There are more than 10,000 different types of ants. Many dig underground nests. Some nests go deep. They can reach 14 feet (4.3 m) underground. Other nests go down just a few inches. The ants work together to dig the nest. They also fix tunnels or rooms that collapse. As ants dig, they carry the dirt up to the surface.
