Excerpt from The Argentine Ant as a Household Pest

The nurseryman, the trucker, and the orange grower are greatly molested by this pest, owing to the fondness of the ant for the honey dew excreted by aphids and scale insects. The workers take the best possible care of these honeydew-yielding species, and protect them from their natural enemies, frequently building shelters over them, and as the host plants grow, carry the young scales and aphids and place them on the young tender growth, where they may more easily sap the juices of the plants.

In corn, cotton, and sugar-cane fields, the Argentine ant when present is constantly attending the aphids and mealybugs, increasing the numbers of these species to an alarming degree, much to the det riment of the plants. The writer estimates that a considerable loss of sugar results from the attendance of the Argentine ant on the sugar-cane mealybug.
