cockroaches... sigh

my beloved car has had a few problems with this particular species. I sprayed the whole car and left it for a few days and it seemed to work. no more tiny cockroaches. that was a few months ago.

Today i went to the back seat to grab something and i saw a big cockroach dead on the floor. i nearly cried (i am a man and i hate cockroaches) what should i do guys;

A: Set fire and burn the car to the ground (most reasonable answer)

B: Sell the car and buy a new one (not possible)

C: Make friends with the cockroaches (no freaking way)

D: Get pandan leaves.

Find the source of the problem. Food in the car? Eat in the car? Lots of paper products in the car?

Burning the car in a fiery accident (rock on accelerator pedal) into a tree would be the best solution.

Failing that I suggest pandan leaves and ridsect cockroach trap.

I never allow people to eat in my car, even my gf. she gets angry but i dont care. im a lovable bf.

Wah cannot have paper ke? is that a source as well? i will throw out every single paper in my car. Or maybe the papers can be used to flame the fire to burn the car. hmm. The rock on the pedal might be a good idea too but im afraid the cockroaches would take the car for a spin around gohtong. susah nanti.


pandan leaves and cockroach trap it is then.

Yeah. Get those sticky traps, it will work. But don't expect it to be long term though.
Mine is different, I have a few spiders. Webs here and there :bawling:
Why wouldnt it be long term :bawling: i want to get rid of it forever. I'll leave pandan leaves in my car for as long as i own it. I'll put pandan leaves in the aircond vents, under the seats, in the spare tyre compartment, in the exhaust (ok maybe not)

Whoa. I dont know which one is worse; cockroaches or spiders. We should have a competition between them.

Kill the source. You likely have a nest in the car. Find some time, some brave friends and strip the car interior bare and find where the nest is, get rid of it and you're done.

spray half a can of aerosol into your cabin & boot, leave it overnight, next day send for car wash & vacuuming,
then place a handful of pandan leaves under your seat.

Forget those environment friendly pandan leaf or those lemon grass. Roaches are damn hardy (can tolerate heat, drought, and can tahan long starvation). They didnt survived millions of years for no reason....


I think those suggested leafy green are too mild to control the roaches.
Instead, use mothballs, or Ridsect....eventhough the smell is almost intolerable at times

Sorry to say, if you have babies roaches in the car, this is an indication your car has becoming a habitat already.

BTW, where is your normally park your car?

U might want to seal the outside air vent flap shut.
Thats the best option as nothing can get into the cabin.

when parking at home or anywhere,do not wind down your window.
Like bro danz said,half a can of aerosol and leave it overnight.

If u have the time,strip the interior except the dash as u dont want a headache in the future when u cant assemble it back or it rattle.spray half a can of ridsect and leave it overnight.

i would:
-seal the vent
-strip the interior
-spray aerosol which does not smell like it can kill u
-leave overnight
-vacuum the fallout
-vacuum the seat outside the car
-reinstall the interior

u get a car free from roach and a cleaned interior in one go.

I disagree. Pandan leaves is effective to prevent cockroaches, not to kill them. I've been using pandan leaves in my house for years. Rooms, kitchen, toilets..

To TS, if you can get free pandan leaves, give it a try. Put them into the cabin and boot, and expose the car under bright sun light. The heat will cook the leaves to release a chemical that cockroaches hate. The problem is after that your car will smell like pandan leaves.

Or send to those fogging services lor

Use the Ridsect Roach traps, but if you want to use spray, use Baygon cockroach control. This spray is effective. My warehouse with movement sensor always get triggered by flying cockroaches. So every evening my personnel will spray the area where the sensor is before locking up, and no more false alarm.....hhahahhahha:biggrin:

I'll follow what you say but what is an outside air vent flap?

I had a dead rat in my mom's corolla way back then. That was really bad smelling. And the problem for me with fogging the car like that is I have kids. Don't think I'd be interested in making everything inside the car toxic!

Come come I dismantle for you. Start with the seats. I'll leave your dash board alone, but once everything else is out it's easy to look under the dash. Very very easy je.

Spraying in air con vent, actually scare the chemical stays in the vent and is not good when using the air con. Scare also the chemical mix with the wet damp internal then turn bad smell also...:banghead:

cockroaches walk on the earth long before homo sapiens are born, they are omnipotent. I my opinion, if you want to get rid of any trace of that ugly little bugs in your car, strip clean your car completely, and keep it as clean as you possibly can from any traces of food. But I doubt you can hold them back for long as they walk in the deepest and darkest valley of your car's chassis and will find a way into your cabin somehow. Buying a new car? heck, almost every car has it. The only way is to make peace with them.

Fogging the car with insecticide spray cans works (for weeks / months).
- spray into air con vents
- under seats, hidden areas etc
- close doors overnight
- live with insecticide smell for a few days

I'm not sure if they are affected by heat, perhaps a visit to the paint shop leaving the car in the oven booth overnight could drive them away

Bro swift,
The vent is the one that control aor circulation.
Either internal circulation or allowing outside air in.
The knob or switch is the one labelled with an arrow getting into the car or u shape arrow.
most of the time cable operated vent have this problem.if u used it frequently,it wont shut properly.i diy shut on my blm and my sis kenari.
Most of the time the air intake is located under the plastic trim under the windscreen wiper.
If u want outside air after shutting the vent,just wind down the window then.I will diy for my wife viva soon and if i dont forget i will post step in this forum.

mothballs. drives out even spiders, ants, any bugs out of the car. but only can be applied by leaving your car under the sun at least half a day, and requires you to take them out from the car and air-out the car remove the toxic vapor out from the car.

mothballs melt under heat and will stain wherever you put it. Don't leave it on the carpet or whatever, put it in a plastic container or something and let it melt in the container.

Bro swift,
The vent is the one that control aor circulation.
Either internal circulation or allowing outside air in.
The knob or switch is the one labelled with an arrow getting into the car or u shape arrow.
most of the time cable operated vent have this problem.if u used it frequently,it wont shut properly.i diy shut on my blm and my sis kenari.
Most of the time the air intake is located under the plastic trim under the windscreen wiper.
If u want outside air after shutting the vent,just wind down the window then.I will diy for my wife viva soon and if i dont forget i will post step in this forum.
ahhh that thing. i always have it on to internal circulation. does that make the vent open or closed? closed, right?

That makesnthe flap closed.try not to use it frequently as the cable or mechanism can get some freeplay and will cause the flap not closing properly.one sign the flap is not closed priperly is u got outsode air smell getting inside the cabin despite using aircon and all 4 windows up
