No, ants typically do not eat glue. In fact, if an ant comes in  contact with glue, the ant will usually get stuck on the surface of  the glue and die.
Contact adhesives must be applied to both surfaces and allowed some time to dry before the two surfaces are pushed together. Once the surfaces are pushed together, the bond forms instantly. It is usually not necessary to apply pressure for a long time, so there is no need to use clamps. There are...
anything you can stick with that.
  OK. I hope you're ready for this.   Go to your hardware store. In the glue department is some metalized epoxy that is two solid sticks that you break off equal amounts and mix it together. Use this to fix the crack. Now comes the tricky part.   This crack will continue to spread. Heating...

Hooves ANS 2 - Glues are not made from animal products any more
At first I thought it was because of the salts coming in contact  with the glue that caused the color change. Then I wondered if the  heat from the candles inside the jars were causing the  discoloration. That theory was shot down when I noticed some other  projects I made that had no contact...
I don't think it was so much illegal as technology. Other materials that were easier and less expensive to get gradually took the place of horse hooves.
Cohesive is forces within the same material (same molecules). Adhesive is the force between two different materials (two surfaces of different molecules).

It depends on the type of glue, but most kinds have a pH at or slightly below 7.0, which is neutral (the same pH as pure water). Glue with a pH below 5.5 would probably be too acidic and a glue above 7.5 would be too basic.

If heat is exposed to glue than it will melt instead of harden i guess ANS 2 -If heat is given to some adhesives, epoxies in particular, they will set faster and become stronger. -It's very important to remember the term 'glue' refers to at least a hundred different formulas. -Simply calling it...
Temperature affects the strength or adherence of Elmer's glue by  causing it to either fail to bond at very low or high temperatures.  If the temperature is very low the glue will become brittle and  crack. If the temperature is very high the glue won't work because  more liquid is being moved...
