What do ants eat?
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 bring 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.
Fire ants will eat other ants. Army ants will also eat other ants and actually seem to specialize in raiding the broods of other ant colonies. In fact fire ants will eat almost any kind of insect they catch. Ants (Formicidae) are a very broad genus. Asking what do ants eat is like asking what do people eat. It depends on which ants.
