    Use baits... you can find a variety of granular or gel baits at hardware stores or supermarkets. Keeps the population down quite well. They'll appear even more at first, and will feast on it at night when you're not around and the car is parked. After a few days the population will plummet. Once the population is down, put some of those traps (the type with the glue boards) in hidden locations so in event of new infestation they will be caught early.

    the wife almost freaked out when she saw one crawling across the dashboard. good thing i warned her to look out for one in the end, she managed to squash it dead... hope that's the last of 'em

    tell me about it..... i do pick up passengers who will immediately freak out or scream when they see pests


    that will lead to dangerous driving .... Anw, I ve found roaches at the back seats .... have not gone to the front yet.....hopefully


    ok...so what I ve gathered from some of you..PANDAN leaves only prevent...they do not eliminate or 'destroy' them ....


    hmm....so roach traps or poison is the way to go ? there are no other 'family handed down' pest control methods ?

    park ur car under the hot sun. the rain recently encourages them to hide in cars with damp interiors.

    pandan leaves work for me though need to renew twice per month. Put one in boot and one under seats.

    I also once a while put some posion in the boot area and try not to leave food smell in the car.
