Today when I went I picked up my yearling from his outdoor enclosure, I noticed he had tiny red ants all over him. They were super small, like the size of sugar ants that you get in your house. Do I need to worry about these?

I read that you and use food grade diatomaceous earth. However, I have a bunch of food & grass growing for them in their enclosure. Would this still be safe?

What should I do? Do I even need to worry about the ants?
