For the more common pests like roaches and ants, poisonous baits, which usually come in the form of gel baits, are easily the most effective. These baits will not only kill off these adult pests almost immediately as soon as they’re consumed, but the poison will spread to their ‘accomplices’ when their corpses are consumed by them. Insects such as ants, termites and even cockroaches themselves tend to practice this. This is precisely what makes a poisonous gel bait such a strong and effective method to get rid of these pests.
You might have heard of this many times before, but prevention is just as important as the cure when it comes to getting rid of pests. Preventing an infestation will save you not only the headache but a ton of time and money as well. A termite infestation, for example, can cost you thousands from the damage these insects could do to your home. This is more so if you have wooden furniture or structures in your house. Do not be surprised at seeing entire parts of your solid walls chewed through by the mighty termites. You should take some time inspecting your walls and foundation of your house if they’re built even partially of wood.
