The Giant Ants appeared in the book Godzilla Invades America.
The ants were tactical but ruled by vestigial instincts. Due to their cybernetics, they felt no hunger but their foraging instincts still compelled them to hoard food. This included humans who they captured alive and imprisoned within the research facility that created them. Sleeping, shrunken members of the swarm were scattered outside areas where humans were kept captive, making it impossible for anyone to leave without stepping on an ant and waking the entire group.
Size-changing technology in their cybernetics can change between the size of a normal ant to about the size of a 12 foot van. It is implied by conversation with one of the researchers held captive by the ants, Claire Detweiler, that this automatically engages if someone steps on an ant that is in their smaller form.
It is stated that their partly mechanical nature makes them unable to feel hunger or need to eat.
Vulnerability to cold
Extreme cold permanently removes their ability to change size, and shrinks them back to the size of a normal ant if they are in a larger form.
While having no need to eat, they do require sleep. This allowed their human captives to catch them off guard and escape.
