I little black ant just crawled across the hinge between the keyboard and screen on my PB. So I tried to blow him off and he crawled in one of the little rectangular holes in that gap! How do I get the little buggar out of there?!? Maybe I have squashed him typing this message - serves him right!

he probably won't last long in there as it is, pb's get pretty hot, but getting him out is the issus, someone else had a similar problem, search through the forums to see if you can find it.

--also try doing something processor intensive (watch DVD or edit video, ect..) and see if you can get all your fans running, maybe he'll blow out of there.

Or... you could just put a little blob of honey or jam near the computer - he'll go for it and will be out of there.

Great idea! Maybe this will tempt his sweet tooth...
umm, it would probably be better a little farther from the computer.
