Turns out that there is another ant that takes this interference behaviour to a whole new level. In the Lower Sonoran desert, two ant species like the same food, namely seeds. These ants are Pogonomyrmex barbatus and Novomessor cockerelli.
Pogonomyrmex likes to collect seeds during the morning, before it gets too hot in the afternoon. Novomessor however, likes to find food in the evening. Because they like the same food, Novomessor decided to start teasing the Pogonomyrmex.
In the evening, they start plugging the nest-entrances of the Pogonomyrmex with sand. This means that when the Pogonomyrmex wake up, they first have to start removing the sand from the entrance, before they can start to look for food. However, they have a big time-constraint, as the temperature is way to high in the afternoon. This basically means they have less time every morning in order to collect all their food, leaving more seeds for the Novomessor.
