*[Lasius neglectus excludes other ant species from the areas of its supercolonies and invades houses. Studies show L. neglectus reached a very high abundance in the centers of the supercolonies at the expense of the abundance of other ant species. A c2 test, showed the distributions of the L. neglectus in the center area and the border were significantly different (p<0.95). The Shannon diversity index of the center community is significantly smaller than the diversity of the border (p<0.95).]
