Keep Summer Pest-Free with New Combat Killing Bait Strips

Summertime is just around the corner, and unfortunately, so is bug season. During the hot and humid summer months, roach and ant populations multiply and start invading many homes around the United States.

Good news - if roaches and ants tend to invade your summer pool parties, you’re not alone. Fifty-two percent of Americans have experienced ant or roach problems; and 20 percent of those have not invited people over due to the embarrassment.

To keep insects from spoiling your summer plans and social life, Combat® Bugs has a released new secret weapon towards extermination: Killing Bait Strips. With the same killing power found in Combat® Gels, the thin bait strips help get rid of roaches and ants so you can enjoy your summer. Combat® Killing Bait Strips eliminate pests quietly as roaches and ants bring the bait back to the nest, killing at the source to eliminate the infestation. The thin and discreet strips have an adhesive backing that offers versatility and can be placed out of reach of kids and pets – also leaving them hidden from summer party guests.

To minimize rid your embarrassment and keep your summer barbeques pest-free, follow these quick tips:

  • Store food in airtight containers
  • Sweep and vacuum regularly
  • Keep vegetation from touching the outside of your home
  • Clean all surfaces to remove any food residue
  • Use Combat Killing Bait Strips to prevent an infestation
