Hi, I recently made a purchase of trap, coyote urine, peanut stuff. I have a question on eliminating indoor insects like spiders, pill bugs and those thousand leg things that you squish and there is nothing there.
How can you eliminate these insects without a spray can insecticide? The spray will get on carpets and walls. Is there another product? Thanks.
For the longest time pretty much anything one wanted to spray inside the home would leave a mess. Traditionally the sprays were oil based and would leave stains, residue and basically a mess where applied. These sprays then became water based but still they were messy. Fortunately in recent years, this has all changed.
Todays products are virtually odorless and when applied properly, should barely be detectable. That being said, I’m still reluctant to spray the inside of my home for general pest control unless I’ve got good reason. So how do I keep pests out?
For starters, I mostly spray outside my home. By treating the mulch, flower beds and foundation of my home I’m able to keep most all invading pests outside the active living spaces. For these areas I mostly use BIFEN but there are several actives that can do the job.
And when I do find a problem inside, the only spray I use is PHANTOM. It’s unique formulation allows it to go on dry and odorless so even on my hardwood floors there is no clue anything has been applied. I use it on my boat too where the high gloss deck and flooring will show the slightest dirt or smudge but amazingly, not the Phantom.
In summary, treat around the exterior of your home throughout the year to keep pests from entering. But when they do get inside, spot treat with Phantom and I’m sure you’ll be able to keep them under control without making a mess.
