Ants are social insects, which means they live in communal colonies together.  They work together to maintain and grow the nest. They communicate by using a series of chemicals called pheromones. Once they find something they like such as a piece a food they lay down more and more scents to indicate to the rest of the colony what they found.  Soon reinforcements will gather and harvest their found bounty.
