Bed Bugs In Car

I live in a complex, where I had heard that a neighbor had bed bugs. I didn’t think anything of it. Well, I kept getting bites, I live in the south in Florida. I have had a run in with these little guys once before, I stayed at a motel about 10 years ago. Never did I think I would be victim. My Neighbor did not Take care of the problem, I discovered that in October of 2015 he had his entire apartment exterminated for bed bugs. In October I started seeing a few clear bugs late at night, I did not realize it was bed bugs!!! So, I called my landlord and told him of the issue. He stated it was in my contract that I was to exterminate! I told him that I was told a neighbor had these bed bugs, and that I was unable to afford to exterminate. After all, they spray for cockroaches on the regular, why not bed bugs? I purchased a brand new sofa and bed right before this, and the total was in the couple of thousand dollars. All of my pillows and down comforters, trashed, thrown into the city dump! Now I have been sleeping on army cots for about three months. My husband and I washed and bagged every single house hold item and took all the necessary precautions. Vacuumed and diatomaceous earthed everything, put bed bug covers on all the beds, treated the cots we are sleeping on, keeping blankets and new pillows from hitting the floor. We removed everything, that was a possible threat, Had a Exterminator come out, he sprayed for a whopping 800 dollars, twice! we purchased our own do it your self, Chemicals to try and keep an eye out for any stragglers. And not to mention hundreds of dollars spent out of pocket. We spray crevices with alcohol, The animals have been flee treated and so forth. Two months later we are seeing babies again! Really, it is a daily battle. The bug exterminators did not find any of these bugs while they were checking in my apartment. They stated that the Apartment below me was treated in October and it was one of the worst infestations they had ever seen. I am going mad! The bugs came from down stairs! Since the extermination, I still live out of bags, I sleep on a cot, I am at my wits ends!!! These critters are back! They are still here, I am tired, exhausted and have not had a good nights rest in so long, I think I am going cray, cray!

Although I don’t have a car, I’ll try to remember all your tips and apply them once I get the car! 😀 ana 2 years ago i would not want my car infested with bed bugs tim 2 years ago What about putting dry ice in your car to rid it of bedbugs anony 2 years ago most climates will kill bed bugs if parked outside, extreme heat and cold malik 12 months ago If i use spray in my car to get rid of bedbugs. Is good are not anonymouse 8 months ago Don’t use any sprays, pesticides, bug bombs in your car, they can persist and hurt your health in the long run. I haven’t read of any 100% effective do it yourself remedies because these critters can hide real deep.Heat and cold are also not effective according to many – even in hot weather, parts of the car don’t get hot enough and bugs will go there, and for this reason heat may cause bugs to hide even deeper. Same with cold – takes a long time and bugs will find some insulated areas that won’t get cold enough.I’m going to get my car fumigated probably by a termite control company – professional sealed/tented Vikane fumigation seems to be the only, or most, reliable method.

Bed bugs love clutter, as it gives them the ability to go undetected. By cleaning your car regularly, you will be able to detect these sneaky pests and prevent an infestation from occurring. Aside from removing trash that builds up, avoid storing your clothes in your car for a twofold aim: to prevent bed bugs from attaching themselves to these items and to stop them from hitching a free ride into your home. While cleaning, be sure to thoroughly vacuum every crack and crevice in your car to help remove any lingering bed bugs that remain. One bed bug can lay from 200 to 250 eggs in her lifetime. They prefer to lay their eggs in protected cracks and crevices and those eggs will hatch in about 6 to 10 days. If left unchecked, under normal circumstances, bed bugs will live for about 10 to 11 months. There may be three or more generations of bed bugs born each year. Because bed bugs of all ages may be found in an infestation, you must keep cleaning your car regularly to inhibit their reproduction.

If your home or office is infested and you often travel by car, these pests may find their way in your vehicle and quickly breed an infestation. The good news is there are a number of safe and effective treatments to get bed bugs out of your car.

Dealing with bed bugs is frustrating and can be costly. Avoid the hassle by reducing the risks of any other infestations. Keep your car cleaned and vacuum it on a regular basis. Remove trash from your car. Make sure you don’t have any bed bugs in your home, which you could transport to your car, and don’t let anyone ride in your car that has bed bugs in their home or you suspect could be carrying bed bugs.

Take Your Car to a FumigatorFumigation has long been an effective treatment for pests in homes, but did you know it can also be performed on cars with bed bug infestations? Much like a home, vehicles are sealed and covered with a tarp for the fumigation treatment, and it usually only takes one treatment to effectively remove all pests from your car. Better yet, you can place infested belongings such as clothes or bedding in the car to be treated, as well. Although each of these methods is effective in itself at treating and preventing bed bugs, the highest rate of success will be achieved by combining two or more methods. If bed bugs continue to be a problem in your car after the aforementioned remedies have been performed, contacting a pest control professional could be the solution you need. Professionals will be able to safely apply heat or chemical treatments without placing you, your family, or your car in danger. Remember that bed bugs are resilient, and keeping a pest-free car takes more than one single treatment, so continued preventive measures must be taken to get rid of them once and for all.
