They'll all suck in water...

..and share it, but I don't know that they'd be wasteful and leave it in the environment around them vs. holding it and sharing it with each other.

I missed the bit about the ants being tiny first go around - they like to burrow through the polymeric sand in my pavers. I wouldn't be surprised to find that yard pros put borax in water that they're going to use to set the sand (I will next time).

Otherwise, I've noticed that I can get any ants to suck sugar and borate and water out of a paper towel - presumably to transport it.
