I have ROACHES

My soft top is damaged so I have a safari top with a duster on for now while I save to figure out what to do with the regular top... We have had LOTS of constant rain the past couple of weeks and I just realized I have a roach infestation in my jeep.

I used raid to kill the couple I saw in the back, but since my floor has accumulated quite a bit of water, I just pulled up the carpet to make sure it wasn't rusting or anything and saw MORE roaches.

I bought a trail cover that should hopefully be coming soon, but since it's hurricane season, the rain is going to be nonstop for at least another week. My car is still quite damp behind the front seats, but there isn't much I can do considering I won't have any adequate cover.

Cockroaches are pretty horrifying to me and I am at a complete loss as to what to do. Any ideas? The thought of getting in to my jeep makes me feel almost nauseous.

HELP!

You park in a garage? I would be worried about the house.

Could always wrap the jeep in plastic wrap and set off a bug bomb inside. Remove all the carpet first.

I live in an apartment complex so I park outside. I think I may have to bomb it, I guess. I just hate that I won't have sunshine to work with for like a week!

You could take all the carpet out and see if that works. Do you think they are in the seats?

I'm no insect specialist, but....I'm pretty sure those roaches only stay where there is a food source.

Just pay the price for a professional exterminator.
It cost money, but he will kill them and treat your surrounding area where you park!
