All ants in the colony are ladies, so what you saw wasn't a torn "family" with a mom and a dad, but a colony that underwent partial/total destruction. Unless you killed the queen, though, you're most likely still going to have a problem. Also, if it will make you feel better, that little lonely ant was probably just doing nature's instinct and cleaning up the mess. If you still feel bad, do try the cinnamon as was commented earlier, it may work!
Lol so you sprayed and watched them die. Haha.
I figured I'd make a comment because the above ones are getting buried and that ant' cool. Here I was, thinking I was the only one that felt sympathetic to things like ants. One time at a Christmas tree farm, there was 1 poor little tree left after Christmas was over and I felt so bad for that little tree that I bought it just to ease my guilty conscience.
More then cradling it, it was more likely trying to carry it to eat it lol
I never said they didn't carry the bodies away. I said they didn't eat them. Dunno why I got thumbed down for that. I thought it was fair point to make. People (just look at some of the comments here) assume insects are just dumb little things... but they have hierarchies, and family systems, and all sorts of cool little instincts and rules (like not eating their dead). Hell, certain types of ants have even been known to keep other insects inside the nest so they can breed/milk them (so they have a constant food source). Insects are pretty cool.
Dont worry it was most probably carrying that body to eat it later. Ants are heartless, vile creatures.
Just face it OP you're a monster. Once you've come to terms with that you can continue on in life as a happy ant murdering psychopath.
I thought the point of the movie was in the world you must act a certain way and fit a social standard, making everyone the same person. Look at the scene with the business cards. This congruency leads people to simply not have a clue that things outside the mold, even such gruesome things as murders. The movie was more about the shallowness of society than anything. At least that's my opinion of it.
Whenever you feel something on you but you can't see it, or don't know what it is...just know those are the spirits of the ants. They will forever haunt your life for what you did to them.
You know this saying, "You'll always live on in my heart"? It presents an easy solution for OP's problem, in that he just has to kill every ant that ever knew one of the previous victims. If you kill all the members of a civilization, then noone will be left to remember or attempt retaliation.
