Pest Control for Mosquitos and More!

RVing and camping are great ways to enjoy the outdoors while still having all the comforts of home. But one thing that can turn a camping trip into a nightmare is dealing with pests. No one wants to be agitated by mosquitoes, ants, or other critters when they're trying to relax in nature.

Luckily, there are a few handy tricks you can do to keep the pests away. Here are a few tips for pest control in RVs and campers!

Use Mosquito Netting, Coils, or Lanterns

Pest Control

 Use mosquito netting over doors and windows to keep mosquitoes out. You can also use mosquito coils or lanterns inside your RV or camper to keep them and other annoying pests away. Make sure you empty out or cover any standing water sources around your campsite, as this is where mosquitoes lay their eggs. Keep food covered up and clean up any crumbs or spills right away. Store garbage in sealed containers away from your campsite. Lastly, don't forget to check for ticks after spending time outdoors, especially if you've been hiking or camping in woods or tall grass!

Install Door and Window Screens

Install door and window screens to keep ants and other insects from getting inside. Keep food in airtight containers and clean up any crumbs or spills right away. Put pet food bowls away after your pet has finished eating. Inspect your RV or camping gear for insects before packing it away. If you find anything, wash it with hot water and soap or throw it away. Be sure to check for ticks and other parasites after spending time on outdoor adventures.

Keep Food Sealed Up

One of the best ways to keep pests out of your RV or camper is to make sure they don't have any food to attract them in the first place. Keep all  food in tightly sealed containers and dispose of garbage regularly. Wipe down surfaces after cooking and eating, and sweep the floors often.

Keep Your Rig Clean

Camping Dishes

Another great way to prevent pests is to keep your RV or camper clean. Pests are attracted to dirt and clutter, so regular cleaning will help deter them. Vacuum regularly and dust all surfaces. If you have any spills, clean them up immediately.
