I've been having an ant problem at my house for a couple of weeks. Got rid of them really fast with AMDRO ant bait. Kills off the entire colony in a couple of hours. You can get it at home depot. Just wet it a little to activate it and it turns into a thick syrup and place it on top of newspaper or something. It works great. http://www.amazon.com/Amdro-4-Pack-K...amdro+ant+bait

^^The problem is, if the colony isn't in the car itself which it most likely isn't, it has something to do with the chemicals in the carpets or something which draws the ants in, you most likely won't kill the colony, I'm dead serious about the cinnamon...

It can be messy, but fine if you're careful: http://www.ehow.com/how_2310653_get-...-cinnamon.html

I am having a ton of ants in my trunk they seem to be going up in under my window and under the tail light. It is driving me bonkers i go to school and open the trunk to get my books out and there are hundreds of ants. Then I go home and i find maybe 10 tops. What gives? I even sprayed in these areas today to see if I could stir up some but only seen the initial 10.

Well, I have a completely different issue. I have a two car garage, but I can't use it because I have a black widow infestation. I have murdered over 50 of them in the last month, and I find other spiders they've been gnawing on! Nothing kills them unless you spray them directly and I can't seem to kill them all off. I'd take ants any day! LOL

I've been finding a couple dozen ants on the outside of my car, mostly on the car cover. I will have to try the cinnamon. I think they are dropping down from a nearby tree.

I had ants get in my house this summer get behind the base boards. I just sucked them up with 5 hp shop vac for 2 days straight. It made quick work of them.

I parked under a tree once, and when I drove away ants started crawling out of the air vents!!!

If you have a shop vacuum then I would vacuum them up if you can and then spray Lysol in the trunk to kill any stray's (I have found that it will kill them.) and then vaccum again. After that you may want to put one of those Decon ant traps in your trunk to help catch any that survive the vacuuming and Lysol and or those new ones that find their way into the trunk.

Good Luck.

P.S. I hope you survive the APOCALYPSE!

no spiders but I have gnats and flies that just hang out on the surface of the paint, guessing they dig the carnuba in the wax or something like that
