Question Feeding

The occasional ant falls into my fish bowl, he loves to eat them. Even snatches some of them before they fall into the water. Is this okay? I know they eat insects and small crusteceans in the wild but I worry about pestacides and other harmful chemicals around, I live in a small town surrounded by farms, and my landlord uses weed killer a LOT. Because apparently if it isn't grass, it isn't aloud to live.

I would be very careful if the ant has pesticides! As it may harm your fish. But if you are 100% sure it is ok I think it is ok...

Usually if the bug is still alive and acting normal they are pesticide free-if they are acting strange-like walking in circles, spinning...etc....might be a problem
