Given their blurry vision, it is remarkable that ants can still carry out various tasks such as navigation in a complex terrain.

Do ants see cells?

Their ability to see details – small objects and their features – is much worse than for vertebrates like us. To suggest that animals – especially as primitive animals as ants – could see bacteria is preposterous. The wavelength of visible light is about half a micron – which is also the size of many bacteria.
