Weaver ants use their larvae as tiny silk-spewing glue guns

I find ants fascinating. They are all like little computer programs doing their jobs, and then have set functions they can run when they encounter issues, like invasion, or finding a new food source, etc.

It makes me wonder if in the future we an program insect behavior.
