Bugs in the CPAP

RE: Bugs in the CPAP
A heads-up about the Mint family plants; They are a very invasive plant and will try to takeover everywhere.

No, walking on my arm. When I found the centipede it was hiding in the bed frame. Hence, the concern. It could have been hiding anywhere. 

I plan to buy an end plate (thanks for the suggestion), and leave the mask attached. I have a cat and a dog, hence, the removal during the day. I have spares if they tear them up.
CPAP is a journey like “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a long slow journey. You will face many problems and pick up many friends along the way. Just because you reach the poppies, it doesn’t mean you are in Kansas.

RE: Bugs in the CPAP
The end plate still leaves an outlet opening to attach a hose. Why not just slip the machine in a zip-lock bag?

In truth this is just something I never worried about, and probably won't. I think you have already exterminated your problem.
