How to stop crawling insects from crawling in on you this summer. Not all the bugs that bug you in the summertime are airborne. Roaches don't fly. Nor do ants, spiders, waterbugs, fieas, crickets, earwigs or silverfish. And trying to stop them with a spray insecticide that's meant for killing flying insects is tough. Because those bug killers don't have the staying power that CrawI-Tox has. The big difference in CrawI-Tox is an ingredient called Diazinon. It keeps working effectively week after week. Spray base- boards, drain pipes and steps and you'll stop most ground attacks before they even get started. Unless you have a special ant problem, of course.. If you do, the best defence is to attack with Tat Ant Traps. Just place Tat Ant Traps wherever you see ants inctoors or out. Ants wi 11 take bait from the traps back to the colony and in 3 to 5 days, the entire colony will be destroyed. CrawI-Tox and Tat Ant Traps. Between them they can stop anything that crawls.
