How can I rid my home of fireants?

I have been fighting fire ants in my entire home all summer long. I have gotten rid of all of them except in my master bathroom. I can't find out where they are coming from. There is no trail and there is no nest or mound under the home. I wonder if they are in the wall behind the bathtub because the only place we see them is in and around the bathtub.


We would recommend using Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait in the wall void and other cracks or crevices to control the fire ant infestation. Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait has two active ingredients, hydramethylnon to help kill the ants and methoprene to sterilize the queens and prohibit normal growth of juvenile ants. Extinguish Plus is one of the most effective fire ant baits on the market and most folks see results within just a few days. Apply 0.25 - 0.5 ounce (2 teaspoons – 1 tablespoon) per crack, crevice, or other inaccessible areas where ants are entering the structure or where ants are nesting.
