|Halacha - squashing an ant|
|Submitted by ROLAND SEENER Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
You may kill an ant if it disturbs you even though it causes no physical pain.
It is forbidden to eat an ant like all other insects, but it is not one of the 8 sheratzim that renders one tameh through touching it.
