When I think of this beetle, it reminds me a lot of God's enemy, sin. We are so blind, that in many respects we are just like ant. We think that sin is normal in our lives and so we just tend to ignore it. We need special direction from God to recognize and destroy sin in our lives.
If we don't get rid of sin, it will destroy most precious things in our lives and eventually kill us as well. Let's ask God to help us to find parasites in our lives and destroy them.

I have not been able to find common books with pictures of Cremastocheilus in them. However, there are a few published on web. I suggest going to Google.com and clicking on images tab. Then search for cremastocheilus and you should be able to find an image or two.
If you want to collect some specimens, easiest way to do that is to put a large flat rock on nest of one of large carpenter ant colonies found in most pine forests. You can tell them, because they make a large pile of pine needles and if you listen, you can hear them rustling around inside. To catch some, place a large flat rock on side of nest. Come back in a few days when sun has been warming up rock. One of these beetles can often be found warming up under rock.
