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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
