Red Ant nests are fairly common throughout the region and in a survival situation they're a very good find.

The ants are edible and the eggs are as well. The eggs are about 12% protein. They're low in fat. The are high in iron. They also have calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus and three of the B vitamins: B1, vitamin B2 and B3 (Niacin).
