As current research is focusing on implementation of MANET for various commercial applications. But providing quality of service in mobile ad hoc networks is not an easy task due to the resource limitations and dynamic nature of MANETs. This paper presents a proposal for maintaining quality of service parameter for communication in MANET. This proposal is mainly inspired by the concept of swarm intelligence exhibited by group of ants when they search for food. Diffserv like service classes can be made available through this proposed approach.
