Ants in my car! How do I get rid of them w/o spraying?

First, I never eat in the car or leave food in the car. Occassionally pick up fast food but that's about it.<br> <br> I park outside underneath a carport.<br> <br> I'm thinking they're coming in because it's cooler inside than outside. <br> <br> Any suggestions?<br> <br> They can't damage the car right?

I have used Grant's any traps with great success for about..

10 years in my house. They work best when you get them in the path the ants are using. I am not sure how this would work for an auto but there is no mess since they are solid(actually gel) and the ants seem to take the poison back home and not return. Good hunting!

I had an infestation of ants after a carwash and wipe down with a quick wax liquid. I suspect the sweet fragrence attracted them into the engine compartment.
