turn the 360 off, ants are attracted to electricity.

WTF? You'd think that'd be a really unappealing environment. I don't know what to tell you, man. Most thorough thing would probably be to open it up, get one of those little electronics vacuums and clean it out by hand. That's risky, though, because those vacuums can build up a static charge in your Xbox that can damage it.

I happen to have a surplus of tame ant-eaters I need to unload.

If you're not in the mood for some new pets, Some hairspray and a lighter will make a great MacGuyver flamethrower. From experience I know that ants aren't fire-proof.

From what I understand pouring gasoline into the ant colony then lighting it works very well.

Ants aren't attracted to electricity, they're attracted to components electronics are made of. Turning off the electricity won't do anything.

Open her up and use spray air to clean them out.

I've heard ants are hard to get rid of. Ants inside of a 360......hmm.

+1 for cold climates.

No ****ing ants in the middle of January.
