    Ant are generally looking for not only food but water. Double check to make sure the inside of your, including the trunk is clean and dry. If the A/C drain is plugged there could be water accumulating in the heater box. You can check the A/C drain by running the A/C for a while and look for clear water draining near the firewall on the passenger side. Just to be sure the heater box is dry run the heater with the A/C off for a while to dry things out. It looks as though the ants my be nesting somewhere in your car because parking in a different location did not help. The "bomb" might not be a bad idea. I cannot not say for sure the bomb will not affect the leather interior of your TL but people do not normally move their furniture out if they bomb their house. I hope this helps.
