Are all the ants as heavy as all the humans?

"If we were to weigh all the ants in the world, they would weigh as much as all of the people," said a wildlife presenter recently in BBC Four's The Wonder Of Animals: Ants.

Is this statement true?

    it's difficult to count all the ants on Earth but if the 100 trillion number is true ,this state will seem legit

    Have a look at the News topic::

    ACCORDING to the Daily Star, Britain is facing an invasion of 'an army of crazed ginger ants'.

    It seems that pest experts have issued a warning over two species of Argentinian ants which are covered in red hair, love to chew wires, and can spread disease.

    Expert David Cross is quoted as saying: “Most arrive here via container ships from different parts of the world, either in food or perhaps soft furnishings.”

    it seems that Britain is also being invaded by monster venomous spiders as big as mice. This giant house spider is said to be one of the biggest in Europe. Females can lay hundreds of eggs. It is being predicted "the spiders will flock to British homes this month in a bid to take shelter from harsh weather and to start breeding."
