    I put strips my exterminator gave me in my car. Luckily we're having a heatwave and the cars parked in the sun all day. Would anyone know if I'll find evidence of dead bed bugs if they were in there? Or is it just a deterrent? Thank you.

    Personally I would refer to your exterminator as to what to expect you know?

    What are the strips?
    If they are poisonous to humans, I hope you're not in the car until it is safe.
    The sun will not heat up ALL areas in the car.
    If a bug is hiding in a cool spot and the poison kills it there, you wouldn't see it.

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    I was told not t be in car for more than 6 hours, but I haven't driven it since it was put there.
