    What am I missing ? I reluctantly (due to excessive price) got all 4 ants, and placed them randomly throughout the town. When the mechanical ant icon showed up in the task bar, it allowed them to attack the school while Bart had the controller in his hand. Great ! But now what ???

    I would have thought it would be a permanent task option for Bart, but no - the ants just sit there and don't animate, they just emit a sound when tapped.

    Is that it or did I miss something ?

    It is a permanent task. Command Mechanical Ants, it's a 10 hour task for Bart


    Mine are camped out near Death Mountain feeding on shrubs until their master calls them to wreak havoc again.

    I really like the ants. Can't wait to start putting out my Halloween Decos. This task will be never ending when Bart's not in use. Hopefully they will give them their own jobs for Halloween.

    Is it wrong I want these in real life as well heh.

    Also love the animation. I bought all as gotta have the whole set. One is currently eating out of homers ice cream truck. the rest are scattered around like at the movie theater. Power plant and one somewhere.

    Happy tapping.

    Am I right to assume that each ant has a set place on top of the school? Not sure if I want all but maybe the first and fourth to kind of make a nice set.

    I eventually had the task added to Bart, but it showed up well after getting the ants which made me wonder how in the world to get them to animate after the first time which was automatic. Thanks for the replies !

    Hi, I know this must be somewhere but I'm really sick & recovering from surgery so I'm just gonna annoy people by asking: Do you get anything for the ants aside from the tiny increase and 10 hour job with Bart? I haven't seen the movie "Them" and they seem pretty useless to me but I just would like to make sure I haven't missed something obvious. Sorry.

    Thanks for the help.

    The ants attack the school but that's barts 10 hr task, there is a chance in the future of EA maybe adding more buildings to attack but we won't know in till EA does it.
