I have pavement ants and large piles of dirt were found under my toilet and bathtub when they were uprooted for a bathroom renovation. Is there a way to get rid of them once and for all? Every time I fix something in my bathroom I find evidence of their existence.

First you need to locate where the ants are entering your house. I am attaching several links to Fact Sheets that discuss life cycle, identification, and control measures. If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
