A woman from Offenburg, Germany has been kept up at night by ants triggering her doorbell.

The 75-year-old became so frustrated at being unable to identify a human culprit that she called the police, reports Metro.

Puzzled officers carried out a full investigation, believing the noise to be the efforts of a prankster, before discovering that it was actually an ants' nest that was causing the problem.

A colony of the insects had constructed a large nest inside the bell's mechanism, which pressed the switch elements together.

The police disassembled the doorbell and removed the nest, solving the problem and allowing the resident to finally get some rest. :sleep2:

Always fun when the fix is to burn it, more so when you've set the fire alarm on fire :D

Nah I just took the battery out, cleaned it off, left it down...and left the battery out for a few years. (We have many others.)
