Ants are "social" insects - they live together. As such, one can be found close to another.
Biologically the ants are made larger by the effects of the virus, and their jaws are strong enough to cause pain to passing humans. Alexia Ashford, as 'queen' of the Antarctic ants, demonstrated an ability to control these ants.
A tropical species of ant was infected with the T-Veronica virus in 2002, in South America.
