How can I bugproof my CPAP?

You mean real bugs? I would expect the inlet air filter would not let bugs in?

Well my CPAP may need protecting from a certain BUG and the software may have bugs, but yes I mean real bugs!

True, they can't get sucked in through the filter, if it is properly in place and not lost somewhere in the past, but I move around quite a bit.

Let me rephrase that.

I move from house to house and interstate quite a bit and it takes some time in one location to become aware of the insect population and effectively 'manage' them. Cleaning Up My Act

In the meantime there's this big double doorway to a fun tunnel that winds through the landscape leading to an enclosed pool of nice fresh water. Much more convenient than a distant shower or laundry.

A perfect spot for a new base and, if some of them lose their grip in one of those occasional blizzards, they get a free ride to a totally new underground maze of tunnels and caves with enough essentials to last a lifetime.

Where I am presently, because I also move around quite a bit (in my sleep), is on the floor in a room full of really tiny ants that just love to explore.

Should I wind the pressure down a few notches and turn on the ramp for them? Would a heated hose help them to move faster and hang on better? Is there a mask with little doors that slam shut when I'm not using it? Is that drum of DDT still out in the shed?
