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.
