Has anyone any idea of the best way to get rid of ants from my MINI?
just saw them today, they seem to be behind the mirror glass and around the clock, if I tap on either the ants appear.

How did they get in there???? *runs out to check her MINI over for ants*
Maybe you could get an aardvark to eat them?

Madness. I'm guessing they must have a home under there?

wow, it depends how bad it is....got any pictures of the density of ant infestation in the MINI, so Dr.Klint can run a diagnostics report on how to deal with such cretins. ;)

I've got an Aardvark that refuses to leave the back passenger seat. Anyone any ideas?

Actually, you could put a plate smeared all over with jam nearby, and see what happens. It may entice them away from the car - but watch that the whole ant neighbourhood doesn't think it's a big MINI party. Have done that before when they've crept in under the back door. Just left something more attractive outside..

Is yours male or female?

Well some excellent suggestions..:rolleyes:
Chris; the vacuum cleaner
Redpanda; the Aardvark
Tone; the plate of jam
Shedend; I'm adamant that wouldn't work

Decided on an all out attack incorporating the first three ideas.
Results, well the ants have gone; or hidden in another part of the car.

But:
I had no idea how much headlining would fit into a vacuum cleaner,
maybe should have used low power.
Does anyone know the best way to get Aardvark urine out of the carpet?

Will a wasps nest in the bonnet scoop affect the performance
or will they leave once they have finished the jam?
