“The repairing of a rent in the nest of the red tree ant (Ecophylla smaragdina). The nest is made of leaves, held together with a silken web. The figure shows the workers repairing a rent, one brigade of them being occupied in drawing the edges of the leaves together, while the others on the inside of the nest move the spinning larvae back and forth across the gap.” -National Geographic, 1912
