Herein, can ants live in sand?
Ants can easily find their way into your child's sandbox, because it's outside and some ants like to build homes in the sand.
Simply so, are ants attracted to sand?
Ants live to make the perfect mounds for their colony. Sandboxes also attract other insects, so they not only provide the perfect shelter for sand ants, but a stocked kitchen! Ants love to feast on pretty much anything that they can get their 6 legs on. And if they want a sweet treat, no problem.
Anthills are created as a by-product of worker ants digging subterranean tunnels. As the worker ants dig out the colony's tunnels, they dispose of the displaced earth by carrying it back out of the colony and depositing it near the entrance.
