Suffering from a cockroach invasion in your home or office is annoying, to say the least,
and also unsafe as roaches carry many germs and bacteria that can cause childhood
asthma and allergies along with other awful health complications. There is a very safe
and effective treatment for these pests, called cockroach bait that is widely used to
eliminate roach populations in many homes and buildings across the country today.
Baits – An Effective Tool to Eradicating Roaches
Cockroach baits are very effective tools at getting rid of roaches since they can be
used in targeted areas where roaches congregate. They also have a long shelf life and
provide minimal environmental impact. They can be used in sensitive areas since they
will not harm plants, animals, or humans. If you start seeing a roach or two here or there
in your home, then it is time to start your pest control treatment, since there is a huge
colony somewhere close to where you are seeing the lone roach.
Gel baits are applied using a syringe which plunges the bait in high roach traffic areas
such as crevices, corners, and around door frames. Any opening to your home or office
can be treated as well to prevent roaches from getting inside in the first place. Follow
the label directions thoroughly as this can make or break your treatment and is often
the only difference from doing the job yourself right the first time or having to hire an
expensive pest control technician to do the job for you.
Read Label and Follow all Directions
Once you have read the directions, make sure you check the bait after 30 days or how
ever long the label recommends. If the bait is gone, add some more if directed. There
are different types of baits available online from your DIY pest control supplier. These
baits are the same products used by the professionals. Some baits kill the roaches
slower, but allow the infected roaches to take the poison back to their nest and infect
the colony. Other baits kill the roaches on contact. You may want a combination of baits
to effectively treat your infestation.
