Welcome to Do-It-Yourself Pest Control


What are Insecticide Aerosols?

Insecticide Aerosols are sprays that contain active pesticides and other inert ingredients that kill insects. Aerosols produce less waste than other insecticides because they are metered, and each spray is designed to deliver a specified amount of poison. There are three types of aerosols that contain pesticides: contact, residual, and IGR (insect growth regulator) sprays. Some products are a combination of the three types.

Contact Insecticide Aerosols

Contact sprays are most effective when sprayed directly onto the target insect for a quick kill. Many contact sprays contain pyrethroid or other active ingredients composed of synthetic toxins that target the insect's central nervous system. Many contact sprays do not eliminate eggs, and the insect cycle can continue. Some insects, such as bedbugs, can become resistant to the active ingredients in contact sprays, and a different treatment is required for the remaining resistant insects.

Residual Insecticide Aerosols

Residual insecticide aerosols remain active for an extended period of time after the application. Residual aerosols are applied to surfaces instead of directly on the insects to kill the bugs as they come into contact with the treated area.

Insect Growth Regulator Aerosols

Insect Growth Regulator sprays disrupt the insect lifecycle by rendering the insects sterile.

Where are Residual Aerosols used?

Aerosols are easier to use than other insecticides and they are fairly clean. Residual Aerosols are used for hard to reach places such as cracks and crevices, baseboards and around plumbing. Aerosols are commonly used to control insects such as ants, bedbugs, bees, cockroaches, houseflies, silverfish, spiders, wasps and termites both indoors and outdoors.
