You may want to read the instructions and warnings---you do not want it to discolor or peel the finish--I would be careful--kills bugs and eats paint?????

The inside of the toppers carpet. And it went pretty well IMO I open the topper and tail gate and there were dead bugs ever where ha. So I drove around with the topper and tailgate open to air out then to the car wash to vaccum and sprayed my truck off so over all it did the job

My shell has carpet too.

1) I took it off and laid it on the grass, upside down.
2) I pressure washed it.
3) I flipped it over (normal orientation) and used a 2x4 to prop it up a couple of feet so I could get under it to finish pressure washing it.

I let it set that way for about a day and then flipped it back over and let the sun dry the carpet for a couple of days.

Not trying to thwart your plans, but I'd say that carpet is stuck like shit in a wool blanket. That may be a real pain in the ass.

+1

That carpet is not going to come out in 1 piece.
That carpet is not going to come out in 10 pieces.
That carpet is not going to come out in 100 pieces.
That carpet is not going to come out in 1000 pieces.

It's going to come out like tweezing your beard.


Bug-bomb, vacuum, bug bomb, vacuum.

4 or 5 treatments should do the trick.

Never really looked at it from that prespective. I parked my truck on a hill at my house and just spray it all down with a water hose for about 15 minuets to get all the ant that I could see. That's all that's really left

The bombs did work on the spiders and rollie polies but not the ants I opened up the side windows and the back and my tailgate and drove around for a hour or so and the smell of the bomb went away

OTOH... you should not have killed the spiders.

It's the balance of nature.

Ants eat termites
Spiders eat ants
Cats eat spiders


You should have bought a cat

Wouldn't that be a bit strange having a cat in my bed all the time I opted for raid and fogger bombs and a water hose

"Cargo kitties" are way more common than you think.
