I suspect he was in the cover of the chairs I take to outside concerts and now he resides in my car. LF and I lifted the panel covering the spare looking for him and he made a dash for the crack between the top and bottom seats. He is getting to see some of the country side as I drive from place to place so he is happy. Now how to get rid of him. He ran across my foot as I was driving last night so measures need to be taken. I have considered sprays and insect bombs but really don't want to have to breathe that stuff afterwards. I was once told by an exterminator that a water bug can live in the wall for 6 months, come out and find/eat part of an aspirin and is good to go for another 6 months. MKP....ever have this issue? I would ask Carl but I'm sure he would recommend dynamite Well at least you KNOW what kind of critter you are chasing. I picked up something in the Dodge at the start of summer, LiL Bast-rd knawed on my gas peddle leg wile i was driving. Orththo bug killer and let the truck sit for a couple weeks in the heat, i THINK i got him, no bites lately. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
