salvidor dali used ants as a symbol of decay. I thought it was on homage before I read your caption. :)

Dali and ants.
Combinations (or The Combined DalHnian Phantasms, Ants, Keys, Nails), 1931
Ok, I got this quote about Dali from this site :
"One other childhood incident of note included a wounded bat. It was kept in Dali’s washhouse hideaway and stayed there overnight. When Dali returned to it was being devoured by a mass of ants. He impulsively bit into the seething mass delirious with pleasure."
I don't know if this is true - you never know with internet sources. But I got to say that that's a bit extreme. Interesting though.
