This was hard to understand, but typing it, I realized that -at first I thought the smells are from the foods- , but actually they are from ants' bodies, made by them intentionally to guide direction to a food's location, right?
44)Do you smell something sweet? Then you should go straight. What if you smell something fishy? That means you should turn right. This is how ants communicate with each other. Most ants can use up to 20 different smells to communicate. They use smells the same way we use words. Each one has a different meaning. When they put smells together, they can make different messages...
I read it like that, too.
