Essential Pest Control Tips for Outdoor Camping

Enjoying Pest-Free Camping  

Welcome, fellow adventurers, to Greenhouse Termite and Pest Control’s ultimate guide to enjoying pest-free camping. There’s nothing quite like the thrill of pitching a tent under a starlit sky, roasting marshmallows over a crackling campfire, and spending quality time with your family and friends. But hold onto your marshmallows, because as much as we love spending time in the woods, there might be a few pesky critters crashing your camping weekend.   

However, if you’re itching for a wilderness getaway but don’t want to deal with pesky critters ruining your time, fear not! We understand the challenges that pests can pose to your outdoor adventures and have put together tips and tricks to keep those unwanted guests at bay. With our expertise, you can focus on making memories without worrying about critters ruining your trip.   

Choosing Where to Set Up Camp 

Picture this: you’ve stumbled upon the ideal spot to pitch your tent – surrounded by majestic trees, under a star-covered sky, with a peaceful lake shimmering in the moonlight. This is the sight of what adventurists dream of, but it’s not practical because alongside the serenity comes the potential for unwelcome critter guests like ticks, spiders, and fire ants.   

The first item on your camping checklist? Location! Steer clear of water sources, overgrown grass, and dense bushes and shrubs. Trust us, you don’t want to wake up to the relentless buzz of mosquitos or the fiery stings of fire ants. Instead, aim for the sweet spot – where the grass is maintained, the bushes are spread out, and you can still gaze up at the twinkling stars.    

Keep a Clean Campsite  

Now that we have found the perfect camping spot, it’s time to crawl into your tent under the blankets and sleep under the stars. But this time it’s not the pesky mosquitoes buzzing in your ear, it’s the sound of rustling outside your tent. Is it a curious raccoon? A disgusting rat?  With our expert tips and tricks, you’ll never encounter this issue again, whatever it may be.  You can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep without worrying about unwanted guests by following these preventative measures.   

The first thing before going to sleep is to make sure that any leftover crumbs or scraps are disposed of. Although those crumbs may seem like nothing when thrown out in the woods or the fire pit, the smell invites cockroaches, bears, raccoons, and mice to feast out in front of your tent. So, channel your inner neat freak and toss those crumbs in the trash (preferably a can with a tight-fitting lid). Believe the professionals, it’s the best way to keep unwanted critters from crashing your camping adventure.   

Let’s not forget about proper garbage disposal, it’s the key to keeping the critters away. Seal the trash bags tightly and keep the food in airtight containers. With these simple steps, you can sleep easily knowing that your campsite is off-limits to any uninvited guests.   

The Dos and Don’ts with Smells  

When it comes to the ultimate bug-be-gone tip for keeping the mosquitos away, nothing beats insect repellent. Be sure to pack extra of this magical spray and wear it like it’s your favorite perfume. This is your first line of defense against those persistent mosquitos and other buzzing nuisances. But don’t stop there – when it comes to hygiene, less is more. Shower using non-scented soaps and shampoos and ditch the perfume or scented deodorant. Why? Because mosquitoes have a sweet tooth for sweet smells, and you don’t want to be their next snack!  

At Greenhouse, we know the secret weapon to scare these irritating insects away – essential oils. The power of lavender and eucalyptus creates a natural barrier that repels bugs from coming anywhere near your campsite.
