    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Do Ants Attack Other Insects off Castor Bean Plants? [E]
    Find out if white sage and eucalyptus concentrates repel argentine ants. [E]
    Research Formica Ants [P]
    Test whether certain odorous of household items such as vanilla extract, various liquid air fresheners, catnip, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, garlic, and lemons could effectively block a termite's pheromone trail and/or deter the termites from home invasion. [E]
    Do ants produce acid when antagonised? [E]
    Effects of temperature, light, different foods and type of sand on ant activities [E]
    Are ants attracted more to sugar or to aspartame? [P]
    Insect Science Fair Projects & Experiments
    Middle School - Grades 7-9
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    How Does Electromagnetic Radiation Affect A Colony of Harvester Ants? [E]
    Ants produce attractant pheromones to mark trails that lead to food sources. Do they also produce a "do not enter" signal to mark paths that do not lead to food? [E]
    Does the Distance between Ants and Food Affect the Percentage of Ants that Go to the Food? [E]
    Find out what can repel ants yet not harm them in any way by using natural house hold items or products that can be easily bought. [E]
    Do Ants Really Need Their Antennae? [E]
    What Ethnic Food Do the Ants Like the Most? [E]
    Determine to which flavor ants are most attracted. [P]
    Determine if electricity could be used as an ant repellant. [E]
    Which ant pesticides works the best? [E]
    Insect Science Fair Projects & Experiments
    High School - Grades 10-12
    P=Project   E=Experiment
    Pheromone Following Traits as a Measure of the Evolutionary Efficiency of Eusociality of Ants [E]
    Determine whether a diluted and thus lower concentrated solution of the ant deterrent, Raid, is as effective as a fully concentrated solution of Raid. [E]
    Determine which common household sweetener (saccharin, sucrose, aspartame, sucralose) the ant species, Linepithema humile, was most attracted to. [E]
    Test the hypothesis that termites determine the direction of their nest from the degrees of the angles found in their pheromone trails. [E]
    Foraging Behavior and Food Preferences of Argentine Ants [E]
    Investigate aggression among ants. [E]
