Shetland has only one species of ant- Myrmica ruginodis which is common in the northern parts of Europe. I have found this species around the Quendale area in small numbers. It has a localised distribution in Shetland.

Colonies of around 2,500 individuals can be found with up to 20 Queens present.
It has a diet of small insects
