most ants are not a danger to your worms but are attracted to the sugars of the worm food that you have placed inside the worm bin. So they are more a nuisance than posing a serious threat for your worms. Nevertheless they will compete with your worms for their food and you might have to throw more food in than you want to.
There are a few ways to get rid of the ants in your worm farm. One of those is to add plenty of water to the surface of you worm bin as ants don't like it at all. However your worm farm must have a fully functional drainage system i place otherwise your worm herd might be in danger of drowning.
