little bit. By little bit. It's incredible what bees and ants manage with such simple means of communication.

Ants are the Borg. They assimilate. Resistance is futile

Ants do not tend their wounded. They eat them
the same way humans do

thezigrat except that specific video indicated that a particular species of ant does recover their wounded.  When marked as wounded, these ants were seen on later raids.  Thus not eaten.  And as an aside, o tentacled one, we humans don't eat our wounded.  We kill them first, so they're our dead.
