Rofl.

 

You may need to take it apart, sounds like theyre building a nest in there.

 

If you want to kill them, best way would be to fumigate the little pricks, put the ipod in a box and spray some flyspray in there, then seal it. Leave it overnight or something and then open it up to clean it out.

 

Thats all I can think of.

Indeed, even if you fumigate them, this is likely to leave heaps of the dead insects inside the device, so you'll want to open it up anyway to clean out the dead corpses... otherwise more will come crawling in.

 

And next time don't put such sugary music on your iPod. :-)

The only thing I can think of is that you poured coke over it or fruit juice over it or something.

 

I say take it to Apple to get it serviced or whatever. Im sure they will get a laugh out of it as well.

I do hope you cleaned them out first. Mashed up insects in a headphone socket are no fun. Then they really start to up the anti...

Its the only possible reason I can think of but then Im no entmologist (spelling?) Its probably cause I've got a mate who had an ants nest under the back set of his station wagon and I know for a fact that it was due to spilt beer and various other foodstuffs being left in the car...

 

Good luck fixing your problem, though I feel I've threadshat enough so I'll try to stop

cheap hotglue and citcuit sealing spray is sweet to the taste. Ants love it.

They'll also try to steal your cover disks off delivered magazines to get at the glue-rubber they use to hold the disk on.

 

Also, fumigating is never a good idea, ants communicate too well, as long as one lives, the others will hide out.

 

ant liquid, available in a dripper bottle from... anywhere.... will work. they'll carry it back to he base even. Its slow working, but it works 100% if ants come into contact.

That, and apparently electric fields sometimes attract them. There have been documented cases of ants nesting inside traffic signals, causing various kinds of mayhem.

Incidentally... just because you eradicated ants from your iPod... doesn't mean you have the right to send them marching to our multi-function printer...

As you can see we've cleaned it up a bit so the scanner is usable. Otherwise... this is what its scans looked like:

Haha, gold.

 

Checked your ear holes for an ant infestation? Considering they were there when you plugged your headphones in. Could be dangerous o.O
