Researchers have documented the first known instance of insects moving prey by forming chains http://phys.org/news/2016-06-documented-instance-insects-prey-chains.html
In 2010, ant researchers Christian Peeters and Stéphane De Greef spotted chains of bluish ants dragging a huge millipede in Phnom Kulen National Park, Cambodia. Each ant bit on a constriction on the abdomen of the ant ahead of it, while the first ant bit tight on the millipede's antenna. Walking backwards, the ants heaved the millipede away.

New discovery may improve future mosquito control http://phys.org/news/2016-06-discovery-future-mosquito.html
Major rainfall across most of Texas triggering hordes of mosquitos coupled with seemingly constant mosquito-related Zika virus media reports from around the globe may have set the stage perfectly for what one researcher deems as a very significant discovery in man's war against earth's leading human disease carrier.
