  • I think cleaning it out really good should work.....or Put the microwave in the deep freezer, if you have room. The cold will kill the bugs.

  • Steaming them out might work, too. I remember a couple years ago, there were tiny ants that found their way into the frame of the microwave. A trail of them would come out the seam when I made pasta.
