I have a few questions regarding the use of indoor foggers.
How are foggers best used for interior applications?
How effective are they?
What pest are they effective against?
How is the brand you offer superior to the off the shelf brands available at your local supermarket or home improvement store?
Here are the answers to your questions:
1) How are foggers best used for interior applications?
Good question. In over 30 years of working in this industry, I’ve never seen anyone use them effectively for a “meaningful” pest control solution. I have seen where they can knock down existing insect populations, but in every case I’ve seen the target pest rebounds as if nothing was ever done. In most cases this rebounding took just days. So I guess the answer is if they’re not “used” at all.
2) How effective are they?
See my answer to question 1.
3) What pest are they effective against?
Most that you will find on their label. However, it all depends on what you consider to be effective. As stated above, they will kill live, out in the open active insects. But in 99.9% of the cases what you see is inconsequential (not significant) compared to the real problem and this is true for any insect (roaches, ants, fleas, flies just to name a few). This is why whatever you are targeting will almost always rebound and be active in treated areas within days of the last treatment when foggers are the only product employed.
4) How is the brand you offer superior to the off the shelf brands available at your local supermarket or home improvement store?
What we sell are what the professionals use. In other words, companies like Terminex and Orkin don’t buy their products from supermarkets; they buy them from distributors like us. And though we sell to professional companies, we also sell to businesses and homeowners that are willing to do their own pest control using the best products available. Our concept is real simple; do your own pest control and save 70-90% of what it would cost to hire a service company. This means if you’re willing to do a little work, you might as well arm yourself with the best products out there. And one thing is for sure, foggers are about as opposite as the “best” there is!
So to answer your question, our products (at least 99% of them) aren’t what you find at Lewes and Home Depot. In fact, they send us customers all the time since they’re located on either side of our retail outlet store. Though they can help with “average” problems, many times the big box stores realize the problem their customer has is beyond the scope of their know how or their products and that we are the ones (if anyone) that can help.
In summary, if you have a pest problem, you have to decide if you will hire a service company or do the work yourself. And if the answer is “do the work myself”, you might as well use what the professionals would use. And that’s where we come in. For now I suggest you either read our online articles all of which are listed at www.bugspray.com to see just what the pro’s would be using or give us a call on our toll free 1-800-877-7290 and I’m sure one of our tech reps will be able to help you further.
