They will often seek entry to establish their satellite colony through the many entry points such as window sills and door gaps. The ay to resolve this issue is through caulking and installing door seals.

One notable example of ants establishing colonies in residential properties are the carpenter ants. These carpenter ants flock to places where there is wood and moisture so that they can carve up intricate galleries and rooms for their workers, nestlings, and queens that reign over these structures.
