ANTS!

It's that time of year again in Pasadena and the ants are going a bit crazy.  There are about 10 on the floor in the ATF, and no doubt there will soon be about 1e6 of them.  Do we have a standard ant removal scheme for cleanrooms?  The stuff I use at home is a spray and probably not very nice for optics.  We could use some of the slightly illegal ant chalk I guess.

 Steve has the cleanroom janitor mop the 40m floor in the LVEA/IFO room with diluted ant poison.
