Can anyone recommend a product that they've used to fumigate a trailer to kill ticks?

We just bought and brought home a used Scamp infested with them.

(I'd include more red faces but I'm only allowed 8).

I'm sure one of those flea/tick bombs you set off and stay away for 24 hours would do the job. Used to use them at home in the basement before leaving on vacations. Keep the trailer closed and be sure and remove all eating items. The fog spray gets into everything. Oh, and let us know which rallies you maybe attending.......

Never in doubt, often wrong

That's what I figured but was unsure of which brand to use. (There's a lot of info online). Thanks.

There are different species of ticks in different parts of the country. Therefore I would recommend a call to a pest exterminator for advice. If the first one won't give you advice go to another.

I'm in the pest control business. One or 2 of those bug bombs should do the job. I would also recommend removing as many as possible with a vacuum first the more you can remove with the vacuum the happier you will be.
Make sure you wash off any surfaces you plan on preparing food on before you camp in it.

I have used the fogger style for the house & camper my advice is the as the others ...but I have found that IF you leave it closed up longer it works better. I set them off as we leave to go out of town for at least 3 days.That way no one is tempted to open & door & run in for just a minute.Then when we come home I just clean everything but don't mop or wipe down woodwork for a couple of more days. Then in 2 weeks I fog again and leave everything shut up for at least all day.

I have to fog the house & camper a lot because we have a problem with wild cats on our street so we also have to do our yard a lot for fleas. Thank goodness I have neighbors on both sides of me that do their yards at the same time. Now if the crazy lady behind us and down the street would just STOP putting out food for the animals.

Good luck
