My husband got some free old wood (very old and didn't burn well kinda wood) to take camping. Well he put this wood in the back of my Explorer on a tarp for about a week, and then we went camping and burned it all up and for a couple of weeks now we've been killing big black ants in the car. I'm personally on the verge of having an accident looking for them. I took it to the car wash to vaccum them out with the heavy duty vaccum, and of course seeing only a couple then, (they seem to come out of nowhere when your driving.)I then proceeded to put 2 professional strength ant traps under the seats. I now assume problem solved, Wrong! still see 2or 3 at a time, so I kill them and maybe go into the store then get back into car and see 2 or 3 more. HELP!!! What can I do, is there a nest in my car from the wood? Can I use an ant bomb in my car? Can carpenter ants live in my car? Please HELP.
Thank you very much,
