As with any other DIY project you’ll need some supplies. To kill the Top Ten Household pests, At the very least you will need;
- A sprayer capable of spraying insecticides. Garden sprayer, hardware store type sprayers won’t do. Insecticides have an ingredient to keep the ingredients from separating, this suspension product will deteriorate rubber seals and gaskets in regular garden sprayers. They will cause the seals and gaskets to swell closed. The sprayer stops working. If you are going to use a professional product the very least you could do was to get a professional model capable of handling pesticides. Look at this one. It’s made by B&G and has the proper Viton seals and gaskets. This unit will do a good job on all the projects we will be doing at Pest MD. B&G Home Professional Sprayer.
- It would also be a good idea to have a hand duster capable of dispensing insecticide dust and insecticide granular bait. I like this model because of ease of use. Some dusters are hard to compress, this one is soft and easy to squeeze. It also has a few extension tips making hard to reach places easy to treat correctly.
