Durants, while often seen as pests, are somewhat admired by humans for their industriousness and social tendencies. At least [[{{WesternAnimation/Antz}} a couple of]] [[ABugsLife animated films]] have been made where they are the main characters.

There is a popular Durant simulation game called [[SimAnt Sim Durant]]. In this game, the player takes control of a Durant from a Durant nest and performs various tasks such as foraging, digging, and defending the nest. Threats to the player include a rival Durant nest and a single, roaming Heatmor.

Durants are divided into 3 main groups: soldiers, workers, and the queen. The defining trait that determines what group a Durant belongs to is its behavior. Soldier Druants are characterized by fighting all the more fiercely when they are hurt. Worker Durants are much harder working in general then the soldiers, but also much less precise in their actions. Very rarely, an extremely lethargic Durant will be born. They do about half as much work as the other Durants. Lethargic females are made queen because since they cannot work or fight, breeding is all that’s left for them to do. There can be multiple lethargic females per nest, though only one of them will ever be the queen. When the current queen dies, the eldest of the remaining lethargic females will becomes the new queen. Lethargic males, on the other hand, are kicked out of the nest, mostly likely to meet their end in the wild.

Durants from different colonies are generally hostile with eachother. The only exception to this is if the nest in question is a direct offshoot of the other nest, in which case the Durants will simply avoid eachother. As mentioned in Notable Biology, every nest of Durants has a certain identification pheromone, and this identification pheromone is included in all pheromone trails lefts by Durants from that nest. Should Durants come across the pheromone trail of a rival Durant nest, they will avoid the area. However, if they should actually come across some rival Druants, a fight is very likely.

A queen Durants only job is to mate with other Durant and lay eggs. A Typical queen Durant will lay 6-10 eggs per day, though they can quadruple those number in case of an event severely diminishing nest strength or if they are establishing a new nest. The Queen has her choice of males to mate with, with preferences seeming to vary from queen to queen. Once the eggs are laid, a worker transports them to a chamber just for holding eggs. The eggs take about a day to hatch. Freshly hatched Durants have very thin exoskeletons, and are moved to another new chamber where they are fed large amounts of metals to help thicken their exoskeleton. They stay here for about 2 days before they’re considered old enough to join the workforce.

A well established Durant nests will typically have 4-5 other lethargic female besides the queen. Their job is to watch over the growing Durants and observe their behavior so they can decided what positions the young Durants should be assigned to.

There are strict regulations on taking Durants outside of Unova. This is due to the belief that, should a Durant colony become established in another region, it would severely disrupt the local ecosystems.

Durants are omnivores, though they prefer meat. Durants leave the nests in groups of 5-6 scavenge/hunt for food, with a mix of both worker and soldier Durants. Pokémon killed in defense of the nest are also consumed. They also ingest large amounts of metals to provide for their exoskeletons. Durants get this metal both from metal deposits that they find, and also from cannibalizing dead Durants.
