELVES! (Imagine Bugs Bunny blowing into his thumb to un-flatten himself)Then just continue their mad dash to nowhere in particular. Insanity I tell you.
The 2nd type, I encountered in Iraq, These things were huge. Easily an inch or more long, and they crunched when you stepped on them. I dubbed them "Gorilla Ants". They only came out as the sun was setting. Like a black wave of death to claim the night. They were attracted to light as well. So if you had to pee in the middle of the night, you had better be quick with your flashlight because they were coming for you.
