Bats in the belfry...or rather, Ants in the A/C
Still kinda new to camping in general (2nd season), so I don't know how common this is and I would love some feedback, solutions, etc. I'm on my second trip of this season, turned on the AC 2 nights ago and 2 live ants (big'ns, carpenter?) came shooting out of the vent - I actually thought it was kinda funny at the time, because it scared the living daylights outta me... but temps reached mid-90's yesterday while I was at work and when I returned to the CG, I found ants swarming/covering the interior AC vent cover, presumably escaping the heat outside. When I started killing their brethren, the survivors/escapees quickly retreated back into the AC shroud, so I'm assuming there's some sort of a nest up there.
I don't want to remove the interior cover and be showered with live ants, but I don't really want to spray chemicals up into my AC either, so I've decided to wait until I get home and take off the exterior cover to find and fix the problem.
Has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas what I can expect to find when I get up there (Are these ants gonna be living off the carcass of some recently deceased critter?)? Any solutions and/or methods to prevent this from happening again (I don't THINK I dropped any crumbs inside the AC)?
