What To Look For In A Roach Bait
There are a few important things to consider when choosing a roach bait, let’s take a look:
Child and Pet Safety
If you have young children or pets hanging around you might want to go to a bait station because all of the bait gets safely contained inside. Even if your child finds the station, they shouldn’t be able to get inside and get any of the bait. If you use a gel bait in areas where they can get to it could become a hazard to their health. There is no 100% sure way to keep kids and pets safe so it’s best to keep the bait in areas they cannot access.
Most of the gels you buy can be used indoors and outdoors but its still important to know that they are not all like that. The type of gel you choose also depends a lot on the type of problem you have. If roaches are coming in from the outside through cracks in your foundation, then the simple solution is to fill the cracks with the gel.
If you are unsure about how they are getting in, then it might be more important to choose a gel that can get used inside and outside the home.
How Fast It Works
One of the most important things to consider is, “how fast is this going to kill the roaches?” If you are dealing with a serious infestation, this is probably the number one question on your mind. Most roach gels begin to work instantly and do not require a lot of attention, but some take a little bit longer to work so be sure to choose the right gel for your situation. If you have a severe infestation, you may want something that works quickly-even if it doesn’t last as long.
