Status Least Concern

Ants are a species of wingless vespoid indigenous to the province of Skyrim. Swarming detritivores by nature, they can be found crawling over decaying matter, especially logs and dead wood, in the warmer parts of Skyrim. The higher races of Nirn seem completely uninterested in them, and they are not considered useful for collecting as reagents or ingredients in anything.

Known colonies of ants exist around Cracked Tusk Keep, Falkreath, Lakeview Manor, and at least two colonies or one large colony has been noted around Riverwood.
