Do Sugar Ants Bite?

Answer

Yes, sugar ants do indeed bite, however the effect of their bite is not considered as severe as a bite from a fire ant. Sugar ants bite as a defense mechanism when they feel provoked or threatened. They also have the ability to spray acid from their abdomen if they are threatened or attacked by a predator. Despite their name, sugar ants are omnivorous, which basically means they eat everything, and their diet is not restricted to only sugary foods.
