They will leave an invisible chemical trail for other ants to follow. There are many species of ants, all with their own habits and living areas. for these reasons proper identification is a must. Many ants like Carpenter ants can be very destructive to wooden structures or residential framing. These ants can be very difficult to control and professional is recommended.
