What are these Classes, Orders, sub families etc?

Like all living things, ants are classified and grouped into a hierarchal system that shows how organisms are related. Ants are found in the Kingdom ‘Animalia, the Phylum ‘Arthropoda‘, the Class ‘Hexapoda‘, the Order ‘Hymenoptera‘ (which also includes bees, wasps, and sawflies). They are then broken down into 11 ‘Subfamilies‘, c.300 ‘Genera‘ and finally c.12,500 species. Simple.
