Why Buy These Products

Pest control equipment is designed to make carrying out a pest control task easier, more convenient and less labor intensive. The right equipment can also make things safer for the person applying and other people who reside in the area. If you’re not a professional and handling a treatment the DIY way, you should only act under the guidance of properly laid out instructions, preferably under the guidance of pest control experts.

 

Pest control equipment are subject to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, long operating times and often rough handling by applicators. Equipment can also deteriorate due to age age and wear.  All of following factors eventually will take their toll on pest control equipment such as sprayers and containers.

 

With that being said, it would be wise to implement a regular preventative maintenance program which will save you money by ensuring your pest control equipment continues to be safe and effective to use as well as lasts a long time, thus saving you money by reducing the need to replace your products or pay for costly repairs.

 

General Equipment Guidelines For DIYers To Follow:

1. Refer to equipment owner’s manuals, or contact us here at Solutions Pest & Lawn for proper operating advice and best practices (ie. maintenance schedules etc.) Lack of proper usage or  maintenance duties can void the manufacturer warranties for some products.


2. Train yourself on the proper use of equipment. This takes practice, seeking help from pest control pros (you can contact us for advice, FOR FREE). Often, we find out from our customers that in an effort to get the pest control task done quickly, DIYers tend to operator their foggers and sprayers too hastily, or at a higher than recommended pressure. As a result, this will reduce equipment life, which means you have to send it back for repairs or get a brand new equipment product entirely.

 

Some other things that we have observed or heard from customers who have had problems with their pest control equipment is that novices may not check equipment before starting it up and take the proper preliminary precautions.  It’s very important to check components of pest control products such as line strainers (filters), motors, belts, hoses, nozzles etc. before starting equipment. This will help to identify any issues with your equipment and address them before the problem worsens.

 

It is very important to the longevity and effectiveness of your equipment to report problems promptly rather than just ignoring them.  If a pump on a sprayer sounds like it has a problem, it probably does so don’t wait until things stop working.

 

3. Record any damage/repairs/problems to your equipment and bring them up coherently to us either over the phone or via email so we could decide the proper course of action to take in regard to resolving the issue.

Examining Pest Control Equipment For Preventative Maintenance

 

To make sure you don’t miss anything, take a structured approach to developing your equipment management program.  Our suggestions below are a basic way to examiner and address issues in the fundamental parts of our pest control spraying equipment.

 

1. Spray Tank

Clean your spraying tank periodically to clear out any chemical buildup and debris. Depending on the types of chemicals and formulations of the pesticide products, they can potentially clog lines and make it difficult for your tank to function properly.  Most pumps will sustain serious damage if they run dry.

 

2. Filter

Check and clean your sprays line strainer or filter to ensure that no debris is clogges into your pump. When you can no longer rinse out the filter, this is when it should be replaced.  Replace the filter o-ring from time to time before it swells and no longer creates an airtight seal.



3. Pump

Service your pump according to manufacturer specifications.  Your equipment provider stocks pump repair kits. Service your pump just before or just after you plan to be using your sprayer to make sure the pump is always ready to go at its optimum levels. If you wait for your pump to fail before servicing it, you can expect longer downtime and more costly repairs.

 

4. Engine

If you are using a spraying rig or a motorized sprayer, you should maintain and service your sprayer’s engine according to manufacturer instructions.  Like the engine in your car, changing engine oil is the best thing you can do to keep your engine going stronger for longer.  Periodic tune-ups can keep your engine running and your technicians productive. Replace the pull cord before it breaks. If you see that it feels loose or like it’s hanging by the thread, it should be replaced promptly.

 

5. Hose Reel

Service the hose reel swivel periodically to prevent leaks.  Check the reel tensioner and locking pin for wear.

 

6. Spray Gun

Spray guns are the essential part of your equipment that goes through a lot of wear and should be monitored closely to see if it is in working condition. When it is going through where it should be serviced or replaced before it completely stops working to prevent any delay in conducting spray treatments. Servicing the spray gun can help reduce chemical spills and technician chemical exposure.

 

7. Check hoses

Check the spray hose and all supply hoses for excessive wear and damage.  Check clamps and connections to ensure good fit and an airtight seal. Be sure to check any filters, gaskets, washers, etc. Failure to do so can result in large spills which can end up being a health or environmental hazard.

 

A good preventative maintenance program is your best friend for reducing pest control equipment down time and keeping your equipment working at its best.  Time and money spent on preventative maintenance are well worth it as it will lessen the chances of the the product being completely non-functional, which means costly repairs or replacements.
