Players will find that ants are attracted to rotten food in the latest entry in the fan-favorite Nintendo franchise. All that you need to do is leave an item like fruit or a turnip on the ground and wait for a bit for it to rot. Ants will then come to get a meal from the rotten food. You can then utilize your net to catch the ants that you have attracted and add them to your inventory for use in whatever future endeavors you may have.
