Enjoy all the summer season has to offer with proactive pest control. We’re keeping bugs away before they become a nuisance.
From the backyard to the kitchen those pesky bugs want to enjoy your living spaces just as much as you do. But armed with a few pest control products you can keep them at bay and out of your living spaces.
You work hard to make your home an enjoyable space for family and friends. Just like any DIY or home improvement project proactive pest control should be on the to-do list in order to keep your home bug free. Let’s look at three pest control products for your home:
Naturally ants are drawn to the kitchen so I use Raid® Ant and Roach killer on all the baseboard areas to help keep this space free of pests. It’s meant to control all types of pests: ants, roaches, water bugs, silverfish, crickets and spiders. To use give the aerosol can a good shake and the depress the large black button on top. The nozzle provides a broad spray pattern perfect for baseboards and doorways.
You can also use the Raid® Ant & Roach killer directly on bugs. One application will keep killing roaches and carpenter ants for up to 4 weeks. I like to spray all the baseboards and doorways in and around the kitchen. Basically, apply the spray wherever you see ant trails or easy entry points into your home.
In addition to the spray you may consider Raid® Ant Baits. You can place the baits inconspicuously along ant trails. As the ants pass through the bait station they will feed on the bait. Consequently, when they return to the colony and transfer the bait to the queen and the others, thereby killing the entire colony.
Raid® Ant Bait Features:
- kills the entire colony
- lasts for 3 months
- child resistant
- low profile fits snugly in corners
Nobody wants ants in their home so take control of this pest and put out Raid® Ant Baits. On the underside, there is a handy sticker where you can write the date so you know when to replace the bait if necessary.
Moving outdoors where your family wants to take advantage of the warm weather but not get eaten alive by bugs.
