How Long Does an Ant Live?

Answer

The lifespan of an ant depends on its function within the colony. Workers can live up to a year, but usually die within a few months. Fertile male ants die after mating, which means they only live a few weeks. Queens, which are fertile females, can live for 2 or 3 years and a succession of fertile females can keep a single colony alive for very long periods of time.
