Alex Mazza hooked up with game system to a TV that hadn’t been used in a couple of months. The light showed that a colony of ants had set up household inside! What to do? Advice from the reddit thread was all over the map. Leave the TV on. Turn the TV off. Stop eating Doritos while playing video games. Make them a better nest. Get an anteater. Train them to be pixels for your entertainment. Mazza ended up taking the TV apart.
He then used a vacuum cleaner, compressed air, and Windex to clean the ants out. He hasn’t said anything about whether the TV still works, so we assume it is okay.
