I cannot believe that my first new thread is about this, but...
I opened our new (three-week-old) microwave to find about 40 ants crawling around in it. There were no ants outside the microwave until I opened the door. I think that the only place that they could be getting in would be through the vent to the outside. As it is new, there isn't any food buildup to be attracting them.
I've sprayed them with glass cleaner, wiped out the microwave with detergent and water on a paper towel, soaked the glass tray in bleach and water and zapped them for a minute (which had no effect on them). This solved the immediate problem, but what can I do now to keep them away? I can't use pesticide in the vent; we cook food in the microwave.
