For awhile now I've noticed that people have been able to tell if a larvae is an alate or major, or just a normal worker. Does anyone have any tips on how to do that?

Thank youuuuu

Alate larvae are much, much bigger.

"The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer." Prov. 30:25  

Keep ordinary ants in extraordinary ways.
