Oh my gosh. I saw a roach on my patio. Now normally, I wouldn’t share this because the thought of bugs creeps me out in the worst way, but just in case it’s happened to you I thought you should know what I ended up doing. Now, first of all, I do have a monthly exterminator service that comes rain or shine to spray inside my home. However, it’s left up to me to worry about my outdoor area. I also have a rental property that I have to worry about. I’m aware that not everyone has an exterminator and if you own several rental homes, or even just one as I do, it could be costly to keep them sprayed. It’s never a good month with your profit is eaten up with costly maintenance fees of any sort.
In my panic on what I could do myself to treat my patios, I came upon a super helpful site that listed the best roach killer products for 2019. I also had my rental in mind because I think the hurricane has a lot to do with unwanted bugs in our area. Reason being, I’ve talked to others who have been seeing them as well. Anyway, I picked the Hot Shot Bait since it had a high rating and was described as small and discreet, which I liked since I don’t want an eyesore in my property. Oh, snap, just like that. I used it and then reused it and that was the end of my ordeal. I haven’t seen any since but I have plenty of treatment still from my purchase to treat the outdoors and my rental property again and again if need be.
I talked to our local hardware store before I found this site and they said many people have complained of seeing roaches and *shivers* rats since the hurricane. We were affected by it, you see. I’ve included the link to the site in this post and I hope you find it as helpful as I did. They’ve broken down each product and what they’d rate them as. There are so many options to choose from. I selected a concentrate simply because I thought that would work best for me. I hope this solves your roach problem as it has mine. I can’t stand the thought of creepy crawlers near my dwellings.
