Review of Terro Termite Killer

As we have mentioned above, Terro termite killer offers you a wide range of various sprays, ointments, traps, crayons, powders, concentrates and jells. You should know the scale of the termites’ destruction and how soon you want to get rid of “unexpected guests”.

Let’s dusscuss different kind of Terro Termite Killer:

  • You can find expeditious tools such as aerosols and sprays. Tools of this group allow you to destroy termites and other pests in the apartment literally within a few hours. If you perform it right, you can quickly kill the entire population of pests, even in highly contaminated indoor.
  • Tools of killing termites and other pests slowly. As we can say slowly but surely. They are gels, insecticidal pencils, powders and various kinds of traps. If you use only these products, the killing of termites can take several weeks. But with the right approach it may have a complete victory over pests.

There is no denying that we have to mention a few words about the relevant nuances of using all kinds of Terro Termite Killer. Preparations in the form of aerosols or terro termite sprays you can easy to spray over a large area.

The smallest particles of the poison are able to penetrate even in hard to reach places where termites can hide (various slits, holes, cracks). Most cross functional aerosol products which can be bought in cans, kill insects quickly, but not have a long residual effect. (Usually they are based on pyrethroids).

In contrast, many of modern microencapsulated products have long lasting effect, persisting on treated surfaces for several weeks.

And although manufacturers of the tools from termites, bedbugs, fleas and other insects claim about the relative safety of drugs for humans, however, as you know, inhalation of insecticide spray is dangerous for humans’ health in any case.

So now you can see that sprays and aerosols have both advantages and disadvantages.

Slowly operating tools for the killing of termites are good as a Supplement to sprays and aerosols.

Insecticidal gels, powders, pencils and traps are highly recommended to be combined with aerosols or sprays, even if you think that the entire population of termites in the apartment or in the house completely killed (you can find some single surviving specimen). But nevertheless they are not able to get rid of termites and other pests in big groups and in short period of time.
