1 Baiting Cockroaches Chapter 7 Section II – General Pest Control Basics of the Pest Bear & Affiliates Service Personnel Development Program , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved

2 This presentation is a training guide for the use of Baits in an initial cleanout of a structure. Once the structure has been completely treated, monthly treatments should not be necessary but regular inspections are recommended. If signs of infestation reappear during the inspections, treat only the affected areas. In most instances, retreatment of the entire structure should not be necessary until the annual renewal date. Service Business Solutions recommends the use of this presentation as a training program for service technicians, sales personnel, and office personnel. It is also recommended for use as a sales tool, when making a presentation to a potential client.

4 Advantages of Baiting 1. Long residual action as a control agent 2. Exact placement of the control agent in the target environment 3. Little or no mess when making applications 4. Simplicity of the application process 5. Little specialized equipment required 6. Increasing number of products to select from 7. Economical over the period of control Baiting offers many benefits to both the PCO and the Client. Only with the development of good commercially available baits has the art of baiting emerged as a primary Integrated Pest Management (IPM) tool. Some advantages of baiting are: , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved

5 The residual action of a bait is one of the most important characteristics of baiting. Placement of small amounts of bait in a large number of areas and having the bait remain accessible and attractive to the target pest gives a baiting program a much greater chance of success. Placement of bait requires the PCO to inspect the facility rather than broadcast spraying. Inspection is the cornerstone of any IPM program, so baiting will enhance the effectiveness of an IPM approach to pest control. Placement of bait reduces the mess created during the performance of the service and leaves a much better impression on the client while being much more thorough with the application , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc.

6 Applying bait is easy, if : you make a thorough inspection, apply them in a uniform manner, and you make a thorough treatment. Equipment used for baiting may be as simple as a spatula or, most likely, will include a bait application gun. It is sometimes helpful to have a step ladder or stool for applying bait in high, hard to reach, places. A good flashlight is critical for the success of a baiting program. A small, but durable, light is better than a big bulky light and using the light both prior to and during application is important.

7 The Bait Gun from Specialty Products is a plunger type gun, with multiple dose selection. It can be used with conventional bait tubes and tips, and has options, such as a flashlight holder. Conventional Bait Guns , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved

9 With the increased popularity of baiting as a major IPM control procedure more products are becoming available. It is very important that baits are used in accordance with their label. They are pesticides and must be handled accordingly. It is a violation of FIFRA to use a product in a manner inconsistent with the Label. When properly applied, baiting can be more economical than conventional pesticide applications because: smaller amounts are applied products have a longer residual products are less likely to be removed or altered , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc.

10 Disadvantages of Baiting 1. Baiting takes more time than spraying, when properly done 2. Cost of initial baiting is higher in time and materials 3. Control through baiting may take longer to achieve 4. There is no quick kill in a baiting program 5. Baiting requires a commitment from Management 6. Baiting requires training or retraining Technicians 7. Baiting requires education of Clients Nothing is perfect, and there are some disadvantages to baiting. However, the advantages far out weigh the disadvantages. Some of the disadvantages which PCOs and their Clients need to be aware of are: , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved

12 The initial baiting service may take longer than a conventional treatment, but the overall time devoted to actual treatment during a contractual year will probably be about the same. The reason for this is the extra time spent in making a thorough inspection and actually applying the bait. Baits generally will cost more for the initial service than a conventional treatment, but the annual cost will probably be less. Baiting does not give the quick kill normally encountered with spraying. This can be a disadvantage if the client is expecting a large kill, immediately. The long term effectiveness far outweighs this disadvantage , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved

13 The length of time necessary to gain control with baits is going to be directly related to the thoroughness of the application, product selection, and total population. consider vacuuming as many of the pests as possible prior to baiting to increase the speed of control. To be successful, the PCO must be committed to IPM and baiting as a control tool. A total commitment to baiting must be made and adhered to if the concept is to become the basis of a general control program. It is very important for the Client to be educated about baits and baiting. A knowledgeable Client will support an IPM program, and lack of education will not add to the success of a baiting program , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved

14 Successful Baiting 1.Make a thorough inspection - EVERY TIME A.check cracks & crevices, above & below, and inside & behind 2.Use a flashlight when inspecting and treating 3.Remove evidence of infestation 4.Establish a regular schedule for inspection 5.Replace eaten or old baits 6.Do Not use conventional pesticides in areas where you are baiting 7.Note unsanitary conditions 8.Require correction of mechanical deficiencies 9.Notify the Client of current conditions and findings Successful baiting requires adaptation to a true IPM approach. An initial or continuous baiting program should include the following steps: , Central Fla Duplicating, Inc. All rights reserved
