    How to get rid of roaches in car?

    Some how I think my car is infested with roaches. Saw two tiny ones scurrying about. managed to kill them....
    Anyone have any idea how to get rid of these buggers and prevent them from coming back?
    I dont think spraying Shelltox will help. It'll poison the human occupants in the car too.
    Heard some of my friends say put pandan leaves in car... (I'm stumped as to how this will rd the car of roaches)... but it'll also make the car smelll like a taxi...
    Any solutions anyone?

    here's a crazy idea - how about fogging? after that leave all the doors open for a while to rid the fog and smell and put a car deodorant make the car smell nice again.
    You know we're sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?

    buy pest control food and place inside ur car.

    these little box control poison which smell beri nice but r poor in digestion, eventually, the roaches dies fr overfeeding.

    Sounds like a good idea. will try this... hopefully it does not poison the humans in the car (namely me & passengers)

    Fogging may leave residule poison everywhere.... everytime using the car will be like slowly killing yourself...

    nope, its exactly like the other poster said, but if u hv doubt, u can get it done by Simoniz Car Care Center, they do this sorta pest control as well as "car care"

    each tab cost abt $10+ fr pest control firms i think. or u can get those fr supermarket too.

    guys!

    there's this roach house! think you can find it in japanese supermarket. bascially it's a cardboard tat u fold into a house, then a package of some 'food' to be placed in the centre of the house, industrial strength strong adhesive surrounding the 'food', and u R suppose to place it in the car for days. After which u will trapped lotsa roaches in the house.

    IMHO, u don get dead roaches everywhere in the car if poison is used, just dump this box away with all the caught roaches!

    It's very innovative effective product by japanese i think.
