Came across the following article "Las hormigas enfermas mueren voluntariamente en soledad" at El PeriĆ³dico 'bout how sick ants leave the nest to die so as not to transmit their disease to the others - with special emphasis on the voluntary aspect of it.

Another website with interesting stuff on the social aspects of an ant's life is
