Ants!!! - July 18th 2021, 10:47 PM

My bathroom has ants. Just the bathroom. My sister used to have this apartment and said they’d come in when it rained.
But now I have FLYING ants. I found two or three dead on my bathroom counter and just killed one.
What gives???? How do I get rid of them???

Hi!
A solution alcohol-based can work well, but you should also buy some traps for ants, cockroach and similar. If you want eradicate the problem. Is good also to close her entrance to the Anthill. If the pass, for example, into a little space between floor tiles, close the space.

I think I found a possible space, I'm going to put a trap there because I don't know how to close it.

Re: Ants!!! - July 29th 2021, 11:22 PM

When we used to have an ant problem, we had to put ant killer powder down. It's a bit messy but once you find out where they're coming from, or where you don't want them to go, you can put the powder down. It's helped us in the past both deter, and get rid of them. Again, it can be messy though.

I know you can buy ant traps as well, but I'm not too sure on how they work as we've only ever used the powder.

I got the traps but haven't put them out yet. The problem seems to be worse when it rains for some reason so I'm betting they'll be back more when it rains.

You know.. if you don't put the traps out they won't work effectively..

In all seriousness, I used to have an issue with Ants in my old house. We found out they also came more often in the rain. We had some poison on a penny and left it on the counter and eventually they stopped coming.
