Todd from Mclean, Va writes

Is it more effective to use a repellent or non-repellent insecticide around the perimeter of a home?

Also, does it matter on the season?


Both non-repellents and repellent insecticides will eventually eradicate the pests that the products are labeled for. Non-repellents allow more time for the insects to be able to take the product back to their colony and transfer the product among each other. "Repellent" insecticides, such as Talstar P, are not detected until the insect you're treating comes in contact with the product - it will give off a "tingling" sansation or so to the insect but by then it will be too late for the insect. Eventually both types of products will work as long as the right amount of product is being used. Talstar P is a great choice to someone beginning to do their own pest control. Please see our Pest Library for more detailed information about specific pests.
