Ants eating fly tying material.

Will ants get at your fly tying material?

I've moved everything to a secretary desk and the compartments aren't exactly sealed shut.  Been seeing ants on the desk.

I have never seen that happen, but possibly.  Mostly moths get in, leave their eggs, and then the larva eat everything... if anything is likely to happen. Ants might take something.
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Yeah they don't seem to be carrying anything.  I'll just use em as inspiration for an ant pattern I guess.
