this one is above our cabinets in the kitchen with another that looks just like it close by it’s web. Looks like they’ve been eating ants, just wondering if we should worry about them being there or not.

Looks like a Pholcidae to me, often called Cellar spiders or Daddy long-legs spiders. They are relatively harmless and great for pest control.
