Some species will dig into the wood of your home, while others might chew on cables and damage them.

If you spill anything containing sugar or honey, you need to clean it up quickly, since it is one of their favorite things. Anything sweet should also be kept in well sealed containers.
If you have soda cans or other items that contain sugar in your recycling bin, you should make sure that it is sealed well so the ants can’t access them.
