Leaf Ants

Description:

Red ants about an inch long, very aggressive if disturbed,sting is mild and can be annoying. Making nest in trees from leafs.

Habitat:

Anywhere in Borneo, I seen them on twigs,leafs floating down streams.

Notes:

Not a comfortable feeling if bit constantly by many of them while harvesting fruits from your trees, the plus part they eat and attack anything that harms the tree.

Do you have a larger image? I'd guess weaver ants http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oecophylla_...
