Ants in me Airstream

Hi All

Found a load of huge black ants in my airstream. Far to big to be from the UK could they be from the states?

Bout a centimetre long and jet black

Don't know about the ants. Did not see too many when I was in England. Have brother-in-law in Lands-End.

Carpenter ants ?

Yahoo! Image Search Results for carpenter ants pictures=

Could be Carpenter Ants (?) who favor moist, punky wood conditions and can really do some damage....

( "How do you know if they are carpenter ants ? Look for all the little beer cans" ! )

That's what I was going to say. I have seen them live in old trees and drop onto houses, decks, etc.
