Do you have P. platyrhinos?

All HLs do eat ants to some degree, and most mainly eat harvester ants, as a major part of their diet. The short horn species from higher elevation also eat ants, but are thought to sustain more on other invertebrates than some other HLs. There are high elevation ants that they will eat however. I would question any information which cast doubt upon HLs eating ants. This is simply not true. Even the mountain species will eat ants.

If you have platyrhinos, then they definitely are primarily ant eaters.

What matters most is the particular kind of ant. Some species of ants may be refused or less preferred by some species of HL.

Best thing I can tell you is see my links where you can download the material and you can ask me specifics from there.
