  2. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. As far as I'm concerned, no thank you!

    Use of ants as a suture material = Ant suture
    • Large ants or beetles were put on wounds so that their jaws would clamp together the wound edges.
    • The insect heads were twisted off.
    • The fixed jaws firmly held together the wound edges.

    This ancient method was
    the predecessor of modern
    wound clamping.

  3. Have you thought about the bacteria or viruses that might be present on the ants?

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
