The Thursday Vent

Yesterday the Code Enforcement officer finally came out to look at our ant issue.  He was inside less than 5 minutes before he started commenting and shivering as his skin crawled.  We explained the issue and after checking out the multiple places they were he moved to out bathroom where he discovered our upstairs neighbor's toilet was leaking down on our toilet and bathroom floor. 


He went to the front office to ask them what the exterminator had said about sealing up the hole they left.  Apparently he had told them it was okay to seal it up three days ago.  But they didn't inform us of that.  Nor did they try to seal it.  So the Code Enforcement officer gave them a week to fix everything. 

Which includes:

1) Sealing the holes
2) Caulking the windows so that the ants can't come in through there either
3) Taking up the neighbors toilet to make sure nothing is growing there and fixing our ceiling.

So far they did a horrible job of fixing our hole and they only resealed the neighbors toilet, but they didn't pull up the toilet to see where the leak was actually coming from. 

Now I have to vacuum the dead ants up and see if they actually fixed the problem.  More than likely no since they didn't do everything they were supposed to do.  So now all I have to do is wait and see what happens.

Here are the before..middle..and after pictures.  Tell me...what do you think?

Before - When we discovered there were ants

Middle- The so called fix after we told them they were still coming in the apartment

After - Their method of sealing off the hole

And that ladies and gents is what I have been dealing with for the past month.  Hopefully it's enough and if not I'll be giving my Code Enforcement Officer back out here.

Thanks for reading my vent.  See ya next week.
