There are several thousand different types of ants around the world. Red ants are the second most common types of ants, they can be aggressive and are known to bite. Black ants also known as sugar ants, love anything sweet and will look for food wherever they smell it which can lead them to being in your house.
There are several species of honeypot ants in various parts of the world, including parts of the Americas, Africa and Australia. Their workers and in species where there is a soldier caste, the soldiers too, will bite about as much as most not-too-aggressive ant species.

Ants are attracted to sugar and do not die from eating sugar or sweet things. Most people think sugar kills ant because they try to exterminate the ants with sugar water. The water is what kills the ants. For example, if a bowl of sugar water is left out to kill ants, the sugar attracts the ants but the water drowns the ants.
When sugar or sweets is dropped inside a house, ants will come into the house to get the sweets, leaving bits of sugar scattered on the floor and a bad smell around the place if they come in groups. Also, an ant can accidentally get into someone's body and make the person itch. Larger ants can also bite, and their bites can usually be painful.
Yes ... they do. All ants are female except a few males who are there to inseminate the queen/queens during mating. All ants bite when needed to defend the nest and there are some ants (soldiers) who have special abilities when doing so. Some soldier ants have large and powerful jaws to crush other ants while others have the ability to squirt formic acid at enemy ants when fighting. Yes ... female ants do bite…
