Hello World! Welcome Friends! Today, we have a guest post from Quintin Bentley Crevling. Welcome, Quintin! Take it away!
There is nothing worse than having an ant hill pop up in the middle of your beautiful lawn. To avoid this eyesore you should treat your lawn with an insecticide designed to kill your bugs and not your grass. When you are using pesticides in and around, your home you should know some basic functions of the product you are using to ensure that you do not harm your family, pets, or garden. Insecticide comes in two forms – granules and liquid. Each has a specific purpose and instructions to follow for safe use. To understand the differences between these two disbursement methods you need to know how they are similar, the application process for each method, and the intended use for each method. If you are considering having a professional come to your home, check on Excel Pest Services for information regarding a free inspection.
Both granular and liquid bug sprays are essentially the same poison, just with a different method of application to the affected area. These two forms of insecticide absorb into the insect and attack their nervous system, causing them to lose bodily functions until they die. Both are seen as a last resort extermination treatment because they can be harmful around small children and pets. These products can be easily purchase at a local hardware store and they tend to have positive feedback from customers, verifying that the poison eradicated the problem. If you have not seen a noticeable differences within a few days, you should call a professional exterminator inspect your property.
Granular bug killers come as thousands of small pellets that will be spread across the affected area of your yard. The most effective method of dispersing the pellets is with the assistance of a seed spreader. If there is a concentrated area where you believe there is a bug nest, then you should add additional granules around that area. The application of the spray will take a little longer because you have to completely spray areas to ensure that the insects directly come into contact with the poison. You should be sure to purchase a concentrated solution that you mix with water. The solution will begin to breakdown as soon as water is introduced which means that premixed solutions lose up to 50% of quality before it is ever used.
The largest difference between these two application methods is that they have very different intended uses. The granular method is designed to only work outside of the home. These granules are eaten by insects and spread throughout the colony. This method does not spread poison across an entire surface. The bugs will have to physically eat the granules to be poisoned. Bug sprays on the other hand are designed to be used inside and outside of the home. These sprays can completely cover a surface and work as both an insecticide and a repellent.
If you are going to try and eradicate your insect problem on your own, you must consider your options and decide which method is appropriate for your specific needs.
Thank you, Quintin for such great information! Have a lovely day/night depending on where you are in the world! Go with God and remember to be kind to one another!
