| ||For an overview of ant nectar in the Fallout series of games, see ant nectar.|
Ant nectar is a chemical naturally produced by giant ants. When you consume the nectar, it grants you +4 Strength, but inflicts a penalty of -2 to Charisma and Intelligence. If taken in excess, you can get addicted to it, though the chance of addiction is very small. Taking 7 doses in a short amount of time is relatively safe, however the eighth dose will have a 100% addiction chance due to the UMON effect.

There is an unused script in the GECK that induces an effect called "ant vision", which was to be activated by eating ant nectar. It tints and blurs the screen and does not seem to wear off.
