Thanks for your honest review. I understand your concern about the unlocked door from a female's perspective. Only few female guests were sketched out by the attic though. The house is 88 years old with the structure being original and antiquated. Even the door is not compatible with any modern key and no locksmith would customize it. The only way to fix that is to change the entire door which I'm not allowed to do. Having said that, I insist that it's a very safe place and private as no one will think about going up there at any time. It's also typical of Indiana to have ants in the house in summer and they disappear completely in fall and winter. You'll surely see ants in a house this old with cracks and holes that they can travel through (again, it's 88 years old) unless you live in a modern/remodeled house with a buttoned-up structure. I'm glad most guests totally understand this fact. Also, ants are not a sign of uncleanliness while it's annoying to see them, unlike flies which I manage to keep out of the house completely. Spraying insecticide will contaminate containers, food, and harm humans more.
