I know there have been several discussions about getting rid of ants in a car, but none that really address my questions, so I’d be very grateful for some advice.
Ants have moved in to my Ford Focus–apparently from my parking lot. I’ve vacuumed and cleaned, so there is no food source, and there is definitely no water source, and I’ve tried bait traps, which are all the common things mentioned across all the discussion fora that I’ve found. Its not like there’s a total infestation of thousands, but whenever I get out of the car, I find them on anything that’s been in the car, even short rides from home to work. I’ve even found them on my child, and a friend from work. This is just bad in lots of ways!!
- Is a bug bomb advisable, or not? (I’m desperate!)
- If I do bug bomb it, should I tape over the stereo, or any other kind of protection for anything?
Of course, I’ll thoroughly clean the upholstery, carpets, and all surfaces afterward. And I’m not concerned about possible degradation of the plastics or upholstery.
Please help. I’d really appreciate answers to these, or any other relevant advice.
