by "sugar ant" what species are you talking about? Tetramorium? Lasius? If you don't know you can post pictures and we will ID them. It should work if they are similar in size to lasius. (and they are not too terribly different in hydration preferences)
Proverbs 6:6-11

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
