How to Get Rid of Cockroaches in the Car


The inside of your car is not the typical place to find a cockroach infestation. Regardless, roaches will go wherever there’s a food and water source, including an available source in your car. Having cockroaches in your home is unpleasant, but dealing with them in the close quarters of your car can be unsettling. Natural supplies help rid your car of cockroaches without introducing strong chemicals into the place where you, your family and pets sit as you drive.

The roaches hide well. These bugs hide under the paper trash you have dropped in the car, gum wrappers, coffee cups, and then the bugs hide in your car under the torn floor carpet and between the folds of cloth in your seats of your car.And you are sitting on them when you drive, because the bugs in the car like to hide under the seat covers.These roaches just wait for it to get quiet and then late at night in the dark and the car is parked, the roaches, ants and whatever bugs you have living in your car come out and feast on all that leftover food you dropped and left for them…all because you were lazy. But it is your car and you can be as messy as a teenagers bedroom. So lets talk about how to get rid of the bugs in your car. Vacuum the interior of your car completely. Remove crumbs and food particles from carpeted and upholstered areas, making sure to get down in between seats and underneath them as well. Empty out and vacuum your trunk, too. Fill a spray bottle with vinegar. Spray all interior, hard-surfaced areas inside your car, such as the dashboard, center console and the insides of doors and windows. Vinegar cleans the surfaces of food crumbs, spills and stains.


  • Pick up the trash laying around .
  • Use the vacuum at the local car after the trash is picked up.
  • Buy and put a couple of roach hotels (traps) under the seats.
  • After several days, if you still see the droppings of roaches, fumigate.
  • Buy a bug bomb, turn off all electric in the car, disconnect the battery, and follow the directions.
  • Vacuum up the dead roaches.
  • If you still have them…call a professional pest exterminator.

If all this doesn’t work, sell the car or junk it and you will certainly have discovered how to get rid of the roaches in your car
