Introduction

Drawn by the heat inside the computer, several small animals may simply decide to live inside your PC. Out of the blue, ants, cockroaches and even mice may use your computer as their five-star hotel. What happened to the computer of our reader Rodrigo Viera Santos was really amazing: hornets made a hive inside his computer. He even took a picture of it and sent us.

After we published this tutorial, two other readers sent us some amazing pictures. In Figure 3, you can see ants living inside a video monitor base and on the other pictures, check what happened when a mouse tried to literally enter the internet. As you can see, the mouse set the computer of this guy on fire!
