Can ants survive under water?
No, but re ants can. Because they made them self as a life boat and float to the other side of the river after landing they continue to march but when the water push to strong they make using themselves as bridge and make them march one by one. When the ants ( taking food or babies ) had pass the bridge then, the ants ( the one that made themselves as bridge ) FLIP and jump through the back of the front ants. They keep doing that a lot. +++ That's not quite the same thing - that is how to cross water without drowning.

Why do ants die after eating sugar?
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.
