When removing ants, the primary focus should always be to get to the root of the problem and remove that first. The root of any problem is the colony itself. As is well known by most people, ants are social creatures that live in colonies. Throughout the day they wander out away from the colony to scavenger the local area. Attempting to kill ants while they are away from their colony will often serve as a futile endeavor and will only provide a temporary fix to the larger issue which is the nearby ant colony itself.
Ants may enter your house foraging for food or seek shelter. Understanding the behavior of ants will help you with the recommended ant control procedures outlined here. Ants enter through the smallest openings, foraging for water or food. They are in search of either sweet based food or protein/grease based foods. Once the ants find a food source, they will leave a pheromone trail for other ants to follow.
