Ants over my Macbook Pro

Hi,

I just left an eatable by mistake near my mac laptop. When I came back home, my parents told me that my macbook was full of ants.. My brother seem to have cleaned it. But I still could see some ants when I use my mac. These ants come out of the keyboard... from bottom of display..

The performance is unchanged. But I'm afraid whether there could be any performance issues with my macbook in case some ants stay inside my laptop :( Any idea what might happen??

I wouldn't think so. If they get in the components, they'll probably just burned. The only downside is that this may be a problem if you don't like ants crawling up your arm without you knowing.

An insignificant fly broke the power supply of my PC. (there was even an explosion and smoke)
My advice, seriously: Turn off your laptop and disconnect it from the mains until all the ants are gone.

Meanwhile, you can play this game on your mobile phone:

This is crazy, but the crazy part to me is that your brother would clean your computer for you, or do something nice. O.o Mine would never do such a thing.

That's not going to played near outdoors, right(Hint: Frogs everywhere, rejoice!)?

It could be worse, but that's my opinion. My bros spill soda on their older laptops by accident and almost got fried. I even saw a computer explode by it's audio port, back in the days!

My laptop wasn't connected to any power supply and my brother already cleaned the laptop before I came home. But still, I could see some ants coming out here and there. Hope that doesn't cause any harm :(

Definitely, I'll report this bug.. But, why report a Macbook bug to Microsoft? :D

He also uses my macbook when he's at home. That's why :D

I hope ants can't do that as they are so small.

Actually they can cause a short circuit:

And its pretty common. I used to change 3-4 wireless keyboards in a year back when I was still actively freelancing.
When a lot of jobs coming  in, I usually just eat at my work table.

You might want to open and clean it up.

OMG! That's frightening. Unfortunately I don't know to open my laptop. Also, I don't want to get into trouble opening it.

It's been more than 30 hours and I can no longer see any ants in my laptop. Also, my laptop was put in charge and I could even feel the heat of my laptop. Normally how it gets hot when charged. Nothing different. So I hope there will no longer be any problem?

Ants don't like to waste time. If they don't find food inside your laptop, they will leave soon.
