Looking to buy Insecticides?
Insects can create all sorts of problems for us in our daily lives, from attacking picnics and invading homes to munching through a prize cabbage patch. The strength of these invertebrates is their huge numbers. There’s no way you can whittle their legions down by squashing individual bugs. Instead you should look to OnBuy’s collection of fabulous Insecticides instead! We’ve got a terrific line-up of pellets, sprays, powders and droplets that are effective counters to all manner of common pests.
By far the most effective insecticides are synthetic - potent bio-weapons tailor made to kill insectile invaders quickly and efficiently. Many synthetic insecticides disrupt the neuro-chemical signals that control the insect’s muscles, effectively paralysing them. These insecticides are perfect for dealing with stinging and biting insects like wasps and hornets, as the animal won’t have a chance to exact its revenge.
One of the challenges of dealing with a full-bore insect infestation is their high reproductive rate and tiny, hard to spot eggs. Although they may be small, insect eggs are tough, and some can withstand traditional chemical insecticides. Just as you thought you’ve gotten rid of every six-legged critter a new generation bursts into life. Luckily, some of the items on display on our virtual shelves are ovicides and larvicides, which kill off eggs and larvae respectively. These products give you a wake to permanently break the life-cycle of the pests inhabiting your home.
As well as chemical insecticides, you can also find insecticides derived from natural ingredients too. These powders and sprays are often effective against a narrower band of insects than their synthetic cousins. At first this may seem like a disadvantage, but it can be a useful way of making sure innocent insects aren’t caught in the cross-fire. If you have an ant incursion, you can use one of these specialised natural insecticides to take care of them without harming innocuous pollinators.
You can even fight fire with fire, or rather bug with bug! Several of the products you see on our virtual shelves are eggs for predatory mites and other creatures. These bugs feed upon some of the most common plant-destroying pests in your garden. Ideal for outdoor use, this entirely natural insecticide is excellent for treating gardens and other outdoor plants safely.
Insecticides are designed to be deadly, providing a permanent end to insect infestation. If you’re worried about your karma they may not be the right choice for you. If you’d rather consider a non-lethal option, particularly for biting and stinging insects, then what you’re after are insect repellants. These chemicals discourage insects and other arthropods from landing on your clothes and skin. Head over to our insect repellant category to browse our current selection of pacifist solutions.
