Yes, from Carl Barks' "Billions in the Hole."

Barks was hardly the only comics creator to run that basic plot idea 
through it's paces. It's one of the hoariest fallback plot cliches 
around - you weren't a proper Silver Age DC character unless you'd been 
shrunk and forced to battle "giant" insects at least once.
