Also question is, how do I get rid of ants in my bathroom sink?
If you already have ants in your bathroom drain, you can clean out the drain to get rid of them. Pour ½ cup of baking soda down the drain, and then pour ½ cup of white vinegar down the drain. The mixture will bubble and foam, cleaning out the residue that is lining the drain pipes.
Similarly, why do I have ants in my sink? Ants love moisture, so it's only natural for them to gravitate towards places with water. If your kitchen sink has wood components, some ants may chew through it to make their nests. Some ants also stay at the bottom of the sink because it's both wet and cooler there.
can ants come in through the sink?
The sink drain might be the last place you expect to find ants, but plumbing areas can be enticing to the pests. Food and grease buildup inside drains and pipes attracts ants to the steady food supplies.
