Well, it's an underground movement, that's why you don't hear much about it. lol

Here is an excerpt from the Illinois Pesticide Training Manual:
"Ant's are quite variable in their feeding habits, but most of them are scavengers and predators that take advantage of situations as they occur. Soft-bodied, slow moving insects and other small animals that are poor at defending themselves-such as sod webworm larvae, small cutworms, and small grubs-will be killed and taken back to the colony for food if they are found by foraging ants."
