    Hi guys, I had my car washed, polished and waxed the other day... Meguires polish with meguires carnauba wax from halfords. From that night onward, everytime i come back to my car, its covered in ants! Now i dont have a permit to park outside in my area and with 4 other cars in my driveway, i cant park it elsewhere either. but that's beside the point anyway. I never had this problem before the polish and wax, and the car's always been parked in the same spot since i bought it. and not to forget, its only my car covered in ants.
    Plus, like today- parked it in sainsburys car park down the road (didnt notice the ants nearby), came back, and saw more ants then ever all over the car. took me 15-20 minutes to get rid of the ones i could spot...i dont wana have to check for ants too, whenever finding a parking space now.lol.

    Im guessing there's something in the wax they like, but wondering if anyone knows somethin about that, or experienced anything similar. im gettin tired of clearing the whole car from ants 3-4 times a day.

    Baz.

    I'd get some little microfibre cloths. You know what hard workers these ants are, imagine the finish afterwards !!

    Seriously, that is well weird.
