Default Ants!!

My wife parked in tall grass during a rainstorm, now her car is infested w/ ants.

Put ant baits inside, taking it to get detailed tomorrow.

Any other ideas?

If the ant baits and the detailing don't do it, the only suggestions I can come up with are either a bug bomb (but no idea how that would affect the upholstery), or, well, call a professional exterminator --- look at it this way: think of the good laughs he'd get!

(I'd swear we had something like this come up before; have you searched the threads?)

Actually, had a friend with a pull-along pop-up camper that parked on top of an ant hill. Had millions of the tiny things everywhere. Had to use hotels/motels for the rest of their holiday. Tried all kinds of sprays and ended up with the bug bombs to finally get rid of them.

A bug bomb from Lowes or Home Depot will usually do the trick. Just leave the windows cracked for the next few days (and keep it on the pavement). Both the smell and the bugs should be gone.

Did you not see the avatar I changed to yesterday? hahahaa

We had a rain storm today, so no detailing. I did vacuum it out and sprayed Ortho Home Defense Max on the floors.

Should work. Only sprayed carpets, no plastic.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Sorry, no offense, yours look more like a cartoon dragon to me. ...and not knowing what "fezzersc" is or meant, I thought it had something to do with that.

So many new people, change that, even some older members come here with usernames that don't make sense to anyone but the user themselves that I gave up trying to make sense of them.
