Ants in TT


I have not used my Salem TT in over a year. Tonight, after returning from dinner, I noticed several ants around the around the entrance door ceiling.
I then took my hand and tapped the ceiling and wall between the living room and bathroom. This resulted in about 10 more ants coming out of the top of the wall from under the molding trim. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem and if an over the counter ant spray will solve the problem?

Think you may have a bigger problem than you expect, I think I would call a professional exterminator in.

A professional exterminator would certainly solve your problem but you might try a couple of foggers set off with it closed up. The problem with hand held sprays is that you can't reach the inaccesible places a fogger will get to.

I just have the house exterminator spray the RV whenever he comes around. He doesn't charge anything and I don't have to worry about it.

I had the same problem last year at a campground in CT. Ants were all over the site...and of course in the trailer. When I got home, I picked up (2) foggers and set them off with all windows and doors closed. (read the directions carefully) Bottom line was I never saw another ant in the TT

Careful with the foggers. Read the directions as to the space size they cover. They can caause damage if the space is too confined.
