Flies all over!

I have got a serious fly problem in my trailer. I have killed thousands of them. And after not going in there for a few days they are all over again! Any ideas?

That's what I was thinking! It's safe to use in that small of a space right?

What is in that trailer? Bomb it after you find what the flies are after. Simple as that. After you set the bomb off don't go in there for a couple hours.

We stayed at WESTERN SKY'S RV PARK in Vado New Mexico last November. 2nd worse park I've ever stayed at. They had ton's of flies due to a cattle yard nearby.

A few flies got in when we opened the door but when we left the next day more flies appeared. My wife killed them and then more appeared. This went on most of the day as we drove west.

Couldn't figure out how they got in as we were pretty good about keeping the door closed and knew we didn't let that many in.

We finally figured that maybe they had collected on the two slide outs, top and bottom, and came in when we closed it.

Bug bomb should do the trick for now. Had a similar problem in my house several years ago. Turned out something crawled in the walls and died. Killed a bunch of flies. Unfortunately they had laid their eggs and next year..... More flies.

If you set off a bug bomb just be careful. Some of them are known to be flammable so I would double check all pilots are off or you may be picking up pieces of your camper for a long time.

If you set off a bug bomb it may be a good idea to remove the smoke & carbon monoxide detectors, and cove the LP gas detectors just to protect them.

Flies

they also might have gotten into the heat ducts and if you have a central vac system they could also have got in there so you might want to get an exterminator they will also kill the eggs

The flies that infest our homes have a lifespan of between 15 to 30 days. The lifespan varies depending on the temperatures and living conditions.
After bombing, maybe go to the garden store and buy a venus fly trap.

That is why one bug bomb is not enough, another 2 weeks later kills the next hatch before they lay eggs.
