OH MY! Lots of ‘waterbugs’/roaches on my patio or coming in! What’s happening? Is your material not working? You need to come out RIGHT NOW and retreat!
WHOA, not so fast! It became unseasonably hot really early this year and everything is looking for a more comfortable place – me included! The material is still working! The material we’re currently using is not photo sensitive. The residual is easily 65 to 70 days! Remember, the materials today, generally, are not repellant. When the insects walk through it they will die! It’s not a matter of if but, when. Usually in 20 minutes to an hour you will see them turning upside down. 1st thing you will probably notice in the process of dying.
Issue is that they are coming out from storm drains, under rocks (large decorative landscape type) from the neighbors who are DIY and trying to find a more comfortable place to live. They will gravitate toward the house. Think of it this way….a dog can hear or smell things way beyond our ability. These insects can sense that a building is a more comfortable enviorment than where they are from as far as the middle of the street. It’s about harborage (a place to live and breed). They will travel to the more comfortable place and seek a crack or crevice to enter through. That’s why I always say, if you can see light somewhere around a door, they can and will come through……THEY’RE GONNA DIE! They just crossed our material! By the way, a doggie door to them is like no door at all. It’s just a convenient hole in the wall for them to go through.
