Toxic residual sprays are applied to surfaces over which insects, such as cockroaches, may run. Treated surfaces remain toxic by contact for prolonged periods, thereby killing all pests that try to move across the area. Depending on the specific product, some types of spray for pests can stay toxic for up to three months! This treatment is most often used to manage infestations of mosquitoes carrying malaria.
Residual sprays only work if it is certain that the pests feed and rest indoors. This way, they will be brought in contact with the toxins regularly, which will reduce their lifespan dramatically. These toxic sprays’ efficacy may be lessened when the surface is washed and cleaned, as the pesticide will then be eliminated. UV rays can also have a negative effect on chemicals such as pyrethrin and lead to it becoming less effective.
