When you are enjoying the outdoors on a camping trip, you expect you’ll need to deal with a few insects and pests. You don’t, however, want to continue dealing with them after you return home. If you do not have your pest control company treat your camping gear for pests, that is exactly what might happen. Before you put your tents and other camping gear away or park your RV for the season, have a pest control company take care of any hitchhikers you may have brought home from the campground.
There are also some other things you can do to avoid bringing home pests. One suggestion is being proactive in avoiding attracting them in the first place. Taking precautions with food storage and not bringing cologne or perfume that attracts pests are two suggestions. You should also keep a fire going during your camping trip to keep the pests away so they don’t end up in your clothing or camping gear. If you have an RV or tent, keep the screens in place throughout the trip and be watchful of any small holes that could serve as an access point for pests. Finally, keep all clothing in a sealed bag that you bring in and immediately put into the washing machine. Give your tents a good cleaning when you get home, as well.
