Ants were a family of insect native to Earth.
Ants were used as food in the Roman Empire. While near Rome in 64, the First Doctor and his companions enjoyed a meal which included ants' eggs in honey prepared by Barbara Wright. (TV: "The Slave Traders") In Pompeii in 79, Lobus Caecilius ordered Rombus to get some ants in honey with a dormouse. (TV: The Fires of Pompeii)
In 1190, Ibrahim tried to force Ian Chesterton to reveal where his money was hidden by staking him in the desert and daubing him with honey to attract ants. As the ants gathered, Ian pretended to cooperate before overpowering his captor. (TV: The Crusade)
In the 1970s, ants were among the species of insects which grew to giant size due to exposure to an improperly mixed pesticide spray. They were returned to their normal size by the Third Doctor. (COMIC: Insect)
