I think it's called cleaning.

 

Also called Pest Control Services in your area.

Clean out the pc and stop them from getting to it? 

 

Go find the next and put an ass load of poison in it and put those poison canisters nearby that they can carry back to the nest.

Are we talking 10 ants or 100 ants? You should probably clean up your surroundings, obviously there is nothing to eat in your case (at least i hope not!)

I can recommend terro liquid ant bait...just put it where the ants are walking on a piece of foil.

 

But I hope they aren't trying to make an ant hill in your PC case. Enough of them can cause you problems.

You will need the following:

1 x full bottle of Raid/pesticide spray

1 x anti-pest spray

1 x gloves

1 x something to lure the ants out of

 

Step 1: dismantle motherboard & other parts

Step 2: set up something sweet (i.e. honey trail) to lure ants

Step 3: game end ants

Step 4: spray anti-pest spray

If you find more ants or too many pests then just call pest control.

 

Fuck ants.

Delete them. Then empty the recycle bin.

Most ants are actually attracted to electrical equipment.

Just find out where they're entering you're house, DIY the hole, evict any stragglers, and job done.

I would still call pest control services. If you found ants in the processor, that means they could be in the kitchen or bedroom. Be sure to check it out.
