How can I get rid of a spider in my car?

Question: I saw a spider in my car today, but I was unable to kill it. What can I do now? I won't be comfortable in my car until I know it is dead. Do you provide any type of service that could help me out? Would a small bug fogger work?

Answer: First, let's not use a bug fogger in the car. Those things are useless wherever you use them, and especially inside the car. That spider is not happy to be there either, so don't worry. It is not going to survive long inside the car, nor is going to bite. The car environment is very dry and has no food, which means it will be dead in a day or so and you will never see it again (it will die in some small crack or crevice.) You could use a few household sticky traps (typically for cockroaches) in the car and maybe trap it.
