The baits that you buy in stores are not always effective as pesticides for eliminating infestations. If you bait insects, chances are you will not kill all of them. If you have rodents, you will kill a few, but more will keep coming if you do not have a pest management plan in place. You will find baits for rodents, cockroaches, ants and termites. The baits attract the intruder and they feed on the poison inside. For the most part, the intruder will eat the poison, leave the bait box and return to the nest or to another area of the home to die. If you have a large infestation, more than one bait box will be needed.
If you do not place the bait boxes correctly or know what effect they will have on your pets or your own health, you could have a potentially serious problem. A pest control company will use bait boxes to lure rodents inside where they are trapped. If you use the store bought bait box, the rodent can eat the poison and may go of to die in the walls of your home. An extremely powerful smell from dead rodents can drive you out of your own home.
