Some ants use triage to determine which wounded ants to carry to the nest and to give treatment. Moderately wounded ants are retrieved to the nest and cared for after battle, badly wounded ants not. In experiments it was found that the treatment - consisting mainly of wound licking - can boost the survival rate from 20 percent to 90 percent.
