due to recent exposures of finding hunsman spider behind seatbelt and accidentally grabbing it with my hand and having it try to bite me and putting up with finding dead C**k in my car and having a spider land on my leg while driving at night ive decided to somehow de bug the car but i dont wanna ruin the interior

now ive googled this and no clear answer that didnt ruin the interior was really proposed
now i keep my car clean...really clean ive pulled the interior apart many times and cleaned it(first time was to clean it second time was to try to get em to f**k off third time was to install the amp) i dont eat in my car or anything my best bet is the little C*** like it because its parked near some trees all the time but thats the only shade there is available for my car as the more valuable cars in the family get priority of shade etc

Do you ever park your car with the windows up or down? I'm guessing they have made their way into your car through the air vents and they are breeding next to the heater box. Roaches love warm temps. Spiders I'm guessing would be a windows down thing though but I could be mistaken.

Tried a few roach bombs yet? They don't seem to kill your interior that bad. Just make it smell bad temporarilly.

I had a similar problem with my el 2 years ago. I would find huntsmen on the outside tho. Found one under the bonnet. Dead from the heat, but still all gooey on the inside. Another one was hanging on when I parked the car and chased me till my boot splattered it. I found that when I didn't park under gum trees I wouldn't get them.

I was driving one day and a huntsman came from under the bonnet up the windscreen down the drivers window then up onto the boot, put on quite a show for people following with their cameras

You could remove the seats and door cards before doing anything.. If done properly you won't need to do it again.

Have you tried talking to some pest specialists? Perhaps Flick or someone like that?

I think a bomb out ways the possibility of a damaged car/interior and sore balls.


lol true that
anyone know what bomb will do least damage to the interior ? or just go Mortein ?

well back when i had my EL fairmont and my NF the el was put in the only other available parking spot and i went to put the garbage out one night and found a big f**k coloured spider (orange and black) idk what he was but he took up a fair size of the rear windscreen of the EL he was bigger than any spider ive ever seen its total span was bigger than 2 of my hands spread out (and i have big hands) its thangs were as fat as my thumb i had to get dad as he just scarred the hell out of me to much and even dad was a bit scared of him and it was fast for a big fella and hell strong dad stood on him with his work boot on and he kept going once dad lifted his foot

i should of took a pic of it
it would of been a world record i reckon

get a can of C**k lure and kill from Woolies and spray all the areas you cant see ie under the dash, console and seats etc. It wont kill them straight away but it has a residual action and eventually you'll knock the little f**k over. Im a pest controller by trade by the way.
