Stagnation is a common problem that all ant algorithms suffer from regardless of their application domain.This paper proposes a new algorithmic approach that can effectively be used to tackle combinatorial optimization problems with a good chance to control the stagnation. The new approach utilizes multiple ant colonies with certain techniques that efficiently organize the work of these colonies to avoid the stagnation situations. Computational tests show that the proposed approach is competitive with other state of art ant algorithms.
