Ants!

Ok, so my Jeep has ants.... Little brown ants. I don't see more than one or two at a time, and I don't see them every time i get in, but I see them enough that it is starting to make me think it is not coincidence. Sometimes I see them on the inside, sometimes not. I don't know where they are coming from, but i sure as hell am going to kill them all!

Time for some creative ant killing...

Windex will get rid of them. Just spray it where ever you see them. Usually they are attracted to either food - could be something small like a dead bug or something big like a ham sandwich under your seat - or water. The colony sends out scouts - seen in ones or twos - and they draw the path chemically to lead the rest to the find. Use windex to kill them and the trail.

Tiny is using her head! You could always drive it straight into a lake, ants float away. PROBLEM SOLVED!

Ok, I will try that, but I am going to mix some alcohol in with it to make it a flammable Windex gun Ants must die!

Seriously though, it is just odd... but who knows, they're ants... they don't have to make sense.

It's the ammonia in the windex that kills them and their path. It works. Ants can be a problem here. Windex stops it.

PETA requires that you trap them and release them in someone else's jeep.

Hehe good deal, I will actually do that. I like the smell of Windex anyway, and maybe some will overspray onto the windows

Soapy water in a spray bottle will kill them too. Just a few drops of dish soap, and boom, they die. They are looking for shelter this time of year, and well, face it, most Jeeps aren't water/air tight, so they get in to get out of the cold and wet.

No Joke, my Jeep has ants too. I see one or two a month, usually while i'm driving on the freeway. They are just casually walking around my dash. I sprinkled some ant block/killer in the foot well. Seriously though, what in the jeep can they be surviving on? Hopefully winter kills them.

Bengal: Bengal Roach Spray

they also have one for ants, but just in case a roach finds it's way in there you will be covered for them also.

Oh, there has been roach spray in the Jeep before...
Seriously though, if I see an f'ing roach in the Jeep, I am going to lay down a layer of chemicals that would make Love Canal look like it was a minor spill

Put a little outdoor Terro Ant Killer near where you park. If there are ants around, the will all run to that thing,bring it back to their queen and all be dead within 2 days.

Here in the desert we have ant problems in the house almost every summer. The Terro stuff has been the most effective stuff I've ever used.

I think I am going to combine all of the suggestions and have Dr. Mephisto create me a Bengal tiger that sweats Windex, breathes fire, salivates Terro, and has an Anteater for a pet. Now THAT would be the ultimate ant killing machine!

Seriously though.I would think you need to find where they are living.There must be somewhere that they are all coming from.
