Are these Fire Ants and do you park your car outside (not garaged)?

No, not fire ants.... thank god. At home it is in a garage free of any ants. At work, where there are a lot of ants, I park it outside.. but I make sure to spray around to keep them out of the car.. but that just made me realize some may jump on board when it rains... damn florida weather..

When I had my firebird in Florida the same thing happened. Do not bug bomb or use raid, it wreaks havoc on your plastics. What actually solved it for me was cinnamon, I basically made a perimeter in the door sills, trunk, and even hood area. It messes with the ant's way of navigating, its like removing all of the signs from a hiking trail and they will stop coming back.

When I had this problem, there was no food in the car and it was detailed bi-weekly, I tried all of the raid and ant killing stuff but in the end the cinnamon solved my issue. Best of luck.

I had that problem last year, I bought these no pest strips, cut top out of package (so that strip is exposed, but won't touch carpet) and slide under drivers seat. That handles inside problems, for outside, cinnamon works about as well as sevin dust without chemicals. Just sprinkle on your driveway.

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.
