  • Renting and ant infestation

    I have these cunts in my unit and the real estate are refusing to do anything about it.

    They are eating fucking everything, biting the shit out of me and generally making life really shit.
    Where do I stand on this?

        Firmly.

        Any problem relating to the condition of the house is up to the agent to fix on behalf of the owner (hence them employing a property manager) if it is affecting you living comfortably in the property. I killed off ants in my rental for the tenant, as I am going to be moving in and didn't want them either. My pest inspector picked it up, advised me on what could be done, and I did it. Tax deduction anyway.

        Give 'em hell.

            Have you found out where they are coming from ?

            Good old boiling water in the nest slows them the fuck down.

            Surface spray can also deter them.

            And if they do as the wiki says and fuck up the structure then it is the real estate agents job to sort that shit out.

              Property for Rent Pest Control and Who is responsible?

              Borderline.

              Unless you have somehow caused the infestation (good luck proving that you haven't - if they're eating your stuff maybe your stuff being there is the cause of the infestation? ) I'd say that would tend to indicate that the landlord is responsible.

              But it also looks like it's not conclusive.

              Unless you feel like lawyering up, I'd say its time to find somewhere else.

You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                      The only thing that has really been effective on our coastal ants is Amdro Amdro Granular Ant Bait - Masters Home Improvement. It is bloody expensive ~$80 for a decent size container, but it really does work. Need to be very careful around kids though.

                        I believe you stand firmly in the whinging pom camp on this one.


                        If I was you I would watch the Alien Quadrilogy, shrink myself down to ant size, enter the queens lair with some sort of tiny Flamethower (which you could either have already shrunk down with you or have built once shrunk to save on parts), and then when the ants go near something you love yell "get away from that you bitch!" and flame away.


                        Option 2 would be to dig a tiny moat all the way around your place, fill it with honey, and every time an ant gets caught say something witty like " Its seems you have been trapped by your greed my little friend, oh you can struggle all you want but your colony cant help you now" Try stroking a small animal while you say this and then laughing manically.

                        Option 3 is to of course get some ant spray but thats boring.
