buy flexible 1/4 inch clear tubing at home depot for $2.98/20ft, cut proper length, remove bulb, pour clean water inside the light casing using the tube. Insect(s) will float to the water surface. Do not overfill. Siphon water with insect(s) out of casing then use the tube like a straw to extract remaining water. Let case dry before placing bulb back.

Ps: I have not tried this but if it does not work, add a goldfish to your new aquarium.

A spider has taken residence in my trunk(rent-free, mf'er!) and have been busy decorating with its web. Got a insect trap and left it in the trunk. Hope to catch it before it populates the whole car with its descendents.

Had a dead fly in the vents next to my rear window. Was annoying and impossible to get its body out, then one day it just disappeared. Wonder where it went?

In my garage, I leave most spider cob webs alone, they hunt and kill insects and bugs. So it's a symbiotic thing.

This is probably a sign you don't drive your car enough

Did the spider starve to death or was it killed by the V-8?

Now THAT is gonna suck....

Luckily for my area, it's too dry and much too cold for any smart spider to take residence in my car. So they just take residence in my house

What I heard: Send out for the Angel Eye mod.
Me: Yes, thats a good idea. Why don't I buy you dinner tonight?

Better than a rats nest in the engine bay. In the winter when it is cold, a warm car engine is an ideal place for a rats nest.... until ofcourse you begin to drive like many of us do and the engine reaches 250 degrees. Sesame rat anyone?

It's nothing I haven't had before, I'm sure (read: Chinese buffets)

It's dead. Is there an easy way to remove this?
I bought my car with a small dead fly in the speedometer.

That's pretty funny. I'm sure I got a bunch of them in my house as well. I hear you eat a few a year while sleeping. Great! Just what the doctor ordered.

Anyway, I set the trap 3 days ago. So far, nothing. Maybe he moved out. I'm hoping.
