1.Total-Release Foggers They are pesticide chemicals used to get rid of fleas, ticks and roaches. They release a gas spray that fills the air with pesticide containing insecticide. To be affective these need to be used in enclosed areas. People and animals must stay away. Toys, food, cutlery and crockery must not be exposed. The house should be aired and the tops of tables should be cleaned before using. Avoid contact with them because they can cause eye and skin burning or trouble breathing depending on the level of exposure.
2.Moth balls They are white, round and they look like marble. They have a strong and unusual smell. They repel insects that eat natural fibres (wood and paper) They are used in closets and bookcases. They contain pesticides such as naphthalene. Coming in contact with moth balls may cause irritation to the eye and skin. Wash your hands or skin with lots of water. If you breathe it, it may get you sick. This depends on the level of exposure.
