    This could be a stupid question, but I have to clarify this. If some small insects (eg: ants . .) goes in to the macbook keyboard, is it cause damage the laptop (I mean damage for circuit) ?

    Yes, they can damage the computer.

    Yes. If you have to, get a sleeve that you can put the Macbook into when you're not using it. I think that would be the best thing to do in your situation. Nothing expensive, just something to keep dirt, debris, and bugs out of the machine.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    The reason you have ants (unless you just left the machine on an anthill) is because they are attracted to the sugar. As in, the sugary drink or crumbs that spilled into the machine (probably the cat's fault, I always blame the cat).

    The sugar will do more damage than the ants, but the bottom line is that machine needs to be thoroughly cleaned out by a trained tech or you are going to have more problems.
