There's a bug living inside my monitor

Its been a week and a half now & whatever kind of bug this is in my monitor is still alive & kicking. Was hoping it would have either left or died by now but no.

I've tried leaving the monitor off & cranking the AC down so its so cold in the room it would want to leave, but that didn't work. I tried pressing the screen where it was walking around to try to squish it but that didn't work either.

I've sprayed the room with ant killing insecticide & the smell was so bad for so long I hoped it would scare it off but no. I dare not spray the monitor.

Its a 33" LED in case that's relevant. Not sure what else to try.

Just open up the monitor yourself or take it to an electronics store. Insects are pretty stupid in that they would find the way in but are unable to get out on their own!

So... the historical computer bugs are taking their definition back.
