    Not in the kitchen where the food is or near the garbage or near the entrance by the balcony but in the master bathroom.

    I know, I know. Raid, ant traps, bla bla bla.

    What I want to know is if they climbed up several stories to get into my bath drain (and I think from the ceiling vent), are they in the attic of my building and does that (necessarily) mean they're on every floor or just the attic?

    What the fuck? :cuss: :pissed: :nag:

    But seriously. Ants will climb scores of stories. It could be the case that ONE person fucking left food out, doesn't take out the trash regularly, something died in the wall, etc, to cause your problem.

    BTW, the best ant-traps are the cheapest ones from MaxAttrax (I think that's the spelling). The fancy ones don't fuckin' work in my experience.

    They came in on you and walked to the bathroom while you were asleep.

    This happens to me every spring. Lay out lots of traps.

    Even if they were getting into your vent pipe they can't get past the p-trap. Look for a source under your sink.

    I had the same problem with spiders. Theyre probably coming up from the drain. I poured half a bottle of draino down it. No problems since.

    So it's probably not the entire building? I wonder if that shithead from Comcast left some food up there when he was here about a month ago.

    Yeah, I looked all over the vanity, underneath, etc. They could be coming in from some place between the wall and the vanity, though.

    Take a close look and see if they are wearing scuba gear, that's what they would need to get through the trap in your drain.

    I'm not a teenager, bro. I'm single and the place is entirely mine. Why would I risk injury "performing" over the bathroom vanity?
