Insecta: Planet of the Ants (Book 1 - Zombie Nest)
by W Thor Larson
Phorid flies overwhelm the Schumanni ant nest, laying eggs in their prey and turning them into zombies. To stop the infestation, the Queen seals her infected brood underground and sends her son on a perilous mission to enlist help. But can the armored leafcutters rescue the Queen before the zombie ants and flies reach her? Or will the fire ants unseal the nest and let loose the monsters within?
