Killing Harmful Insects

In our village, ants abound in unbelievable masses; they damage our food and our clothing, not to mention harming our own bodies. May we kill them, and how should we do that? Is this a trial for us? And if so, how can we ward it off?

If the situation in your village is as you have described, you may kill them by any means available to you other then burning them with fire. No doubt, this is a trial, one that necessitates your turning to Allaah Almighty and repenting to Him.
