The girlfriend is terribly afraid of spiders. We are having a lot of them around here this year. Last weekend she saw one in the camper and drove 35 miles back home because she refused to stay in the camper after that. I told here I would set a Bug Bomb off inside it before we use the camper next weekend but, I am having second thoughts. Those bombs are designed for homes and my TT is only 22 feet long. That's a lot of toxic spray in a small area.

Is there anything else I can use to kill every insect inside the camper to keep her happy ? I've tried regular fly spray but, she doesn't think it does a good job of getting inside crevices and such.

Has anyone ever heard of bug bombs for small places ?

We were planing on going to concerts next weekend and I need her as designated driver so I need for her to come along.

Previous Conversation about Bug Bombs/RVs


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Seal up the doors and windows and stick a garden hose in the vent and fill the camper with water. Let it sit a day or so and drain.
BTW places have exploded from too much bug bombs.

Doktor Doom would work for your trailer. The 1/2 oz one is good for 52 cubic meters and your trailer is approx that size.

Bug bombs and sprays may kill most of the spiders, but those that survive---hoo-boy! [emoticon]

It would be easier to just get a new girlfriend.

Another question along the same idea. What can I spray the campsite with to kill spiders around it for a day ? Even if I have to do it each day.
