Please stop terrorizing us!

The ants are in our shower now. Nowhere else as far as I can tell, just the shower. Online sources point towards a nest somehwere under the house near the pipes. I have already bought little ant poison pebbles and sprinkled them around the house's perimeter, but these shower ants have somehow evaded destruction. Help! I need advice on what to try next. Roland does NOT want to call an exterminator. What other options do we have?


  1. I wish I had some good suggestions for you. Ants are the absolute worst. Screaming bloody murder seemed to scare them away 7% of the time...

    We had an ant problem at work last year. My co-worker was sure I had some sort of sweet snack hiding in my drawers that was attracting them. Only now, after he's gone did we discover that he had a cardboard box full of broken open sugar packets stashed under his desk.

  2. That agricultural extension stuff never worked for me with our bee problem. Can you sprinkle cayenne pepper in the shower during the day? That is said to ward them off.
