3 Pest Control Supplies That Are Necessary For The Job

When you are going to spray pests, it is very important that you have all of the supplies that you need to perform the job safely and correctly. This article will discuss 3 pest control supplies (which can be found in stores like ASE Pest & Weed Supplies) that are necessary for the job. 


The most common, but also most important pest control supply that you are going to need is going to be the pesticide itself. There are a variety of pesticides out there, but it is going to be up to you to choose the one that is the best for the job. For example, if you are going to spray a home that is being overrun with ants, you may want to use specific granules that the aunts carry into their home, take to their queen, who then dies from eating the poison. On the other hand, if you are dealing with spiders, you may want to use a spray that can kill or otherwise terminate the spiders that come in contact with it. Since you can't get a hold of the pesticides that you need without first being certified to spray pests, it is crucial that you have this certification with you when you go to purchase your pesticides. 

A Sprayer 

In order to properly and safely spread most of the pesticides that you are going to be using, you are going to need a sprayer. These sprayers are going to range from basic to advanced, but their main components are going to include a holding tank to safely hold the chemicals used to kill the pests, and a tube extending off the holding tank that has a spray nozzle at the end to allow you to spray the chemicals. In order to feed the chemical through the tubing, you are going to want to pump the pump at the top of the sprayer. Some of these tanks can be worn as backpacks, while others will need to be carried using a handle on top of the tank. Some of the more advanced sprayers offer a variety of streams when you spray, as well as more durable and long-lasting material for the tank, such as stainless steel. 

Protective Gear

When you are spraying pests, you are using several different chemicals that can sometimes be harmful for you to inhale, or to come in contact with your skin. Because of this, it is crucial that you have the appropriate protective gear when you are spraying. This will include a pair of protective goggles to keep your eyes safe, gloves to protect the skin of your hands, a respirator or other form of mask to stop you from inhaling the chemicals as you are spraying them, and a body suit with long sleeves to protect the rest of your body.
