An ant was an insect animal native to Earth, known for being easily stepped on. (TOS novel: The Fearful Summons)

Ants can be easily scattered, but sometimes return to rebuild their nests if the queen remains. (DS9 novel: The Mist)

Ants had a social structure similar to that of the Borg, with worker drone ants laboring on behalf of the queen ant, operating almost as a single entity. After Montgomery Scott rescued James T. Kirk from the Nexus, altering the timeline, Kirk studied the Borg and compared them to ants, and Borg cubes to ant hills. (Star Trek novel: Engines of Destiny)

The arachnians resembled a cross between an ant and a tarantula. (TOS novel: Vulcan!)

Kirk once compared the miners who blew up the asteroids in the Ferrous-Asteroid Belt and carried away the pieces to "so many ants chopping away at a hill." (TOS comic: "The Trial of Captain Kirk")
