what are ant engines good for?

Sorry, I can't resist...

This same question was asked years ago, back in 2014 as a matter of fact!
This was my reply. ;)

 

 

Ants, of course!

Would you come out ahead using 5 Ants instead of a Spark?  The latter would be the same mass but higher thrust and ISP, I think.

I think the only good reason to use 5 ants instead of 1 Spark is if you want to use them for lander legs as well as engines. They're good for that on very small vessels.
