[NOTE: S. saevissima is S. invicta or S. richteri in North America] *[Field studies were conducted in south Mississippi during 1969 to determine if foraging territories existed in association with mounds of Solenopsis saevissima richteri Forel & to determine the amount of association between adjacent colonies. Results of these studies show that definite foraging territories do exist & that they are easily defined. There is little movement or communication between imported fire ants of adjacent colonies, & each colony operates as an isolated unit.]
