Help! I got ants in my DSLR camera - How to get rid of the ants?

My camera and I recovered from a great disaster few weeks ago. Hundreds of ants entered in my DSLR Nikon D90. At first I had no idea of what to do. Everyone gave different advice. I tried almost everything. I will share them and let's see what worked best. I am also sharing some tips which can help keep your  baby safe ;)

1. I picked the ants from hand and blew them away. This may take hours of effort but all lucky ants remaining inside wont go.

2. I put my camera in sun. The ants couldn't bear the heat inside, and started to come out. But the heat outside was much more than the inside, so ants preferred to stay inside. PS- make sure you don't heat the camera in sun more than the suggested operating temperature mentioned in the manual.
