Destroying many anthills

I had a dream in which I was destroying lots of anthills.

Dreams, where you attack and destroy several ant hills symbolically, represent trying to put out a lot of metaphorical fires in your life. This means that through your actions you have put yourself in a bad situation and now you must deal with the unpleasant consequences. More specifically, this vision suggests your actions were morally questionable or bordering on illegal. Because you have acted in such a way, you are now experiencing the difficult results. This should serve as a warning against future forays into unethical activities.

Red ants in daughter's hair

I dreamt of my daughter crying for an itchy head. I was shocked to see plenty of red ants on her head, maybe biting her. I rush her to a faucet and wash her head to remove all those ants. I am scared! Then I woke up.

Dreaming about red ants is a warning that should not be taken lightly. While ants are oftentimes symbolic of diligence, they can also be a sign of possible unfortunate events shortly. Your child being bitten in the dream signifies an accident or health issues which you have no control over. It is a reminder to keep your child out of harm's way. She may be experiencing troubles that you may not be aware of, hence your subconscious is alerting you to be extra observant.

Red ants on husband's head

I had a dream about seeing a lot of red ants crawling on my husband's head on top, on the right side. It seemed they weren't biting him and he did not know. He then ran into the bathroom to wash his head out. Then I got worried if any were on my head, so I did the same as he did, washed my head.

Ants, particularly red ones, are usually thought to symbolize diligence, however, they can also be a sign of experiencing hardship and difficulty. As you seemed to have taken care of the problem quickly through washing, it seems that your vision carries a little of both possible outcomes, meaning you may experience some troubles, but your work ethic and attention to detail are likely to make this a short-lived problem with only minor interference to your daily life.

Black ants in the mouth

In my dream I was walking and I felt something in my mouth and I chewed and later discovered it was ants, different types of black ants.

The presence of ants could be a fortunate sign that your hard work would be rewarded in the near future. However, since you mentioned you were chewing the ants, crushing them with your teeth, it could also mean that you are overlooking some important things in your life which could otherwise make you happier and more fulfilled, and so you must pay just as much attention to them in order to avoid possible difficulties because of your neglect. Since you already have good work principles, all you need is to be more attentive to other areas in order to be rewarded for your efforts.

Ants coming out of the body

I am a female. I dreamt that tiny ants in a large number are coming out of my body.

Dreaming that ants are crawling out of your body means you are juggling too many commitments and responsibilities. You are on the brink of a burnout or an emotional breakdown due to the amount of stress you are trying valiantly to manage from all the different areas in your life. Since you have a lot on your plate at the moment, your subconscious is basically encouraging you to slow down and try to be more realistic with your goals and your workload.

Disturbing fire ants

I dreamed I was outside with someone. There were fire ant hills. The top of one hill was covered in a ball of red fire ants. As I was looking at them, I disturbed a mound, and fire ants got into my shoe, and were biting me. I told whoever was with me "Move away, fire ants are in my shoe biting me!".

In the context of this vision, disturbing an anthill means you are about to find yourself in some serious trouble. The fire ants themselves specifically refer to getting in some type of accident or becoming ill, meaning it is likely to cause problems for your health and well-being. You may soon get into an accident while moving about your city or come down with a serious disease that would require professional medical care. Considering the large number of ants present and your warning to keep the man or woman in your vision away, it is possible that you are the only one who would suffer at this time. If you are feeling unwell, it would be wise to check with your doctor quickly to make sure that it is nothing serious or permanent.

Ants in a drink

I was drinking a cup of water and when I looked down it had a bunch of ants in it?

Dreaming that there are ants in drinking water means you have a lot of things on your mind. These concerns are likely a combination of work responsibilities and personal commitments. While most of them are well within your capability to handle, the amount of issues you deal with on a daily basis is starting to tire you out. Alternatively, you could be feeling anxious about annoying or petty things happening around. Instead of focusing on the big picture and important tasks, you are restless, antsy and easily riled up by things that are beyond your control.

A child covered with ants

A small child covered in ants, blocked airways. No one was helping except me.

Ants are normally considered a symbol of diligence and responsibility, and they shed light on your tendency to be a hard-working, reliable individual. However, in this vision the ants are suffocating a young child. This suggests you are working very hard to the extent that other areas of your life are suffering. Perhaps it is your relationships that have been neglected as you try to get everyday tasks accomplished in reality. Your efforts to help the child in your vision further speak of your desire to jump in and take on more work. In this case, the best thing you can do is to concentrate on your loved ones and not overwork yourself so that you can be fully present in their company.

Squishing fire ants

I dreamed I was sitting maybe at a restaurant with my husband and son. There was a little pile of something on the table. Then 3 fire ants started walking out of the pile. My husband's finger squished them. Then one more came out, I told my son to squish it, he did. I didn't feel any sort of way, just that they had to squish the fire ants. We got up and left. I went out the door, then there were 2 more doors to exit. There was 3 doors to the outside, I opened 2 of them and went out.

