Critter Control

Whether they walk, fly, crawl or slither, critters are not welcome during your emergency (or ever?). Consider the following:

  • Ant Control - One simple way to keep ants from getting to food (like a pet's food dish) is to put the dish on a cookie sheet that has 1/2" of water in it. The ants will drown if they try to get to the food.
  • Bird Control - Beware that some birds, like ravens, can tear foil right off the top of a pan to get to the food inside. Be sure to secure your food so birds will not enjoy it before you do.
  • First Aid Kit - Make sure your First Aid Kit is prepared to deal with consequences caused either by Critters or by your attempts to get rid of them.
  • Insect Repellent - Make sure you have insect repellent in your kits.
  • Mosquito Netting - It is a good idea to invest in some mosquito netting to use in case you get caught outdoors during mosquito season, especially if you need to sleep outdoors. Mosquitoes are not just a nuisance, they can be deadly. And the ones that carry West Nile Virus don't come out until after dark. This netting is lightweight, inexpensive and stores well. Get some.

  • Poisons - If you store Poisons like ant or rodent poison, be sure to not store it near any food products or equipment used to prepare or serve food. Also, since space might be at a premium, be sure to not let these things be exposed to young children.
  • Secure Food - To avoid attracting Critters such as bees and bears, keep all food securely stored. Make good use of trailers, autos, steel boxes or whatever. However, make sure the temperature in such places does not exceed those recommended for the food stored there.
