Mobile Home Pest Control Tips- Part2

Know the Tools Needed To Kill Pests If They Do Get In

Obviously, the answer to your pest problem will depend on several factors, the size of the infestation, the type of pest and your budget. However, there are a few hard and fast rules that will help with any bugs or rodents. 

First, always make sure that you use the recommended amount of product first when applying sprays or baits. Using too much can actually have a negative effect on the overall pest elimination process.

Also, you should be sure to carefully read, understand and follow the manufacturer’s directions whenever using chemical products to kill or deter pests in and around your home.

For some termites, sprays aren’t as effective. The bugs are often hidden deep inside the home, therefore you’ll need a professional to come out.

Good News! You Can Do The Work Yourself

Many people think that the only way to get rid of annoying pests such as ants, roaches, and rodents is to call in the help of a professional exterminator.

Thankfully, this isn’t always the case. Of course, massive infections will require professional intervention but small problems and preventative measures can be done by anyone. With a little preparation you can, in fact, get the same results by doing the work yourself.

In addition to saving money and still killing the pests, you will also have complete control over exactly what goes into your mobile home and in what quantities, meaning that you can be assured that your pets and children will not suffer any negative side effects from unknown and potentially hazardous chemicals that might be applied by a professional service.

Even some run of the mill products like off the shelf roach killer can be harmful if applied improperly.

Furry Friends

This time of the year garners more rodent infestations as they are trying to find food. It’s a constant battle to keep critters out of your mobile home.

These animals are scared and simply trying to survive in an area that isn’t made for them so have a little compassion, if possible.

There are traps you can use to capture them and then drive them to a nice wooded area and let them out. If that’s not possible, please be as humane as possible when killing them. There is a liquid that you can spray that keeps the opossums away. It’s been very effective but you do need to spray all under the home once a month. It’s the smell that they don’t like so it keeps them away but doesn’t kill them.
