They do get in your hair and bite and lay eggs. As such, they are travel bugs by any means necessary and can also occupy your car without actually being inside your home. I am just getting past an infestation of my car but because I don’t come past the inside door with my work clothes they didn’t occupy my house. I of course treated both places and at work, however I still feel like they’re living in my hair and scalp and here’s proof. I kept getting these weird bite circle marks on my scalp while experiencing the burning and itching of something biting me. As I sat in my car one day this is what I found and had previously felt biting at the nape of my neck. I’m so traumatized by all of this that I won’t get back in my car and drive it ever again. I walk and won’t even ask friends for a lift. We had them four years ago and that’s why I never walk past the inside door with my clothes on. They go straight in a plastic bag and stay there until I can get a ride to the laundromat. I’m so tired of living like this. You can see the red dot where it bit me and possibly laid eggs in the first photo. In the second one it shows the insect crawling up the inside of the driver side window, probably to drop into my hair again and the third is of bites on my left forearm from being in the car. God help me because I’m literally going crazy. I hope this can help others understand that if you see one there’s more and you should seek a pro immediately. Also the pros should stop telling people that they don’t stay in your car and that they don’t get in your hair because on the hottest days of the summer they survived the heat inside my car without a food source, because I refused to go back after spotting the bug, for a week in the car without any other treatment. I truly believe you need chemicals in order to rid yourself of them and even then I’m not so sure. P.S. I cannot bring myself to drive my car again. Id rather buy a new car, seriously.
