    Ugh, we all know I have a rat problem. Yes it's still going on, and like 2 hours ago a rat got on the trap, and still manage to move it around and now I have no clue where the heck it went. I am more paranoid than ever, but life goes on...

    Until I realized I also happen to have an ant problem. See I don't know how, I don't know why, and I don't know where from, but there are so many friggin ants.

    They've made there way into my LCD computer monitor, so when I'm on the computer you'll randomly see some ant working it's way around my computer screen, or walking around the bunch of papers I have on my computer desk, on the keyboard.... and yeah. :-?

    There also in the damn bathroom, and happen to once in a while get on the toothpaste tube, and unfortunately the toothbrushes (ugh!)....

    Worse is that they somehow manage to get into my laptop; and usually the only time I bring out my laptop at home is to charge it. I'll be sitting in class and then the ant will be walking just above the keyboard, and I have to remove it quickly and it's friggin embarrassing........

    I've got a couple crawling on my forearm..... :rubeyes:

    So er, guys and gals any tips/ideas/advice? :|

    The first sign of ants spray poison all over where they are coming from. Don't let them take hold and move in.

    A good cat will not only kill the rats, it will remove any traces. They even lick up blood.

    Fix the foundation of the building. Dump poison around the foundation.

    I once knew a guy who had a unique living situation. I once even was inside his place. It was .........disorganized.

    My favorite observation was when using his bathroom and looking over into the originally white combo shower/tub. On the bottom were two oblong white spots where his feet were positioned when he showered. The rest a near black gray.

    I struck me as funny because I move around and shower my back also. The spots were positions at only one angle.

    Get some Raid for the ants.

    My other suggestions is to look for a new place!

    I have the "best" solution to your ant problem, use comet (cleanser) and sprinkle it around the baseboards and everywhere you see them, they will disappear. It wont kill them but they wont come back either. Also sprinkle some in cabinets. Let me know if it works for you...

    But the rat problem I just couldnt tolerate, I would move, but seems like you are in a situation where you cant. Your landlord wont do anything about these problems for you?

    Good Luck!!

    I found that a combination of ant spray and Terro Liquid Ant Baits knocks em right out.
    We had a bunch of those big black ones getting in the house this past fall.

    Yeah, our area flooded and we got rats. We hired an expert, and set up a contract for $30/mo to get rid of everything, rats, ants, etc. Let someone else deal with your problems.

    Sung to the Elvis song, "In the Ghetto"

    Just another of Allabout's New York rants,
    now his dang computer has got ants, in da ghetto.
    And poor Allabout crys.
    Cause he allready had trouble wit big old rats
    and someone here told him to get some cats, in da ghetto.
    People don't cha understand, poor Allabout needs a hand
    He's turned into an angry young man today.
    Take a look at you and me
    we're all filled wit pity
    Should we simply turn off the puter
    then laugh, and walk away?
    As allabout's stomach turns.

    As the infestation gets even worse
    it makes Allabout just swear and curse in da ghetto
    He don't know what ta do.

    He gets on da phone calls da ORKIN man
    and sits and watches for da bug-man's van,in da ghetto
    But he never shows

    Da slumlord won't do a gol-dang thing
    we all think the guy should be sent straight to sing sing, in da ghetto
    And Allabout still sits and cries

    Still waitin' for more of Allabaout's rants
    hope his problems end wit the gol-dang ants
    in da ghetto!
    :thumbsup:
    I know this won't help, but maybe it will make you laugh!
