Ants like sweet things like watermelon and honeydew. Some ants eat dead insects! They also eat other small insects and crumbs you leave laying around. Almost anything. They especially like sugar and sweet things. They love scraps of everything. They just take the food without caring what it is and b…ring it home to eat.They also give their food to the queen.If anyone(exept ants of their kind)disturbs the queen will be bitten by them and may die.

When an ant wants to go ahead and eat their food their pincers break down the food so that they may eat it.
Different species differ widely in their diets and may be carnivorous, herbivorous, or omnivorous. . Members of some species eat honeydew from plants infested with aphids and certain other insects; . others, called dairying ants, feed and protect the aphids and "milk" them by stroking. . Har…vester ants eat and store seeds; these sometimes sprout around the nest, leading to the erroneous belief that these ants cultivate their food. . However, cultivation is practiced by certain ants that feed on fungi grown in the nest. . Some of these, called leaf-cutter, or parasol, ants, carry large pieces of leaf to the nest, where the macerated leaf tissue is used as a growth medium for the fungus. Most leaf cutters are tropical, but the Texas leaf-cutting ant is a serious crop pest in North America. . The army ants of the New World tropics and the driver ants of tropical Africa are carnivorous, nomadic species with no permanent nests. They travel like armies in long columns, overrunning and devouring animals that cannot flee their path; the African species even consume large mammals. they decompose dead things like worms on a sidewalk (MORE)
If they are dead and decomposed, yes.If you piut in live ants, they may attack your worms.
Ants do not eat people. Though some ants will sting and bite ifthey fell that they are being threatened.
Nigricep Ants eat mostly honeydew, fruit, nectar, and smallinsects. They are also known as Bull Ants.
Yes, people all over the world eat ants. As to how good they taste, that's another story. One potential danger is that if you don't know where the ants have been, you may be ingesting potential toxins (pesticides).
\nNo. In some-places they are a delicacy. I wouldn't eat live, but it won't harm you.
dead insect,grains,other insect,ants in the ground ( NOT THE SAME AS THEM), underground insect, etc.
I found a baby toad and i was wondering if they ate black ants because that is all i could find... please answer.. ANSWER: . They eat a variety of insects. Ants, grasshoppers, crickets and earthworms. If you are truly concerned about the toad, just let him go. They hunt during the day and in the… summer, at night. He should be able to survive on his own. (MORE)
If you eat a a live black ant it will not do anything to you, but it actually provides protein and fiber. Red ant, just the same.
There may be gastrointestinal upset of ant poison is eaten. Thebest thing to do is contact poison control to see what steps needto be taken.
Yes. They can pinch/bite you though so watch out, try removing the head before you eat it.
well, the ants can eat lot of things such aas trucks, boys, toys, and little grown mature and pregnated girls... if you dont believe me, then go on the discovery cahnnel and they are depicted as one of the most extreme animals to live on the face of he earth. hope his answer helps
Not that I have heard about an I have been here for about 50 years.
Yes, the skunks do eat the ants. Other than the ants the skunksalso eat the centipedes, millipedes, earthworms, wasps and cricketsalso guard honey bees. Other than that skunks also eats animalslike ducks, chicken, fish and much more. They are omnivorous so caneat anything.
\nMany birds and large insects eat ants, but the best-known thing which eats ants is the Anteater - a mammal with a long snout and sticky tongue which it uses to get ants out of anthills.
Anteaters eat ants. But if you live in North America you need birds and bears. Many types of American birds eat ants along with berries and other insects. Attracting large numbers of these birds would benefit the land owner with an ant population problem. Bears also love ants, fish and honey. If you… can convince your neighbour to attract bears and birds to your neighbourhoods, your ant problem will seem easier to manage. Next you need to spray safe eco-freindly ant killer with "diaphanous" earth at the entrances of each colony. Ants are hardy and difficult to get rid of completely. Get creative and stay the course. Good luck. (MORE)
ants will eat almost anything! They need sugar and salty things for there exo-skeleton to grow. But ants are mostly herbivores! they eat just about anything edible, most ants eat small insects like grasshoppers, slugs, and bees
a stupid person :). and a big black hole called the a$$ of time ants are eaten bye ant eater's
Actually, many ant species pray on other ant species. For example, many army ants, found throughout the tropics, prey on other ants' brood (immature ants, such as eggs and larvae). Some are specialized on invading the nests of other ants and grabbing the immature from the nest. When this happens, i…t is common to see ants from the invaded nest flee from their home, carrying their young in their mandibles. Other species have special nest entrances that can be closed with a little pebble when they sense the approach of an invading army ant raid. These behaviors must have originated in the long history between army ants and other ants, with army ants evolving mechanisms that improve their predation efficiency, and prey ants evolving mechanisms that reduce this damage.

No. In colonies, there are special ants that have the job of disposing of deceased ants.
Ants usually eat sweet stuff but usually theywill eat anything from cake to cockroaches. Trust me I've tested it !!!
First the ant will get its food,(which are other ants) kill it by using its powerful stingers to sting the other ant in the neck. Then once it is dead start to rip it apart, and eat it.
Ants will eat any living (or dead) thing they can bring into their colony even if they have to rip it apart alive. I've seen it.
