Red face Help, I have Bugs in my Car!???

I have no idea what kind of bugs they are. They look lil bigger than a flea. They are a light black and have like a shell, cause when ya pick them up they are easy to crush. they are all over my car! I keep spraying. and Vacuuming. I havent gotten bit, neither has my kids so far. But their are more each day. they seem to be mostly on the cloth of the car (floor and back) not on my leather seats. Please help me understand what kind of bugs these are. I have been researchin on the net and cant seem to find them.

Thanks,


Casey

not sure what kind of bugs they are but more than likely they are living in either the carpet and pad or in the seat foam the only way to get rid of them will be to do a bug bomb or pull out carpet and replace it. they are probably feeding on the fibers in the carpet pad.
life begins when the kids leave home and the dog dies

Hi Casey,

They could be fleas or carpet beetles. There are several types of carpet beetles.
