Our local odorous house ants seem to love electronics (and movies too, apparently); we have found them nesting inside a clock radio, phone base, drill charger, and in a lamp. They also surprised us on Valentine's Day when we discovered them nesting in our DVD collection. Luckily, we have found that borax mixed with sugar water (make your own or purchase Terro) can be used to discourage them from taking over. Food grade diatomaceous earth also is effective and safe to use indoors.
