Might not be CAs. Could be any kind of ant. And even if it is CAs, it doesn't mean they're "doing damage."

Look to see where they're coming from. Check the basement underneath the window. Also be aware that they are ATTRACTED to light - which means that they could be coming from across the room.

Are they little tiny ants? If so, don't worry about it, they usually go away on their own. Use Windex to kill them, forget the insect sprays.

Remember, however, you're only killing the swarmers - you need to find the SOURCE to end the problem.
