What products do you recommend to prevent or take care of the termites, roaches and other problems?

I am a new home owner in Atlanta, GA. What products do you recommend to prevent or take care of the termites, ants, roaches and other problems common to this area?


For termites, we recommend that you use a preventative termite barrier. Dominion 2L can be applied per label instructions in a trench around your home to prevent a termite infestation. Dominion 2L lasts for up to 7 years in the ground. You can prevent ants and roaches from entering your home by applying a long lasting residual product such as Talstar P. Talstar P kills over 75 different insects and is safe to use indoors and outdoors, is gentle on plants, is odorless, dries clear, leaves no stains, is non-irritating to the skin, and won't break down easily with rainfall. We also suggest you use Integrated Pest Management or IPM. IPM is a step by step approach that helps you identify the pest and determine why that pest is there, and then determine how to exclude the pest in the future. Please read the IPM article to learn how to successfully stop pests before they become a problem.
