MANETs hold the promise of future, with the capability to establish networks at anytime, anywhere without the aid of any established infrastructure. In MANETs all nodes are mobile and can be connected dynamically. MANETs are inspired by ant colony optimization framework and uses "Ants" for route discovery, maintenance & improvement. Due to dynamic nature of MANETs, they can lead to end-to-end delay & overhead. The algorithm is based on balancing the load among the routes by calculating threshed value of each routing table & ants helps to effectively balance the loads as it find a pair of under loaded and over loaded nests.
