    Proc Biol Sci 267:1751-7. 2000
    ..We propose a new hypothesis that explains split sex ratios in polygynous social insects based on the value of producing replacement queens...

    ..Hence, we conclude that Wolbachia does not seem to alter the sex ratio of its hosts as a means to increase transmission rate in these two populations of ants...
