If you were given a new truck to use for a route that's mainly residential perimeter pest control but sometimes needs to handle a few inside problems as well as any organic accounts...

How would you set it up?

for example:
-backpack sprayers? electric or hand pump?

-roller pump gas rig or electric?

-25, 50 or 100 gallon tank?

-J9 nozzle or one from a garden hose?

-How many B&G's?

-would it be set up for ANY possible pest control situation just in case, or mainly for what's needed?

just curiousThink

This is how my truck is setup and I like 90% of the time. Its setup to handle anything from mosquito barriers to full termite treatments

2 B&Gs (one for non-repellents and the other for pyrethroids etc)

1 Birchmeier 4 gall backpack

100 gallon gas roller pump rig with JD9

1 shoulder bag for carrying baits, flushing agents, screwdrivers, mirrors, glueboards etc.

1 Stihl mister blower

1 bucket of contrac/resolv and bait stations

If I were only doing P/C, I would ditch the 100gallon gas rig and go with a 25 electric (definitely sticking with the JD9 though). Then I would add a second backpack to mimic the B&Gs. Only in extreme cases do I use the rig for pest control. The rest of the time its just taking up space or carrying water to refill my backpack with.
