What is your best option for pest control – barrier or baiting?

Pests in your home can be a real nuisance. They can also cause damage, if you do not deal with the problem. The best way to limit the amount of damage caused is to have your home checked for pests on a regular basis. Generally, it's a good idea to have checks carried out at least once every twelve months. You can also keep an eye out for signs of pest activity, such as the smell of faeces and urine, and damage to wood or wiring. 
If you spot any signs of pest infestation, you should call experts such as Fox Pest straight away. They can help eradicate the problem, and you can limit the amount of damage caused. So, which type of pest control should you opt for? The experts should be able to advise you, but here is some information that should also help you make a decision. 
The pros and cons of barrier pest control 
Barrier pest control involves the injecting of chemicals into the soil around the exterior of your home. Pests come into contact with the chemicals and they take the effects with them, back to other pests. This is generally a quick way of killing off pests that are invading your home. 
The problem with barrier pest control is that it can be quite disruptive; drilling is usually required. You may also be worried about the use of chemicals, and the effect on the environment. If you have any concerns, you should speak to the pest control experts. 
The pros and cons of baiting 
As you might expect, baiting involves the laying of baits which pests then come into contact with. Baiting is generally more environmentally friendly than barrier pest control. It's also less disruptive. 
The main problem with this type of pest control is that it's a slow process; it can take six to eight months for pests to be eradicated. During this time, you need to have baits re-set, in order for the treatment to remain effective. This means that, although baiting may not be more expensive up front, it can end up costing you more than barrier pest control, in the long term.
Most pest control experts provide both types of pest control. They will visit your home to assess the situation. Once they have done this, they should be able to recommend the best type of pest control for your circumstances. Of course, the decision is up to you, but bear in mind that they know what they are talking about. If you have any concerns, or need answers to questions, just ask.
Hopefully, you can now see the difference between the different types of pest control. This should help you make a decision as to which type is the best choice for you. The most important thing is that you do not delay in having pest control carried out. The longer you wait, the harder the job becomes, and the more damage is likely to be caused.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
