I also managed to provide housing for a thriving colony of red ants. I’ve had ants in my cams before, but it’s been awhile, mainly because I always use the old trick of sticking a fabric softener sheet into the cam housing before sealing it up. I’d done that very thing with this camera, in fact. So I don’t know if ants—normally repulsed by the smell of dryer sheets—have developed a sudden immunity, or if I used the wrong brand, or what…. But when I returned to pull the card a week later, ants swarmed from the camera like a hive of flightless bees.
