Ant Senses

Can anyone expand on ant senses? Eg. Smell and sight.
I know that sight will vary depending on species, but what about smell?
Can they smell things in the wind, or are they more so only able to smell when they touch with their antenna?
Seems that they get close, touch it with antennas, bring the antenna in to clean them off, or smell?
My ants seem to do this, think about the object of inspection, and either move on, or head back for reinforcements.
The amount if excitement depends it seems not just on the food, but the demand for the food, though i could be wrong.

If you can point out an info source, or explain, that would be great.
Thank you for the info!
