I think I ate red ants by mistake.....

Recommended Posts

My apartment has red ants in a few places and I think I ate a couple by mistake (in my food). Should I be concerned?

 

I feel fine but I am a little concerned.

 

Also, how to get rid of these things?

 

I bought ant poison (little plastics containers) and have several of them around. It seem to only be making a small difference.

 

Thanks in advance.

probably only begin to worry. 

 when you begin to think you are now eating poisoned ants that were still crawling... very slowly

So you got a little protein in your diet today. Good for you. I hear they taste like chicken. How to get rid of them is something I cannot help you with. Wipe everything with bleach. You need to remove their trail. Lots of poison, and a few freelance geckos can help.

I sprayed some powerful glass cleaner on an infestation of critters recently. A few days of this treatment and they were gone. Very clean surface after that too, 555.

Remove left over food, tiny parts too and they will be gone.

My former Thai GF ate them all the time. She said they were "bee ow" or sour.

Ants are food too. Thai eat them, or at least their eggs...

You don't sound very "Alpha" worried about eating a few ants. From experience I'd be more worried about them climbing up my leg. Little bastards...

 

Nothing worse than following your mates through the undergrowth and hearing a guy up front yell in an exited voice, "Mot Daeng"

There is an “ant chalk” available at most Chinese goods shops in Bangkok for about 10 baht. Trace around where walls meets floors, door jams and the like. Be creative. Neither ants nor cockroaches will cross the line. Ever. You’re welcome.
