Cable Box and Insects

lucky_12May 20, 2011

I just brought home a cable box that looks like it�s been used and in someone else�s home. I�ve heard horror stories about infested boxes infecting the home its brought into. I put the box in a plastic bag and plan to let it sit overnight to see if anything is living in it. Is there anything else I can do?

Except that the odds of it working have been reduced close to zero.

Bleach is not going to be friendly to electronics.
