Sticky Feet: Ants have incredibly sticky feet, they can hang onto ceilings carrying 100 times their body weight

But if they are stuck down so successfully - how do they ever get them unstuck? Chris Clemente is studying the mechanisms that ants and other insects (especially cockroaches) use to stick and unstick, and also to walk down as well as up walls. He also considers the applications that this might one day help to develop a 'supersuper glue' and to improve the movement of robots.

This is amazing.  Asian weaver ant.   Fluid filled ant feet makes them stick.  This guy would make a great speaker at pest management events. I wish he was here in the States.

This is amazing.  I have never viewed a breakdown of how ants and roaches travel and can hold on to smooth surfaces, upside down, like this expert has demonstrated.
