Ants coming out of my faucet!


How did you guys go from killing ants to playing Scrabble?

Place bug on block A - - Smash it with block B

Rednecks can't play scrabble - there's no apostrophe.

What a post to come home to after our office Christmas party!!!
The gel baits are good for the smaller ants. The ants are first going into the faucet, then coming out. The boric acid would only work if you hit the nest-it is a repellant. Id rather see you work with gel baits alone. Is there an access panel on the back of tub that you can remove and place bait? Otherwise, drill a small hole there and insert syringe and load it up.

Well Scratchy,
It sounds like you either have a large leak somewhere or the ants are simply crawling in the faucets looking for moisture and unaware that they are walking into a faucet.
I would make sure you have good aerator on your faucets to keep the ants from venturing into the faucets in the first place. At the end of a day you can inspect and see if indeed ants are coming in from further up the water line.
Simple,Fast, Easy...
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,

Okay CoachDave you are going to have to explain that theory to me. How is that going to be possible. So you work for Home Depot huh? That may explain it right there!
