    Ok, so yesterday afternoon my neighbor comes by asking for some help. Her cat Mushu had died :rip , and they needed me to help bury him in the yard. ( They are Senior Citizens).No problem, so I grab my shovel and head to the van for my mechanix gloves. I opened the passenger side door and saw acouple ants on the door molding and wasn't concerned, (in Florida sometimes ants get in your car and can't get out, don't ask me how though..)
    I opened the console and grabbed my gloves and was shocked to see them COVERED in ants!!!! FIRE ANTS!!!!!!!:eek:  Now some of you may be going "So what, they're just ants", you have never dealt with these litte f**kers before.
    They bite, sting and generally cause pain, and they don't attack alone. Literally,if you mess with one of them, you mess with all 10,000 of them. They attack in Brigades, Armies, Platoons, Squads...(you get the picture..) kinda like killer bees, but smaller. So now I gotta get these little bastards out of there so I can get to the Post Office and ship some things out..... I hope these ant traps will do the trick.

    Wish me luck, I'm goin in......

    I'm sorry but, the only thing that caught my eye about this post is how awesome the cat name "Mushu" is.

    :lol  But I thought Megatron was obsesed with cloning Dinobot?

    To the OP: Wow, that really, REALLY sucks man. What could have possibly caused fire ants to invade your personal motor vehicle? And if the ant traps fail, call in the experts.

    are fire ants immune to fire?

    If not, kill them with fire.

    Wow, that's a really nasty problem! Boiling water or straight vinegar usually works I hear (plus, you get that nice feeling of painful revenge), but in this case you might want to call an exterminator, see if they can somehow fumigate your entire van.

    I was actually gonna suggest that you "Blow Up The Van" but that might spread the suckers lucky enough to survive the 'splosion and you'd probably get arrested for that.

    You need to enclose yourself completely. Like a plague doctor.

    Then go in with a scalpel and tweezers and kill them one by one.

    And, crucially - ENJOY it. Make sure you take one's head whilst gurgling "Give me your face."

    Duct tape, hose to your exhaust pipe, and let them fall blissfully "asleep" in your car.

    Roll up the windows tight and set off a bug bomb inside. Wait until tomorrow then let it air out.

    I assume fireants are succeptible to the standard variety bug bomb?
