Sampling comments: "Ants were collected from May 2006 to August 2008, a period that corresponded to three sugarcane plantation-harvest cycles... six sampling points were defined in two sugarcane rows in the center of experimental plots" and "were 30 m apart... Six traps were set per experimental plot... and left in the field for seven days" (6 stands x 3 cycles x 6 traps x 7 days = 756 trap days)
