Filling a Hole in the Bathroom Ceiling


Hello everyone!

I recently moved into an old brownstone and realized that there is a cockroach issue in the entire building. I'm working on getting rid of them but the other night I noticed some were near the ceiling above my shower.

There is a pipe in the corner of the shower that is a couple inches thick and runs up to the ceiling. Where it connects to the ceiling there is a large gap on all sides I want to seal it.

Any suggestions? I was told steel wool and expandable foam, but want to know if that is sensible to do right above the shower where it is likely to be humid..

Picture is attached to provide reference
Thanks to all!

I'm really not sure what Cockroaches will go thru..... I would think a good bead of Silicone would do the trick.

Second silicon. Also behind that shower arm cover plate. Any opening between wall and trim (base molding, etc).
