Ants live in colonies consisting of an egg-laying female (queen), short-lived males, and workers (sterile females). The ants you see foraging in your garden or kitchen are workers. Workers that find food communicate with other workers by depositing a chemical message on the ground as they crawl back to the nest. Although we cannot smell it or see it, this "pheromone trail" survives for long periods of time and enables other ants find the food at the end of the trail. There could be hundreds more hiding in the walls, attic, crawl space and other places.
Fortunately, ant problems are entirely controllable under professional care. However, the quality and price of service you will receive varies widely from company to company.

What About Carpenter Ants
Carpenter ants can cause extensive damage to your home's infrastructure. For every carpenter ant you see, there could be hundreds more hiding in the walls. Carpenter ants damage wood and insulation by excavating tunnels, and they are capable of causing more harm to your home than even termites.
