How to get rid of other common holiday park pests
Here’s some advice on dealing with some of the most common pests that plague owners of holiday parks.
Rats and mice
Rats and mice are a very real threat to holiday park and caravan owners. They can crawl through extremely small gaps and caravans provide an attractive home for the winter.
Both breed rapidly and destroy bedding, soil caravans with droppings and cause expensive and dangerous damage chewing through cables.
Make sure you seal up areas where rodents could enter and take a look at this blog on protecting your premises from rats over winter.
Cluster flies become a problem in autumn and winter when they leave fields and crawl into gaps on houses and caravans. Read our blog on how to get rid of cluster flies.
Seagulls are a huge pest in seaside towns and beyond. Luckily there’s plenty of ways to deter them, here’s what to do if you have a seagull problem.
Silverfish love to feed on the interiors of static caravans,, but don’t worry, you can get rid of them.
How to keep your holiday park pest free
The best way to keep your holiday park free from pests is to prevent infestations before they happen. A proactive pest control contract can help identify areas that are prone to pest infestations before they happen. We can also check caravans and grounds regularly and act quickly if we see any evidence of an infestation, as pests can breed extremely rapidly.
We also recommend:
- Checking that there are no holes for pests to get into caravans – rats and mice only need a tiny gap to enter!
- Removing all potential food supplies from caravans.
- Ensuring all caravans, receptions, restaurants and other areas are deep cleaned after the season, removing remnants of food that are attractive to pests.
