It depends on the kind of ant it is. Fire ants or larger ants like carpenter, can def harm your gecko. But the tiny black ants should not be a big deal, as long as you are finding them in miniscule amounts. If you are still worried you can use ant bait traps. Just do not use any escaped crix that you find on the floor as they might have worked their way into one of the traps. We found tiny black ants in our one crested geckos cage every once in awhile (prob from cork bark). However it was no big deal and I am sure you will be fine also =).
