Ants. Carpenter ants?

I keep seeing ants in my house, mostly in the living room on the wall toward the ceiling. I assume they’re coming in through the roof somehow? I don’t know if they’re carpenter ants or not, but I suspect. I’ve seen a few bigger ants in my house recently than these ones, but these aren’t the tiny ones. They’re probably about a quarter of an inch long, I think. They’re black. I put a granule around my house, and a little on the roof, and ever since I’ve seen 10-30 ants in my living room during a day’s time. I’ve been killing them, which they say not to do because of the pheromones. But I can’t help it. I feel like I need to stay on top of these ants so they don’t find something to eat in my house and stay forever. I’ve only seen singles wandering around until today when I saw about 6 ants all walking on the wall in a group. I killed them all and vacuumed up the bodies. I’ve only lived in this house since December, so I don’t know if ants were a problem before.

My question, what can I do? Is my house doomed? Somebody help me. I freaking hate ants. And I’m so sick of seeing them.

fire ants are scooped into a new home

Fire ants float on the surface of water inside a bucket and are subsequently scooped into a clear plastic bin where they will be kept in a lab. Notice how the ants hang off the edge of the ladle used to scoop them up. Visit for more information and be sure to check out my other uploaded videos
