About roaches

Roaches are one of the most unpleasant sites in this world; they are mostly brown in color and have a dark parallel line on their backs.  Every roach species is unique in its own perspective but all of them have the same characteristic patterns. These roaches also have wings but rest assured they cannot fly but can glide, we know that is not very comforting but at least they can’t fly.  Roaches are nocturnal so all of their activities take place at night and these omnivore scavengers are attracted to sugar, meat, and fatty foods. Although roaches are not dangerous, they do have the tendency of spreading diseases. Apparently, roaches can even survive a nuclear bomb! However, we are sure they cannot survive the following tips.  

Different methods to kill roaches for your car for good

Given below are different methods designed to get rid of roaches from your cars.  However, these methods will only be effective if your car’s hygiene is on point. This means you should consider cleaning your car mats, trunk and clear the seats of any debris. If possible get a hold of a vacuum and clean the car to make sure that there is nothing that can attract the roaches in your car. While cleaning your car please mentally prepare yourself on finding roaches, rest assured the methods mentioned below will kill all of the roaches in your car.

  1. Consider investing in roach bait

The very first method involves investing in roach bait, you can easily find roach bait at your local pesticide store. These baits are offered at different prices so you can easily find one that encompasses your respective budget. Apex Roach bait is designed to lure all of the roaches in the area and the moment they nibble on the bait they start dying within a matter of minutes. However, this bait will only be effective if you place the bait at different locations in your car.

We would recommend invest in at least three roach baits and use them intermittently at different locations. Once you are equipped with the bait simply place the bait in the trunk, on the dashboard, next to the floor mats, on the seats and under the steering console. Roaches can travel very fast and their size allows them to maneuver into small openings. This is exactly why you have to place the bait at different locations in order to kill all of the roaches in your car.   

  1. Consider investing in roach repellent

Another effective way to kill all of the roaches present in your car is investing in roach repellents. These repellants are also readily available at your local pesticide store. We would recommend investing in roach repellents, especially if your car is heavily infested with roaches.  Once you have equipped yourself with the repellants, roll up all of your car’s windows and spray the inside of the vehicle generously. Novacide aerosol is the perfect product for the job.  Once you are done with the interior of your car the next step is to spray the trunk generously as well.
