Vehicle Pests

You might think since your car is high off the ground it could never possibly get pests. I had a friend once buy an abandoned car and keep it in his garage. One weekend when he went to work on it, he noticed spider webs as soon as he opened the door. He ended up having an infestation of black widow spiders in his car. All from one little spider crawling in when you don’t expect it. Often times when you car is left sitting in one place for too long you can see an infestation of ants as well. And, if like me who sometimes tends to eat in their car and not always throw the trash away, you could end up with a cockroach infestation that takes over all the cracks and crevasses in your car.

How to stop them

If your first thought is to go to your local Walmart and buy some foggers and set off 2 or 3, stop. That is completely way too much, and more is not always better. Firstly, this will only kill some of the bugs on contact. Secondly, this will cause the bugs to run and that can cause the infestation to actually grow more. Thirdly, if they survive the fogger it will actually allow the bugs to breed offspring that are immune to that product. Lastly, more often than not you will not want to do this alone. Hiring a professional at R H Miller will help give you some relief knowing it will get taken care of which is always better than the headache of doing it by yourself.
