Last afternoon I was eating a bar of chocolate on my bed when I felt sleepy.I wrapped the cover back and put the chocolate to my pocket because I was going to eat it again when I woke up.I lied down on my bed and fell asleep. But after sleeping for a while I felt something itchy so I woke up.Damn it.I was being attacked by too many ants.Their intention was my chocolate.Many of the ants were already in my chocolate.I get up and removed the ants all over my body.The ants have taken some parts of my chocolate so I just decided to no more eat it.I threw it outside the window so they could have it. I was really bothered that time.They took my beloved chocolate and ruined my nap.I hate ants.They are thief.They take other's food. Actually I have more other bad experiences with ants.:( Have the same happened to you?

Ants attack anything that is sweet and so when I make anything that is sweet such as cakes, etc I need to place the stuff in a mote of water till its time for me to store it. I will never put anything in my pocket and that too when I am asleep!

I would have not been attacked by ants if I didn't put the chocolate in my pocket.But I was too sleepy that time so I really got lazy.I didn't want to get up anymore to put the the chocolate to the proper place because I felt like the gravity increased.lol.

I am sorry to hear that. However, compare to the ants, I hate the mosquitoes much more. Since they can spread the disease. And it is quite annoying for them to fly around you and bite you at night. There are no ants at my home. It seems that they become less and less in the city. I love China

They are magnificent creatures but not so when they eat your stuff. I was saving this piece of salami sandwich. After making it I felt sleepy so I took a nap and left it in the table. I woke up 5 hours after and was so hungry. My mind was set to feeling satisfied with that sandwich as that was what my head was exactly craving for and then my whole world collided, my head almost exploded because I did not get the reward that I had in mind... ants in the sandwich... well just to get even, "If I can't then no one can!!!!" I threw it in a sink full of water.. DIE!!!!!! and I was grieving but happy coz revenge is sweet. Don't get me wrong I still respect those lil critters, just don't mess with my territory. If they're so persistent, I'll get an ant-eater as a permanent pet

I also like making revenge to them at times.When there is a line of ants outside the house,I get a lighter and burn them all.I like to see it when they fall into the ground.But I don't do it al all times.I only do it when ants sinned against me.lol.

Ants are such tiny little thieves! They're so shifty and their numbers can be pretty daunting! I hate it when it's summer, that's when the ants pop out and start stealing your food! Especially the nice sweet and tasty food! That's why, when I eat something, I always eat the amount I want and then quickly put it back in the fridge. I have a whole stack of chocolate in my fridge! But some ants can be quite bold and I have seen ants crawling in my fridge! Also, i the kitchen, I would see a whole stash of ants crawling everywhere all over the counter, trying to save as much crumbs as they can. I really hate them too, especially when they steal your food and take a ant out of you! They're such nasty little critters.

The thing I hate most about ants is that they multiply so fast.If I could just kill their queen to stop them from multiplying.:) Sometimes even if w e hide our foods,the ants still find way to steal them.Ants are such nasty thieves.

Ok, never sleep with sweets besides you esp a chocolate. You know that ants have special way of tracking/smelling sweet things that they loved so much. I don't like ants also, they bite to itchy and keep our foods spoiled once they attacked it. They also brings bacteria since they come from everywhere...ew...

I'm so sorry about your chocolate, ferbjohn.:( You're not alone. It happened to me, too. A few months ago, someone had given us a cake. We put it on the table. When we decided to eat it, we saw hundreds of ants already feasting on it. Ants has been a problem in our home. We've bought a few sachets of powder (I don't know what it's called) to kill the ants. That had temporarily solved the problem. They still keep on coming back.:( We had to store our food in an airtight container or inside the fridge. Another incident, when I was in college, a friend gave me a tiramisu. I've never tasted a tiramisu before so I was very happy. I had to attend a P.E. class, so I left my things on the floor. When I got back, millions of ants had already gotten inside the box.:( I was so upset. I didn't have guts to tell my friend about it. I just pretended to have eaten the cake.

My peanut chocolate was also eaten by ants at the top of plastic cabinet but it was little one that I'm planning to take to the office. You should put your food at the ref or canister if your going to eat it again later for proper storage. Ants are everywhere, they are mighty soldier of they're kind but their act is not good for human.

Funny I experienced it just recently. Ants ate one of my pills. I should take those pills daily and now I'm lacking one. I actually found myself talking angrily to the ants, asking them why they had to take the pill when there were so many other things they could've taken in my cupboard. When I moved into my current apartment there were already quite a lot of ants in certain areas. I used insecticide chalk and they disappeared. However, they keep coming back after a certain period of time so I must regularly draw lines using the insecticide chalk on the corners and nooks and crannys. Another bad experience is when my three-year old cousin whom I was supposed to be watching stepped on a mound of ants and got bitten a lot. I was 12 and was busy playing, so I didn't see where she was going. I didn't get bitten by aunts, by I got a major scolding.

