I'm orb of snow from grand nobility
Just one among a myriad entire
Then cleaved from one and now split into three
No longer snow, ablaze in raging fire

I've hewn a wretched mountain from the Earth
Erupting flowing rivers 'cross the land
I bore through skin and rob it of its worth
While leaving only dust and grains of sand

Approach, if found by pair who stand on guard
You'll face a pair of scythes to claim your soul
Yet more will rise, will surge, as one bombard
So flee, forsake the place where we patrol

A nuclear reaction, I am not
Nor meteor that screams to Earth so hot

After checking Wikipedia and seeing that they can build mounds and river-like trails, I think that this is so similar to what I had in mind that for riddling purposes I can call it a hit. Their bodies are not so clearly split into three segments or as typically red colored as those of an ant to fit the first stanza, but that's more a quantitative than a qualitative difference.
