Phoretic arthropods on fire ant alates chart

 

Chart showing monthly totals of fire ant alates and frequently found phoretic arthropods.  USDA photo.

In a 2008 study (Fig. 2), a total of 4,663 phoretic arthropods were removed from fire ant alates.  A wide variety of taxonomic groups were represented, including two insect and fourteen mite families (a total of 27 species). The arthropods fell into three classes: 1) truly phoretic, with many specimens collected; 2) probably phoretic with few specimens collected; and 3) accidentally phoretic with only one or two specimens collected.  Read more about how arthropods disperse through phoresy at  eXtension.org.
