The NeverPest website shared several surefire tips regarding how to eliminate roaches from vehicles namely “remove” and “vacuum”.

The site wrote:

“Remove mats and rugs or anything else that is removable. The more bare, the better. It may seem like a shame to take out those decorator floor mats you just bought, but they will prove to be a hindrance when it comes to consistent cleaning.”

They also added:

“Vacuum the whole car front to back every week. The easiest way to do this is to take it to a hand car wash and use their attachments to get into those tight corners.”

Furthermore, the site encourages implementing a “no eating in the car” rule to prevent infestation.
