Awesome Ants was the sixth short story that appeared in the book Still More Tales to Give You Goosebumps.
It features Dave who starts a science project revolving around ants, and the company he purchases from is called Awesome Ants. Not satisfied with regular ant food, he resorts to feeding them other things like hot dogs or worms and this eventually backfires on him. The ants grow to incredible proportions and one of them drags him off. The next thing he knew, he woke up in a world where the roles have switched, where ants are the dominant species and humans are miniature insects.
