car and bugs

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has had their car valeted with the "fog" which is supposed to kill all bugs etc etc

Thanks

I'm obviously not the only one that's never heard of bug fog, will it also work on bed bugs?

Tend to find the windscreen does a pretty efficient job of that ;)

If it's bugs on the interior upholstery you're asking about, then valeting your car with regular carpet cleaner (the stuff meant for houses with cats / dogs) does a good job.

Someone once valeted my car and used an air conditioning cleaner. It involved placing a canister on the floor of the car, setting the aircon running at full tilt, pressing a button on the canister, and closing the door.

He waited for around ten minutes or so, and opened the car. He told me that the stuff in the canister cleaned the air-conditioning system of bacteria that can produce unpleasant smells. I hadn't noticed any smell before, and there wasn't any afterwards, so I have no idea if the stuff works or not.

I use a sulphur candle in the greenhouse!

Not sure it would be good in a car though, there would probably be lingering fumes in the upholstery.

Kill all the bugs - no way - my spiders would starve!

Nothing worse when you are driving than when a spider decides it wants to swing about on your glasses.

Or swing down from the skip of your hat.

I have a little shadow on my eye which looks like a small fly to me and I am sure those pesky little spiders are after it.

If they were a bit bigger I would send them to their happy hunting ground but as they are usually small out the window they go if I am not driving at the time.

My spiders live outside behind the door mirrors.

I too find most of my spiders take up residence behind the door mirrors.I've tried many times to get them to find somewhere else to live by hosing the mirrors out but within days there's another web built from the door mirror to the window frames.
