Desert ants and reptiles?

Im trying to build a desert bioactive home for my beardy but im finding mixed answers on a good cleanup crew. Ive heard that ants are one of the main cleaners in the desert, so i guess my question is, would adding ants to my set up even be plausible?

Thank you in advance!

I am a really experienced reptile keeper and unfortunately say no. Your bearded dragon can eat them and even get sick. It will also be harder to take care of them both since ants need different requirements than bearded dragons. Hope this helps :P Ant love forever!!!
