Fumigate and kill spiders/insects without damaging interior?
Posted 03 June 2009 - 01:51 PM
What can I use to fumigate the car interior, but won't be toxic to myself, and won't stain the seats/plastic/windows? I need to take care of this problem or else it won't be safe to drive the car.
BTW, I keep my car interiors CLEAN. I parked the car under several trees and the spider must have lived under my Weathertech vent visor because I saw some webs in a corner. I have to roll down my window to show my ID to get into work, so that is probably how the spider got in. It wasn't a coincidence that I first saw the damn thing a few minutes after I rolled down the window.

I heard some recommendations to try Raid Fumigator which supposedly does not leave an oily residue and just fumes the interior of the house w/o being toxic to humans. Any second opinions?

The bug bombs that you can get in the supermarket or hardware store are obviously used in houses that have furniture and plastic countertops...so they are probably a pretty safe bet, except that a car interior is much smaller than even a small room. I don't know if the standard flea etc. bomb kills spiders, you would have to read the label. Since you have read about this spider in your locale, what was the recommended remediation?
What little I know about detailing I learned from David Fermani.

edit for pics. This is why you don't want to mess with the reclouse

I suspected that it came in through the window when I had to show my ID, because there was a rather thick web under the Weathertech vent visor. I am not sure if I want to remove those visors but they don't seem to really serve a function at this point other than give poisonous spiders some refuge from the weather.
Jakerooni: Wow, that is some serious damage. I'm glad you were able to save the leg. After running some internet searches it seems odd that they don't have a drug that fights brown recluse venom. A series of antibiotics seems like a very long and potentially flawed method of treatment.
