We have been lucky not to have many problems with pests and vermin where we live, however, whenever the weather gets warm we get a visit from some unwelcome visitors. We usually begin to see the ants in our front yard traveling back and forth from their colony with food and, eventually, they always make their way inside the foyer where we find the occasional stragglers.
As a kid, I can remember my parents using Combat Baits and Gels to deal with roaches when we lived in apartment buildings. It is a brand that has been trusted by my family for years so I was very excited to have the opportunity to review new Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips.
They have the same killing power found in Combat Gels and are available in a new discreet design that contains an adhesive backing that makes it easier than ever to hide them out of sight and our of the reach of children and pets. They are extremely easy to apply and leave no sticky mess. This is especially important in our home because my seven-year old is very curious and has a habit of getting into everything.
You are probably wondering what makes Combat Bait Strips different from other insecticides. You see, unlike spray insecticides that only kill the bugs that are visible to you, these strips have the ability to attack the source of your pest problem which is the nest or colony. They contain food and water that roaches and ants seek combined with Fipronil which is a fast acting insecticide that starts killing within hours once the insect has come into contact with the bait.
How Combat Bait Strips Work:
My husband actually applied the Bait Strips in our Foyer and he loved how easy it was to apply them due to their adhesive backing. He was able to put them in discreet places so the kids and our dog would not be able to mess with them. We saw a significant decrease in the visible ants getting into the home immediately and stopped seeing ants altogether after about a week. We are very happy with the results!
