Abstract:Ants are important natural enemies of termites, but not every ant species is a natural enemy of termites. To find out the resource of ant species in Chengdu city, termite species and ant species in house buildings, landscape trees, ancient buildings and underground termite monitoring stations were investigated during 2011-2015. A total of 9 termite species belonging to 4 genera and 3 families and 29 ant species belonging to 15 genera and 4 subfamilies were identified. The highest proportion of termites was Reticulitermes chinensis (83.9%), and Brachyponera chinensis (38.2%) was found to be the most common species of ants. Furthermore, significant negative correlations were detected between Lasius niger and R. aculabialis, R. neochinensis, between Formica lemani and R. chinensis, R. aculabialis, and between Pachycondyla astuta, Tetramorium caesputum and R. aculabialis. These findings suggested that L. niger, F. lemani, P. astuta and T. caesputum might have certain potential application prospects in termites biological control. Considering the effects of ants on termites can be influenced by environmental and artificial factors, further research on the natural control of ants against termites needs to be done.
