Data from: Alate susceptibility in ants

Eddie K. H. Ho & Megan E. Frederickson
Pathogens are predicted to pose a particular threat to eusocial insects because infections can spread rapidly in colonies with high densities of closely related individuals. In ants, there are two major castes: workers and reproductives.