No, ants typically do not eat glue. In fact, if an ant comes incontact with glue, the ant will usually get stuck on the surface ofthe glue and die.
an anteater can eat up to 30,000 ants a day! But anteaters can also eat termites, yea know.
they swarm it and then they injecy it with an acid using its pincers and then they take it back to its layer
Ants are pests which survive on anything that has nutrition. so yes, if it just on the floor but normally they probably wouldn't eat a banana
Well if your talking about animals that at ants than many things including ant eaters
yes,they can eat ants they dont even need arms and legs amazing isn't it. Gust pop a few in and they will eat them. I haven't fed them ants yet but i will becouse someone wrote a comment on it.
Yes centipedes eat ants. It is a part of their already complex diet. The centipede is one of the very few ant predators. hope this helps :)
Build a rocket ship, then go to mars, and start an army of ants to over run the martians, then plot your revenge on that ant eater.
There are somewhere around 12,000 species of ants around the world,but none of them eat dirt. Some ants eat vegetables, some eatprotein in the form of dead bugs, and some ants will even eatapples and other sweet tasting foods.
Pull off its legs and swallow it. One ant does not make a meal, even the largest ones. You can have them fried, pressed into cakes with honey, or even fried and chocolate covered as a tasty, crunchy snack. (Avoid the ones that have venom. Unlike the poison from honeybees, the formic acid can c…reate other toxins when cooked.) (MORE)
Yes, like termites. But don't call an exterminator they mostly just destroy even more wood to get to the main scource. It would be easier to do it yourself. You take wasp killer because wasps and ants are closely related, then you spray it on all of your would like your walls and stuff, they won't g…o near it and they will leave. (MORE)
It matters what ant it is. Most ant types will never eat there own colony. If you are thinking this is true because your ants are attacking each other that is because they are from different colonys, they will naturally kill each other because they are not from the same place.
Crickets will eat ants if that is one of the food sourcesavailable. Some other things crickets will eat include fleas,flies, grass, and sticks.
well if it is not an adult it might be getting ready to molt (shed skin)so take out all food as the live food may eat the mantis during molt. if its an adult it might be getting ready to lay eggs or it might be dieing
It varies in poison, from the fire ant to the sugar ant, there are many different ants you can consume. I hope this has helped you. Thanks, Isabella As Isabella said, ants differ in how safe it is to eat them. Most are OK, but have a sharp taste. Some kinds have been used instead of pepper (…I would rather do without pepper, but if it suits you, all right). Some kinds are not especially poisonous, but they have a very bad taste and smell when they get hurt, so you wouldn't want to eat them. Some kinds are quite poisonous, but I never have heard of anyone eating enough to get poisoned. Some kinds, like bulldog ants and fire ants sting badly when hurt, so you had better make sure they are dead before eating any in your food. Once they are dead, it would take a lot of ants in your food to hurt you though. Generally, if your candy bar or sandwich has ants on it, blow off as many them as you can, make sure that there are not many live ants left on the food, and go ahead and eat it. (MORE)
Fungus is what a colony of leafcutter ants [ Atta spp , Acromyrmex spp ] eat. That's why they slice out leafy chunks with their scissor-sharp jaws. The leaves are so important to growing the underground fungus that small but ferocious guard ants ride atop the leaves that the cutters bring back… to the colony. A colony may have 5 million members in a 25 foot [7.62 meters] nest that's divided into hundreds of small rooms. (MORE)
Fungus for larvae and sap for adults are whatleafcutter ants eat. Specifically, the ants in question ( Acromyrmex and Atta spp) cut and transport fresh flowers, grasses andleaves. The fresh vegetation feeds colonies in the fungal family Agaricaceae . Leafcutter ants grow antimicrobial bacteriaon… their backs to keep the fungi pest-free and tasty. They imbibethe sap from foliage while foraging. (MORE)
Big cereal eating ants! And they love coco pops and Kelogs Crunchy nut and weet-bix.
Ants are not something breeders provide for their pets, these insects are barely even seen, and if they are spotted the gecko will most likely have to grab a mouthfull of substrate to grab the insect. This can cause Impaction and kill your pet. Ants are also probably coming from outside, where th…ey are most likely living in a polluted area with germs and bacteria. (MORE)
No rabbits do not eat ants. Ants however do like some of theveggies and fruits that rabbits do eat.
Rover ants scout for food supplies then take it back to the nestfor the larvae to consume. Depending on the presents of pesticides,the ant might die from exposure.
No. Lovebugs are small, slow herbivorous insects that feed on the pollen and nectar found in flowers. They do not have mandibles and do not feed on other insects.
Yes you can eat bull ants but first you have to break off its head and you can eat them raw. Next time you see one see if you have the guts to eat one. That's your challenge!
No worms cannot eat ants, worms can eat only soil as there digestive system is not compatible for digesting other animals.
Leopards are carnivores so eat meat. The type of prey depends on where the leopards are residing. However ants will eat almost any type of food provided it can be broken down easily or is very sweet. However often ants eat fungus (The fungus is fed by the ants on rotting material such as plant matte…r) or nectar (collected from wasp colonies or plants) rather than more conventional food sources. However ants like flies will consume rotten meat so will often get the leftovers of what the leopard had for a meal. (MORE)
