Most all of our products will “contact kill” when first applied.
A Contact Killer is a spray that kills target pests quickly
BUT ONCE THE SPRAY DRIES, IT LOOSES THIS POWER!!
What this means is that in just 1/2 a day after you spray, any newly emerging pests that cross over the treatment will be picking up some residual
BUT it will take 2-3 days for them to die!
The following “short” video explains this in summary form:
For this reason it means you’ll be seeing new ones come out faster than the residual can kill them MAKING IT APPEAR THE PROBLEM IS WORSE!!
BECAUSE WHERE YOU SEE THEM IS WHERE THEY’RE NESTING!
So if they’re around a window? It means they’re either in the window frame OR the exterior siding AND SURFACE SPRAYING WILL NOT GET THEM IN THEIR NESTS!!
Now if you have vinyl, aluminum or wood shake siding, any of these pests could easily be thriving behind it EVEN AFTER YOU SPRAY THE HOMES EXTERIOR WITH OUR MAXXTHOR!!
For sure Maxxthor will penetrate small cracks and crevices in brick mortar or even up under masonite. But siding that has a space like Vinyl, Stucco or Aluminum all have spaces that can keep huge populations of pests very well protected.
To end the invasions inside or to stop seeing them on the homes siding, you need to treat behind the siding.
For inside the home, say around baseboards? It would most likely be under the baseboard, in carpeting or around a point of entry like a window or door.
AGAIN, DO NOT FORGET: THEIR NESTS WILL BE WITHIN 1-2 FEET OF WHERE YOU SEE THEM SO FOCUS ON THESE LOCATIONS!!!
So what products do you use?
For any wall void, attic or behind exterior siding like Vinyl or Aluminum, DEMISE DUST will be best since it can last 6-12 months.
Use one of our CRUSADERS to apply the Demise.
