How do spiders and other bugs get in my bathroom sink?
Do bugs come up from the pipes or do they fall from the ceiling to get into my sink? It sends chills up my spine just writing this.
They more than likely come in through the drain pipes. It is very easy for them to do.
Really!!!? That is gross. How do they do that!!!?
You have to realize that drain pipes are open on the other end.
Another reason not to pour grease down pipes, cockroaches love grease . I usually use Great Stuff to seal all the openings around the pipes to keep bugs out. Look from the floor up and see all the open unsealed places bugs can get in.
But...wait a minute. If there are openings to the pipes, then they should leak. Right?
Yes, the drain pipes are supposed to leak right into the sewer.
Okay. So, the spiders come from the sewer up the pipe to the sink?
They probably end up there through their normal hunting activities. Then they get stuck because they can't climb up the porcelain. We usually help them out of the sink by using a bit of toilet paper. If they're especially big, we'll relocate them outside.

Does your man (or if your a man) leave the hair mess on the bathroom counter after shaving?I find it very gross to see hair all over the bathroom sink. Why don't they clean it up when they are done?
