Spiders

Is there a good product that can be placed inside a pop up to kill and/or repel spiders that may find a wintering over popup a comfy little home? Want something that will be safe to all materials and safe to humans when winter is over.

Hi!

I can't even keep spiders out of my HOUSE in the winter...
Your best option might be to just "bug bomb" the camper when you get it out in the spring.
Pop it up, stick the bomb in there, and leave it closed up tight for a day or so.
Then open, air out, and vacuum up the little dead critters!

good luck!

Francesca

Thx Francesca. You are right about not being able to keep em outta the house. Haha, however I wanna stay away from bug bomb as the insecticide will compromise the scotchgard on the canopy...I think?

Hi, again

I don't have a popup, but isn't the canopy vinyl?
Even if it's nylon, I'm not sure that bugbomb would interfere with scotchguard...I think that's a silicone base.
I wouldn't think a bomb would hurt anything - most of it's gaseous, and insecticidal residues will settle on inside surfaces.
I've used it in my trailer lots of times- haven't noticed any staining of fabrics or anything like that.
Just lots of dead bugs!
One more thing, now that I think about it-
Back in my tentcamping days, I used to set a bug bomb off in my canvas tent before I put it away for the winter.
I never noticed any damage from that, but it was canvas, not nylon...


Maybe other popup owners will chime in to advise something else, though.

Francesca

See if you can find a product called "Tempo". I've used it everywhere and it works on lots of the little creepies. It is about as safe an insectacide as I've been able to find. It is expensive.
