What to do about the ants marching in to my house? And what about letting all that high-quality protein go to waste? Ergo, the tiny robotic ant roaster: a little tube with tracks, a camera or sniffer on the front and a little oven inside the tube. The cooked ants are deposited into a bag at the rear end of the tube. Yum!

       Make it such that it gives the first 5 ants a nice bit of sugar and lets them go back to the nest.
Thus, they reinforce the trail and more ants come.
Thereafter let every 10th ant go back to the nest with a sweetie to keep the interest going.
Obviously your device will be somewhat more complicated.

       So you want to eat diseased fried ants out of a robot's ass?
