Yeah, Neivamyrmex are blind (if you haven't figured that out yet). :D

Is Neivamyrmex nomadic?

Pretty sure they are. I would guess that all Army ants are.

No, I know that some stay in their original location, but I do not know for sure.

Oh okay, well I know that some Neivamyrmex like N. californicus and N. nigrescens move around.

Holy thread resurrection, but this statement is wrong. as far as is known all army ants are nomadic.
