Normally it shouldn't be a problem unless you happen to allergic to ants. If there's any doubt, have your physician check it out.  And do keep all trash, food, and garage in tight containers because that's what attracts the ants (and other insects as well as rodents) in the first place. Then you won't have to worry about being bitten or catching anything from these animals.
