Temnothorax curvispinosus is a subject of much interest in the field of behavioral biology, given the species' highly social conduct and manageable colony size. Colonies frequently nest in empty galleries in twigs or sticks and will occasionally house more than two or three queens for every 100-150 workers, making them highly polygynous.
