Fire Ants on a European Mount

Will Fire Ants clean a skull out? I've considered using beetles but I don't have any and seem to have an unwanted supply of fire ants every ten foot or so in my yard.

but if you can find a red ant nest they will do it alot faster.dont know if you have those kind of ants where you are or not. but if your in texas they shouldnt be to hard to find!

if you will build you a box that will cover the whole head and horns,the fire ants will build their nest up around the entire skull.Also this will prevent any unwanted weathering to the horns.
