Why do ants carry alive ants?
because if a ant is injured sometimes other ants will try to help the other ant
Ants have different types of jobs. Some ants gather food, some ants dig tunnels, some ants carry the dead and waste products from their nests and put them in "dumpster" areas. The dead ants give off a certain chemical which attracts ants to carry the bodies to the dumpster area. They do this to keep their areas clean.
Yes , ants like many other types of bugs can carry disease or bacteria that cause disease. It is best to use bug killer or consult an exterminator if you suspect you have ants. (Regarding the small black ones.) Just came upon this while researching ants. Sorry, ants do not carry germs. The food they carry might but not them. Also, it impossible to microwave ants.
