It is very important to vacuum your car on a regular basis to prevent the infestation of bed bugs. If the infestation is already present, you may need to call an exterminator to remove them from your car. However, the chemicals used by the exterminator are extremely dangerous and you should avoid driving while they are active. You should also clean any fabric items in your car thoroughly.
The temperature of a car can also be an excellent place for bed bugs to breed. Bed bugs will survive in temperatures of as high as 117degF (47degC)! Nevertheless, these insects do not regularly feed on humans. If you are worried that your car is infested with bed bugs, don’t let anyone ride in it. Bedbugs are very clever at hiding and can easily infest a car.
While bedbugs are most common in hotels and houses, they can also be found in cars. Bed bugs prefer to hide in crevices so you should look out for them. Using a flashlight can help you detect them. You can also remove any items in your car that may contain bedbugs to make cleaning easier.
If you suspect that your car has bed bugs, you should inspect all the areas in the car where you sleep and park your vehicle. Check the seat areas, the console, and the ceiling panel above your seat. You should also check the car mats and rugs.
