Ants keep slaves. Certain species, the so-called sanguinary ants in particular, raid the nests of other ant tribes, kill the queen, and kidnap many of the workers. The workers are brought back to the captors’ hive where they are coerced into performing menial tasks.

I was wondering what kind of "menial tasks" ants perform....
Cleaning toilets? Digging ditches? Even that would imply that they have some kind of language....

Do ants have sex slaves?

Some of them farm and practice animal husbandry, too. There's one species that keeps a type of aphid that produces a sweet nectar-like substance they like, and another that farms a kind of fungus for food. Ants are just cool like that.

I know there's been many scientific studies on ants. I know there's a lot of observation that's gone on. *shrug*
