Carpenter Ants typically set up a series of nests which are all "linked" together. This network of nests can be in series enabling foraging workers and scouts to have a place of safe haven when out and about doing their chores. This structure also helps to preserve any one colony because it's rare that all the members will ever be in one location at one time. Should any one "satellite" nest be destroyed, the other nests will usually have enough members left to enable the colony to move on and survive.

Little black ants will get in your house

Seattle residents Unpleasant Irritating Ants getting in your house or building 
The damp climate in Seattle makes for prime conditions to get ant infestations in-doors. Getting rid of ants can be a problem, because just like you they want to be where it's warm, dry and where there's lots of food. It's not at all uncommon to wake one morning to find a line of carpenter ants marching from one end of the kitchen ceiling to the other, turning to make their way toward the sink, and then down the cabinetry to that one smudge of food left in the sink before bed last night. How much fun is it to kill all those ants before work, with a line of stinky bug spray across the ceiling?

One Crafty Trick About Getting Rid Of Ants In Such A Situation
This one is better than the stinky spray across the ceiling. Of course good ant exterminators can get rid the problem for the long term. But if you wake up to the above described situation, and if you live in the Seattle area, be it Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Redmond, Samammish, Mercer island, or Tacoma, you certainly have woken up to a line of ants.
This is the trick. It does require some ant spray, but not across the entire ceiling. Get the spray and your vacuum cleaner (hopefully you don't have an upright). spray a little bug spray around the sink and wash those ants away. Then vacuum the line of ants across the ceiling. When you get to where the carpenter ants or house ants are coming into the ceiling, use a straw against the can's sprayer to concentrate the spray on that area. That will keep them from coming in at least for awhile. Of course, after this change vacuum bags. You will have been able to mostly kill ants with the vacuum, but not all.
Next you need to call an ant exterminator. An ant exterminator can get rid of all the sources of ants on your property, including black ants as well as carpenter ants and house ants, eliminating the mounds and in-wall infestations so you don't wake up to a line of marching ants again. A good exterminator will also be able to tell you if you need termite control when getting rid of the ant problem.
No matter where you are in the Seattle area ants are a problem for every one at some time during the year. Get an exterminator to get rid of your ants today!
