How To Choose The Right Roach Repellent For Your Home
If you have roaches in your home, it does not mean that you need to get down on your hands and knees every day and start scrubbing-it could be a simple freak accident. Maybe there is a small crack in your foundation, and they are drawn into your home by a smell. We don’t always know how we get bugs in the home, all we know is that when they come in-we want them out.
Cockroaches carry a variety of diseases, so you do not want them lingering around your home and causing your family to get sick. If they come in contact with food, it could cause food poisoning and other issues like asthma.
The kind of repellent you choose depends a lot on your situation and what you are looking to accomplish. There are repellents out there for large infestations as well as small ones, so you want to pick the right one.
If you are dealing with an infestation and you know exactly where it is-a spray repellent is perfect because it kills the roaches on contact and it does the job very quickly. It is also straightforward for the other roaches to become infected just from being near one that got covered with the spray. Roaches like to feed on the dead carcasses of other roaches, so this is also a great way to kill off any lingering roaches.
The only issue with this is you must know exactly where the infestation is for this to work. You cannot just spray all over the home and expect the roaches to stay away.
These are a great method because you can just set them and forget them. Repellent pouches are a combination of a bunch of scents that roaches hate so they stay away from them. If you have a general idea of where the roaches are coming from you can place the pouches at those areas to prevent them from going any further. This allows you to create a nice barrier around your home.
This is probably the most efficient method if you know what kind to buy. The bigger the range, the better and if you can find one that penetrates through walls you’re good to go. Ultrasonic repellers sent out waves of noise that only cockroaches can hear. This is great because there is no spraying, or setting traps, or any of that. You plug the repeller into the wall, and it begins working immediately.
