We have a lot of ladybugs in our RV and I’m thinking of purchasing your ladybug trap, however, I’m also wondering if I should have some type of spray to apply around the doors and pullouts as that’s where they seem to be getting in. I read the testimonials and customers refer to a product named ‘cypermethrin’.
Please tell me what the absolute best product is to use.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
Our LADYBUG LIGHT TRAP would be ideally suited for an RV. You could plug it in and turn it on every fall and spring whether you were using the RV or not. The trap would effectively collect any ladybugs which might appear and quickly round them up and stop them from nesting. This would effectively decrease the amount of spraying needed inside the Recreational Vehicle. But if you wanted to control the problem it would be best to stop them from entering in the first place.
To do this you should treat the outside of the RV with CYPERMETHRIN. It’s highly irritating to the ladybugs and they’ll avoid surfaces where it’s been applied. Simply spray down the outside top and sides every fall and spring and you should be able to keep them out. As explained in our LADYBUG CONTROL ARTICLE, this invasive pest will return year after year to the same structure seeking winter harborage. If they’re a problem inside, be sure to use some PT-PHANTOM throughout. It’s just about odorless and goes on dry making it ideally suited for inside applications without making a mess.
