ant coming through basement drain
Posted by maureen on February 17, 19100 at 13:40:17:
Last fall we had a huge problem of ants coming in through the bathtub drain in our basement. How is this possible? The year before they came into the bathroom along the side of the tub where it meets the wall on the drain side of the tub. We were thinking that maybe we would have to remove the tub inorder to find how they are getting in. But talking to another homeowner about this problem they said that they had heard before of ants and other bugs coming into your basement via a bathtub drain? How do they get into the drain? Do I have a leak in the pipe somewhere I am unaware of that they have found access through? What do I do? Do you suggest removing the tub? Thank you for your help?
