If your car has been invaded by cockroaches, it can be almost impossible to get rid of them just by cleaning the vehicle. Cockroaches can live for long periods without eating, and once they’ve moved, it’s hard to get them to leave.

Park your car in a well-ventilated area. Place a cockroach bomb in your car, preferably in the middle. Place another pump in the trunk. Have the pump in the trunk open first, then the pump inside. Block the car, so no one can get in during this process. Place a large piece of plastic on top of your vehicle so that most of the poison remains in the car. Tape the plastic to the ground or tires.

Let the pump work for the period suggested in the instructions, and two more hours to make sure the cockroaches are dead. Open the car and roll down all the windows. Let air into the car for at least 4 to 5 hours. Vacuum it and clean all surfaces with a disinfectant cleaner. Vacuum seats as well. To remove pump debris, consider renting an upholstery cleaner or bringing the car in for professional cleaning.

Repeat this process every week or two for at least two months to remove all eggs. If you have eliminated the food source, cockroaches will probably find somewhere else to go.
