Roach in E90

I bought an E90 about a week ago, I was eating in the car when I saw a roach on the ceiling. The roach ended up going inside the headliner. I work for the BMW dealer I bought it from, so I took it to service to smoke them out. Now, they're going to remove the headliner to make sure there are no dead roaches in there.

Once I get back the car, I am going to do a full detail cleaning (seats taken out, carpet shampoo'ed, etc).

Anyone ever experienced this? If so, your advice? I feel as though I will be paranoid for as long as I have this car.

Don't know how but I got roaches a couple months ago, I tried this https://www.target.com/p/raid-double...t/-/A-21565703

Will get those too but I bought these once I get the car back to be safe: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I think the dealer used foggers already unfortunately Is that a bad thing?

Those can work too, the only advantage is the raid brings egg killers. If they used foggers it's not necessarily a bad thing, they can just sometimes stain your headliner and leave residue everywhere. They also do not work in cars, they might kill a few roaches but it doesn't get all of them so they'll just come back

Use an ozone machine--it will kill everything in the car without leaving a nasty scent or any chemicals behind. Just be sure to air it out for 3-4 hours because ozone is heavier than air so if you breathe it, it can collect in your lungs. Not good. Works like a charm everytime and your car will smell perfect once the ozone smell clears.
