Pest Control Equipment

Many devices are being used to fight pest invasion. The equipment is the most important part of a successful business. Without proper equipment knowledge and expertise are worthless.

Sprayers

There are a few types of sprayers, and they all work on a similar principle. Handheld canned sprayers are the simplest. You can find them in any store for an affordable price. These sprayers are often used for homes and small areas. They are filled with pesticides and other toxic materials. The most important thing about these is to read the back of a can and get a full insight into the ingredients.

Dusters

Dusters are used for powder materials. There are two types of dusters – electric and hand-controlled. A vast majority of companies apply the toxic materials with the help of a duster. Indoors, dusters are used to treat bugs, ants, silverfish, and other insects that hide in wall cracks. However, dusters can be used outdoors as well, to prevent ants, centipedes, and other critters from coming inside. The problem with dusters is that there is a learning curve to applying a thin layer of the material instead of leaving clumps of dust. That’s why it’s important that you leave the job to the professionals.

Foggers

Foggers are devices that create a fog which usually contains a particular pesticide or other toxic components. These devices are often used by people because they are a low-cost substitute for professional services. However, there are some dangers related to foggers, especially with unprofessional handling. The best thing you can do is call a company and let the professionals handle the situation.

Foamers

Foamers are good for ants and other insects that are coming from wall cracks. They can also be used in wall voids for eliminating odor from dead animals or insects such as termites and beetles. The foam will linger and keep the product you apply suspended a long time, to ensure good coverage. These devices can be used both by professionals and beginners. However, it’s always best to let the professional handle your issue.

Safety equipment

The safety equipment is one of the most important factors of a successful process; if you don’t want to hire a professional, make sure that you use precautionary measures before you start applying the toxic products. Wear respirators, gloves, and safety goggles at all times! Many chemicals used in the process are aggressive and can cause severe skin damage.
