In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, I have perfect peaches scattered around my entire town. On different occasions, I spot an army of ants swarming around a perfect peach. Will they eventually eat the peach or make it disappear?

    The peach was probably actually a rotten peach - the last harvest on a Perfect tree will always be two perfect fruits and a rotten one.

I left a turnip out for a few weeks, it rotted (as turnips do) and attracted ants & flies. In short, they did not consume it.

So no, ants & flies won't eat food you leave behind.

    The same applies to candy. I've never had candy disappear, despite seeing ants on it several times.
