turn the 360 off, ants are attracted to electricity.


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


Crazy Raspberry Ants.

They're a huge problem in southern states because they're attracted to the giant green electrical junction boxes and flood into them in numbers high enough to overload the boxes resulting in power outages.

by turning it off i ment unplug it, most electronics nowdays will vamp electricity whether its on or off but still plugged into the wall. then id wrap it up in a plastic bag and wait till the ants died.

I'm in Oklahoma. My in-laws (who live out in the country) had them eat through the wiring on their well's pump, which caused them to have no water for a few days. Getting rid of the bastards wasn't easy.

Just keep using the 360. I don't think ants will damage it.

In SimAnt, I sent one of my ants to infiltrate their base and kill their Queen. Instant win one of the easiest Sim games I finished!

Don't use a freezer, Get some compressed air, a shop vac, whatever. Take it outside and get them out. They're just ants, dude. Worst case scenario it'll be kind of gross if bugs bother you.

Actually, if it's the kind of ants I think they are, I had my hand swell up like a balloon for several days after getting stung by several of them. It's a nasty sting.
