Why are there ants here?


Why are there ants here?

Off and on, I've been finding ants in my apartment. However, I cannot for the life of me figure out why, as I have never found them near a place with either food or water, but rather in the office, which contains books, a computer, cds, and my sewing stuff, none of which is known for being edible. I never find ants in the kitchen or bathroom, and rarely in the living room. (I do not keep or generally eat food in my office.) WTF?
Why are there ants here?



Any clues on why this might be happening or what I can do to get rid of them? I suspect they're coming in from outside near the window. I guess I'm kind of ok with sharing my office with ants as long as they don't ruin anything, but I worry about the day they find the kitchen (which hasn't happened yet, and I've been noticing them off-and-on since I moved in in May (with a break in the winter) so I guess it isn't a pressing concern). I also have a vague worry that they might eat my printer ink, but I have no justification for that except that the colored ink ran out last summer when I wasn't even using it (this could have been evaporation or "clever" programming by the printer-makers, however).

Thoughts?