The same thing has happened to me already.I stepped on a mound of RED ANTS and got bitten a lot.That was painful and itchy.That was the day I cursed all ants.Although they are examples of being industrious I still hate them because their bite is very painful.
@katcarneo (1433)

Oh that's why you hate them so much. I must admit one bite of a red ant really hurts, all the more if there are many. Fortunately, the ones I have at home are the black ones and it is commondly believed they don't bite.
• Philippines
27 Oct 11
Yes,I also believe black ants don't bite because I have never been bitten by one.Here in my place there are too many species of ants.There are common red ants,black ants,small red ants(they also bite like red ants but not very painful),big red ants(we call it antique),big black ants that are as big as antique ants.Their bite is the most painful.They fright me.:)

that's a funny experience. They are known to be the hardest working insect of all because they always look for food to store it in their place. I have not experienced such, having ants in my body because of food. But ants targeting and taking some parts of our foods normally happens. We actually have a lot of ants at home that my mom usually sprays them insecticides because it's looks so scary when there are really lots of them. Although I am fascinated looking at them when they are walking in the walls, and they seem to always greet each other.

Yes,they use their antennae and the smell they secrete to communicate to each other.

hi ferbiejohn oh yes a number of years back we lived in tempe Arizona. I was housesitting for my parents who had gone back to South Dakota. I was out in the yard and decided to weed the weeds from the graveled drive way. Suddenly I felt these sharp stings of pain and saw why.Both my hand were covered by little red ants. they were' biting me and giving off a odd scent. like formaldehyde. All of a sudden I could barely breath. I hurried in the house and asked my sister to call our doctor and tell him I was having a reaction to ant bites. he arrived a few minutes later and started an IV on me . as it dripped in my throat began to loosen up and I was breathing from the oxygen he had brought along. He told mw I had an allergic re action to all those bites. they produce formic acid in one's bloodstream. It had been my misfortune to dig in an area that 'was actually their ant hill. so I stayed away from that place for sure.

Of course! Ants, they make me work. But I am not so bothered by them. Because if they havent made me work, I would have been fatter than I am right now, not working to have them off my food. How they make me work? I just have to remember to put back the lid of the sugar jar. Put back the lids of everything. And when I think they havent got any access to anything sugary, I found them in my plain water jug. My mother in law told me to put some poison around where they may wonder. But I have a 2 yr old so she is as curious as the ants and poison anywhere in not a good idea. I find that when you wipe off what you have described as their secretion, that reduces them to keep coming back. I have also tried smearing cooking oil around the things that I want to keep them off. About your chocolate. Keep a plastic container nearby next time you want to nap and have your chocolate later. O so your bad experience was stepping on an ants hill? I would hate if that happens to me. Hmmm I wonder what will be the solution not to accidently step on an ants hill? I am quite adventurous and would not want such an incident to spoil my adventure. I think I would have to bring precautions like calomine lotion or something like that.

Ok.I'll do it next time.I will use a plastic jar. It is inspiring to hear that ants made you more responsible.:) About the colony...They can be easily distinguished.The colony of ants are just like small hills.They can be easily avoided unless you are in a hurry:)

Aw, I'm sorry about your chocolate! Ants can be real scavengers...In fact, I guess that's why they are. They'll eat anything they can find. I bet finding chocolate is like finding a pot of gold to them! Ants are the grossest bugs in my opinion. I can even tolerate spiders more than them...At least the spiders eat the other bugs and don't invade my food!
• Philippines
26 Oct 11
Yes,I think spiders are even better than ants although they are very frightening.Ants are one of the most greedy creatures.They take anything they can take.

Hi ferbjohn,its really very funny incident.Ants might be very angry on you because how come you didn't share your happiness with them.They might be watching since from very long time in sorrows,happiness...You might have shared all your bitter moments with them and when you are in a happy mood you completely neglected them and clebrating yourself...its really very bad.That might have hurted them and they took revenge on you while you are sleeping...Just kidding..Happy mylotting.

Yeah.They would have not been so angry if I shared some chocolate to them.:) But I'm afraid they will come back to ask for another chocolate again and abuse my kindness.hehe.

I despise ants. They are by far my least favorite bug. They hurt when they bite, they are tiny, their bites itch for days after, they are relentless, and worst of all they are everywhere. I just got really itchy while typing this. lol.

I hate ants because their bite is really itchy and leaves red mark.Ants are almost everywhere.They are under the trees,under the bed,under anywhere that cannot be easily found by humans.I hate them,especially the red ants.:(

I also really hate ants because there are lot of time that they disturb my sleep. I don't eat inside my bed or in my room so i'm confuse why there are lot of ants biting me when i'm sleeping or when i'm lying in my bed. I just shhhoo them away in my bed sheet until i can't take it anymore,I decided to change my bed sheet and comforter and then i found out that they make my comforter as there house so there is always ants in my bed. I really hate them. Sometimes i'm thinking what is the importance of ants..
