The short answer is that you inadvertently created an attraction by making food and water accessible and by having ways the ants can get to them. An ant can enter your house through unbelievably tiny cracks in its search for food. They leave a chemical scent trail that other ants follow when food is discovered. Lawn irrigation can attract colonization under the grass and poorly stored garbage will attract ants who then explore ways to enter your home. Ant colonies can number from 300,000 to over 500,000 and have a lifetime of up to 15 years. However, even large colonies can relocate quickly if their survival is threatened.
