Ant Bites On My Junk - Again

I think the ants are trying to eat those candy G' Strings you seem to wear.

Maybe a little less "vigorously."

Towel ants, what a pain in the ass.

I suggest you add vinegar to the wash. Ants dislike vinegar.

If the towel wasn't brown, perhaps you'd see them first?

I'm still stinging from a troop of ants that crawled across my bed a few moths ago. A couple of them got lost in the folds of the sheets and apparently liked the brush "down there". With the perpetual Bangkok sweat their campfire is still burning on occasion -even months later.

What sort of house do you live in if you get ants in your bed? Get the exterminators in and clean better.

Same same butt different for me. The bites were on my face because I have this strange habit of drying my face before drying the southern regions and then moving on to the other regions...

Wash your towels regularly and dry in the sun. In between washes, hang them so that they can dry properly. Then there will be nothing to attract the ants.

I have experienced the female equivalent while working out in the garden. More than once.. And also once a bite directly into the eye. So I know whereof you speak.

When I was bit in the eye my vision blurred and there I was trying to consult medical texts to see if there was any risk of long term damage except I couldn't read them because my vision was so blurred...and my eye in excrutiating pain. (For anyone unlucky enough to encounter this: the blurred vision will resolve fully, and you should get eye drops containing a steroid to hasten the process).

Their bites contain formic acid.

I don't get a problem with my towels up here in Isaan but ants are a problem sometimes. I guess living in a rural area that's always going to be the case but if anyone has any ideas on how to at least cut them down I would be grateful. I do remember finding white marks that looked like chalk around the legs of the kitchen table which I was told was to stop the ants getting onto the table and it seemed to work. I will try to find out what it was but I expect there will be translation problems.

I have never had ants chewing the crown jewels but before I came to Thailand I didn't know there was two types of body powder the soft and gentle babies bum powder and a red hot powder for elsewhere so far I have only been caught twice.

Well in my post #17 I mentioned something chalk like that we had round our table legs and after checking it was chalk. This seems to be backed up by your link.

Thanks

Yeah, biting ants on the towels (and inside T-shirts) that you pull from the drawer or drying rack. I've had it happen 2-3 times. Not a fun experience. My solution? Dance around and yell for awhile until the pain subsides. Then make a note: "shake everything before applying to naked body." Works for me.

My solution: Dry your stuff on a drying rack and put the 4 feet of the drying rack in cut off water bottles filled with water.

BTW Your comment heading reminds me of the "Don't touch my junk" incident in USA NOV 2010.

It is a poison chalk.

Ask for "Chawk gumjut malaeng sahp mot"

It means "Chalk eliminates cockroaches and ants"

In Thai it is ชอล์คกำจัดแมลงสาบมด You could maybe copy this to show the shopkeeper, most small shops and markets have it. 5 Baht for 1, sometimes 3 for 10 Baht

(Hopefully the mods will allow Thai script to stay as it may be useful for people to copy)
