some say that it helps to park under blazing hot sun. either cooks everything inside or makes it unbearably hot such that insects inside are forced to escape.

Use mothballs. But you have to leave the door open to let them escape.

Look for Antimos at supermarkets and place them in the car. They're very good cockroach deterrents.

oh there is a roach version?
I know they are for mosquitos

Use mothballs. But you have to leave the door open to let them escape.
Do u tink its better suffocate them inside with the mothballs inside and doors closed, then 1day later open the door to let them evacuate?
Or have the mothballs there while the door is opened? leaving the doors opening is abit tricky unless i can sit there like 1-2hrs but only on non working day wkends...

some say that it helps to park under blazing hot sun. either cooks everything inside or makes it unbearably hot such that insects inside are forced to escape.
this few days is raining like nobody biz lor




Maybe this sounds a little crazy.
Do u think its any gd if i have everything in the car? pandan leaves, mothballs, antimos all in the car at the same time?
I just want something to work, not really screw the driver and passengers...


Anyway, i found the culprit le. Coz this is a family car, so my sis and bro in law do drive occassionally. My bro in law has bad habit to eat and drive...

never eat but never clean up also cause problems......sometimes if u tabao food home in ur car some stuff may drop around as well.

and ur car mat should clean regularly because u dont know what u pick up from outside. moist and dirt also breed insects.

Buy pandan leaf and put in car. Somehow cockroaches hate the smell. So even if there are any, they won't come out to parade in front of you

Use those roach baits loh, best liao. Eat and die, adult, teens, baby roaches all gone. And stop the eating in the car habit at the same time.

Leave car under sun no use at all. Last time my car also got roaches, car park in open air carpark under hot sun everyday cos opc and only use on weekends. Roaches still alive and kicking. Until i use the roach baits and stopped eating in car, few weeks later many dead roaches when doing vacuum.
