On the contrary John. Get a sheet of paper, make a nearly closed goo ring with bait in the middle of the ring. Let the ants find it. Wait until there are plenty of them, then close the goo ring with a number of them inside. Put the whole thing in the microwave and let em have it. They do move away from the hotspots.
Now if you put them inside a plastic or glass container and set the container on the perimeter of a turntable, they then move in and out of the hotspots, which I already knew about. In that case, they perish.
I was eleven years old when microwave ovens first came along, and oh what a toy that was. Such a wonderful physic lab is a microwave oven. We take them for granted now, but not so much in 1972.
