Truck ants


I've now got six (6) of the Terro pads in the truck. It sat all day yesterday, liquid pesticide was poured onto/around the tires on Tuesday afternoon to prevent them from using those as an escape/entrance route. Late yesterday I looked in to see if I could see any, the Terro looked untouched. There was a column of ants coming from under the console, in the front, on the passenger side, then went up to the dash and into two of the A/C vents. The one's on each side of the radio. They were carrying eggs also. I sprayed killer directly into each of the vents on the dash, and the one on the back of the console in the rear. Shut the doors and called it a day again. This morning there was another column of ants coming from just below the area of the A/C vent on the passenger side down to under the dash, and back out near the floor, and on to the console area. I'm going to pull the whole console now to see if I can get in and I.D. the source of these ants.

Truck ants


As much as I hated to do this, I did it: I mixed up some liquid stuff, put it in a spray bottle and sprayed into all of the A/C vents on the dash, and the one on the back of the console. Darn the smell, I had to get some relief! Let the truck sit for two days. I drove it yesterday afternoon and NO ants, so far. I'm thinking they had somehow gotten into the A/C ductwork and tried to settle down there. Doesn't make sense to me as I have been running the A/C practically all the time and on a low setting for the last three weeks here. Who knows, maybe ants decide they want central heat and cool also.
