Bugs Sneaking Up On Me

Whatsup FF Not sure if anybody else has this issue but I live in Louisiana and where I park my car, right across from the parking lot is like a little jungle. But long story short.. I never open my window in my Focus but couple days ago, I saw a big moth in my rear window and yes it was inside the car, yesterday a fruit fly was just buzzing in my front window and this morning a big old mosquito that look like it came from the African jungle or something just chillin in my front window... Since it's getting warmer, lot more bugs are starting to roll around LA but wanted to know if anyone else was experiencing this problem.

Lol when i saw the title of this thread i thought "bugs hmm...dct,mft" but no its REAL bugs!

The most obvious place i would look at first would be the air inlet covers just under the top portion of your hood, just forwards of your windshield wiper arms. There is one on either side if i remember correctly and the plastic cover which has a grate on it can easily be popped up. Maybe they are crawling in there?

I have no clue how they could get into your car though my friend.

There's a moth the crawled into the space between my taillight housing and the body. I would have to remove the housing to get it out. Been in there for months now.

Can you put a wet/dry vac right up to the gap and try to suck it out?

Highly possible but I've had this car since last march, and I'm just recently having this problem.

I tried that my friend, also tried the hose and the coin car wash gun. I managed to blast a wing off but the rest is stuck lol. Once it warms up enough I'll attempt to take off the housing.

I've found spiders have really enjoyed living in my driver side mirror since the very beginning.
