They should also be sprayed along windows or other edges to improve the strength of the barrier itself.
Not only that but UV rays can decrease the effectiveness so you want to make sure you spray them when the sun is not at its hottest and brightest, which may mean waiting for a slightly cloudy day or waiting until later in the evening when the sun has started to go down. The most important thing is that you keep your children and pets far away from the liquid while it’s still wet. You need to make sure it’s completely dry before letting them anywhere near it because that’s when it’s safe for your loved ones.
While it’s wet it’s going to be easily tracked and moved and it’s a whole lot easier for your child or pet to unknowingly ingest it. That can cause harm to them and it’s something to avoid at all costs. Another minor factor is that these products are quite heavy to carry and since they need to be sprayed around the entire outer edge of your home it can be difficult to carry them.
These are actually a little less well known but they still provide you with a great deal of benefits and they’re really easy to apply. They also last a whole lot longer than a liquid insecticide because you can put it down and have it there for up to six months before you have to add more or reapply.

That way you can make sure you’re not getting even smaller insects in. There are some finer products as well as some that use larger granules.
Those that use the larger pieces are going to take longer to absorb, which means they’re going to provide you with an extended release formula and help get rid of more of the insects that might come into your home. Silica gel additives can be a great option for these types of products as well because they make sure that the powder actually sticks long enough that it can get down into the ground and start creating the barrier.
Otherwise, you could end up with problems as your powder starts to just blow away before it can really start doing anything for you or your household. The best gels are going to be the larger pellets and they’re going to include that gel additive so that you can get the best results and the most long lasting ones as well.
These are another popular option when it comes to getting rid of insects and they tend to work best if you know where they are actually coming in or moving through or even if you know where they are nesting. These traps are small and more centrally located so you don’t have as much capability of keeping the insects out of your entire house but rather out of a smaller area of space.
You can put them right by cracks in your foundation or by windows where you know they are getting through specifically. You generally want to use these in combination with other types of insecticides unless you have a smaller problem.
These glue traps use pheromones inside of them to attract the roaches and get them stuck in the trap. Others may use these pheromones in conjunction with pellets that they take back to their colony and those will kill the rest of the colony, similar to ant traps. It’s important to note that these can be very dangerous for children so you want to make sure they are put in places where your child or pets won’t be able to get into them or move them as they could be injured by the traps themselves. It’s important to keep them in areas that they will not be noticed or will be out of the way.
