About Solenopsis invicta
Solenopsis invicta, the red fire ant, is native to South America, but has become an invasive pest in many countries, where the ants have gained notoriety for their aggression and the painful sting from which their name is derived. Fire ants are eusocial and have been used as a model species for the study of complex hymenopteran social behaviour, such as their caste system  and altruism .
Additional genomic resources are available for several ant species at Hymenoptera Genome Database  and at Fourmidable .
