Ants in my laptop

Hi, Recently I got small red ants inside my laptop :smileysad: . I heard they can destroy the inside of my laptop by chewing on rubber and all. Is there any solution to the problem ? How can i get rid of the ants ?

 

Thanks and Regards

Re: Ants in my laptop

The only way I can think of is a complete teardown. Even trying to spray or fumigate it is going to cause problems.

Put the notebook in the freezer for one week.

Re: Ants in my laptop

I was too late I guess :smileysad: . Went home only to find an error "Operating System Not Found". 100s of ants were crawling inside.

Thanks for the suggestions.. (Freezer... for 1 week...? Really? :smileytongue:)
