Was someone having a picnic?

A resident was disturbed to see "a lot of big ants" at lift lobby A of Block 213 Marsiling Crescent on Wednesday (Nov 9).

Stomper Danny shared a video of the ants crawling all over the tiled floor in front of the lift.

"This is not the first time this happened," he said.

"I am not sure what happened that we have so many ants. I hope the town council can check on this issue."

In response to a Stomp query, a Marsiling-Yew Town Council spokesman said: "The town council did not observe any ants when we conducted a site inspection on Nov 10.

"Our appointed pest control contractor will inspect and carry out treatment on Nov 12 to further resolve this issue."

This is the second time in three months that a Stomper was bugged by insects on the ground floor of an HDB block.

On Sept 23, Stomper Terence took a video of dozens of dead and live cockroaches around Block 120C Canberra Crescent.

The Sembawang Town Council said the presence of the cockroaches was due to routine fogging.
