#540311 - 30th Jun 2011 9:13am Ants all over the car....?

Over the past few weeks Ive noticed a lot of ants on the exterior of the beemer.

They dont appear to be inside the car, but they are crawling all over the outside. You can see them gathering round the drain holes at the bottom of the screen, and you see them coming and going in and out of the side skirts on the sills.

I keep the car clean and washed, and Im sure there is no sticky sugar delights anywhere.

Any suggestions on how to get rid of the little blighters. I think it will need something external on the car, as I dont think something inside will do anything as they dont appear to be able to get beyond the door seals.... think

Carnauba car wax is organic, maybe they can 'smell' the organicness in the wax residue and foolishly retrieve it?
Or just make sure you wipe the jizz off after you're done.

Well, I got some Nippon gel and put a few dots of it here and there on the car, and the ants are loving it!!!

Lets hope they take it back to where ever they have come from, and it kills all the little blighters!
