Ants cannot eat wood as do termites because they can't digest cellulose. Some ant species will eat a variety of foods, and others will eat only from a narrow range of foods. Food preferences can change, depending on the specific needs of the colony. Foraging ants will typically bring back proteins to the queen or queens during periods of high egg production, then switch back to sugars or greases as a maintenance for growth or larvae growth. Once a food source is found, they will lay down a hormone called a pheromone to serve as a chemical trail so that other ants can find their way to and from the food source.

Ants are social insects that live in colonies and are some of the most successful insects. Ant colonies include one or more queens, as well as workers, eggs, larvae, and pupae. The worker ants maintain their developed structures known as nests. Nests protect the ants against their enemies, offer some protection against extremes of weather, and often are placed close to water and food sources. Some ant species nest in the ground, often times under concrete or slabs. Some species are found in wood, such as fence posts, dead logs, hollow trees, or within buildings. Termites are also found in wood, but their damage will be a lot more extensive because carpenter ants will only dig out or hollow out a cavity known as a nest gallery.
