How To Get Rid of Creepy Crawlers in Your Vehicle
It’s not often to find a cockroach in your car. Therefore it may come as a surprise to you, but many people have experienced it. Don’t feel like you’re the only one having a crawler among your seats. However, its best to solve the problem as soon as possible. Roach infestations can be creepy and disgusting. No one likes seeing bugs in their car – let alone cockroaches. They are tough to get rid of. Not even bug spray can scare them off. Whatever happens, don’t let them take over your vehicle!
They may seem harmless because it’s usually only one that hangs around, right? WRONG!
It STARTS with one. Roaches crawl into cars to start a home – especially in the colder months. After a while of lingering around the one single roach may find another roach from the outside and produce. After a while, you’ll see eggs nestled behind the carpet where the roaches are claiming their home. You want to avoid this as much as possible. Even though roaches are just roaming about, they can carry and place several different bacteria that can be harmful to your health. Don’t make your go-to commute be a breeding ground to another.
First thing is first, cockroaches are attracted to liquids and foods. Therefore, throw out any chocolate wraps, empty chip bags and water bottles. Then, you would have to vacuum to get rid of any crumbs or leaks that were created due to whatever was in your car. Make sure you get into the areas under your seats. Bugs love small spaces — and most of the time they are most likely settling in those places because they love compact spaces.
Next, set bait. There are different types of bug bait you can set around your car. Identify where you saw these creatures and place these baits close by. You can set them overnight and watch the magic happen.
If you have done these steps and still see them coming, most likely they are lingering around your exterior. Yes, unfortunately, you may not be able to find their main hive. To save you a trip with protective gear under your hood, try going to a car wash. This will clean all areas of your car and may be able to get rid of creatures once and for all.
Once you see the results, take measures into your own hands to prevent it from happening again. Don’t keep food or liquids in your car. Clean your car at least once a month and watch where you park your car. Sometimes, grassy areas lead to bugs taking over the wheel.