Regardless of the kind of restaurant you were in, in general this scenery is suggestive of financial troubles in the near future. You may lose a source of income or have to deal with an unexpected expense that you have little to no savings for. The fire ants represent the other issues that would pop up due to this situation. For example, having to suddenly repair something expensive could mean you do not have enough money to pay a certain bill or afford all your groceries. Squishing each ant literally refers to the little fires you would have to put out in order to make it through this month and even the next. Leaving the restaurant may mean you would find a solution to your issue on your own, such as by selling something or cutting expenses elsewhere, or that you would receive help from someone who supports you in reality.

Ants coming out of mother's neck

Ants coming out of a scab in my mother's neck while we were at church. My estranged son was there. His grandpa was there, they are both pastors in real life. I looked over at my mom's neck and ants started crawling out of a scab in her neck. I wasn't upset, I just told her to go to the bathroom and fix it. Some lady came up and I told her. She said oh well it's probably, said what it was and I couldn't understand. Then she said they will probably check you for it be careful.

The neck usually represents the divide between reason and emotion. Meanwhile, the ants symbolize hard work and a goal-oriented attitude. To see those ants coming out of your mother's neck indicates an impaired judgement. You, or someone you know, could be too engrossed in your own affairs that you fail to see how your actions and attitude affect your loved ones. The scab probably points to a long-running issue in your household which would once again create problems. Achieving balance in your perspective and gaining clarity would entail recognizing other people's opinion and respecting their emotions. This message may be directed to your mother, yourself, or both. This likely requires some introspection to determine the person expressing reluctance towards a possible reconciliation.

Ants underneath the carpet

I dreamt that I lifted up my carpet and there was a bunch of ants underneath it.

While this vision may seem a little gross or unsettling, it has a vaguely positive interpretation. The carpet from your dream represents financial security or an increase in wealth. You may soon get some extra money or find another source of income that would improve your circumstances. The ants, however, suggest that in order to fully reap the benefits of this situation you would have to move or do something inconvenient, like deal with a lot of red tape.

Fire ants and a friend dying her hair

I dreamed I saw 3 fire ants moving away from me, I saw a coworker younger friend in my dream. She has dark black hair, in the dream she was getting a little older, and was coloring her hair silver. She got it a little too bright, so was re-doing it a softer silver. She was very friendly as always.

This dream contains three major symbols with very similar meanings. These are the fire ants, the number three and the black hair that turns silver. In essence, all of these symbols predict having to deal with some trouble or inconvenience that could become beneficial to you if you put a lot of time and effort into it. For instance, you might have to deal with annoying co-workers or cohabitants who do not pull their weight in order to finish a major project in time. Although you would suffer and even feel like giving up at some points, pushing through would greatly improve your situation.

Ants inside a hole in the ground

Dreamt about sitting on the ground. I saw a hole and there were many black ants inside. They did not come out. I am a female aged 32.

Black ants are a symbol often associated with bad luck, particularly in many small matters. For instance, you might get a ticket, stub your toe and forget to get something from the grocery store all in the same day. The hole itself suggests some personal responsibility is the cause, like not making a list or checking the parking rules before leaving your vehicle. The best way to mitigate periods of bad luck like this is to avoid getting involved in extra activities and play it safe when it comes to following rules or unwritten social contracts.

Being bitten by ants while in water

I was in water and small black ants biting my hand and I was trying to get them off in the water. They were biting my right hand as well as left hand while I was trying to get them off. Their bites were painful.

Being bitten by black ants and feeling the pain from their bites portends soon becoming the victim in an unfortunate accident. You would have absolutely no control over this situation, adding to the frustration and sadness you feel. The hands themselves could mean one of two things. Either this accident would affect your health, like a car accident or sudden illness, or it would refer to a goal you are trying to achieve. In the latter case, something or someone may prevent you from succeeding in your plans, possibly causing you great distress.

An older man being bitten by fire ants

I dreamed I looked down and there were hundreds of fire ants on the floor, and some were biting me. I moved away and there were still fire ants covering the floor everywhere. There was an older man, I didn't know him, and he was barefoot standing in the fire ants. I told him to watch out, they were biting, but he didn't seem to understand or care. Later, I saw him, and he showed me his foot and said they bit him. I saw the ants had left little holes in his foot. I don't know where this was at.

The fire ants in your dream allude to extreme dissatisfaction or restlessness. It can also be a projection of your impatience due to the slow progress of your projects or delayed plans. Meanwhile, the unfamiliar older man who was standing barefoot over the fire ants refers to another restless person in your social group. This person is much more impatient and ill-equipped to handle delays and roadblocks. Perhaps your subconscious is encouraging you to reach out to this person and help them manage their expectations before they do something that will jeopardize the entire project or venture.

Ants building a nest inside your body

The image of ants building a nest within you is sure to leave you feeling disturbed and possibly violated. This is doubly true if you could feel the moving and crawling over you and covering your body as well. In Eastern cultures, this symbol is usually linked to work. It portends co-workers grouping together to make your life difficult. In many scenarios, it means your enemies would team up to spread rumors, pile on extra work or discredit the good work you have done thus far.
