What’s on the topic for today? Well, I want to talk about mothballs.
Mothballs aren’t just one of those things that just irritate any good pest control operator or wildlife control operator because they are notoriously abused around the country. Every one their cousin thinks that if they throw some mothballs around, it’s going to, quote unquote, drive the animals away. You probably heard of this.
I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard one of these people said, tell me.
Well, I threw both balls underneath the deck and the skunk went away. And so it is just irritating. So you’re asking yourself the question if mothballs worked half as well as the public thought they did. Why are we in business or how can we be a business if they simply eliminate all of these wildlife issues? You just throw some mothballs around and all of a sudden the world goes away. Then why are we here? You know, this is the thing that people never seem to ask themselves.
So I would wanted to sort of delve into a little bit of on mothballs.
It’s a complex subject, but we can be geeky here in the PestGeek podcasts or I’m going to get a little geeky on you here today and hopefully give you some tidbits and things that you’re that you’d probably wouldn’t want to take the time to read on your own because it’s boring.
Oh, my God. So but it’s going to be helpful for you in terms of responding to your clients, to understanding your clients. And hopefully maybe you can push back just a little bit of the ignorance that’s out there regarding mothballs, because there is a lot of it.
So why don’t we get started at the beginning? Why do people think mothballs work?
Well, part of the reason people think mothballs work because wait for it.
Sometimes they do work. Yes. You’ve heard it from me. Yes.
