Messor barbarus is a Myrmicinae with minor- till major-worker with all passings. Great colonies carry their seeds on long "highways" into the nest. They are storing the seeds in different granaries and prepare them in "chew-communities" to the so-called ant bread especially for the colder season. They lay out an trash-accumulation. This species can tolerate lower temperatures than Messor barbarus.
