There are really no permanent solutions to getting rid of common pesky household pests because if there are, companies providing pest control services would be out of business and supermarkets would not have to sell us insecticides any more.

Now, we don’t fancy cockroaches and we absolutely hate them, especially the flying ones. Other pesky insects like ants and flies can also be quite irritating at times but they are not as bad as cockroaches. We are either not a fan of insects or we just have problems getting along with them. In fact, they are also the reason why we would viciously spray tons of insecticide in our bedroom, kitchen, and even in the bathroom!

One fact of life remains, spraying insecticide is only a temporary solution; and to be honest, the smell of the insecticide is a major turn-off and can cause breathing problems or insecticide poisoning.
What if we tell you that we have just discovered a fuss-free solution to keep those pesky pests away without having to suffer from the harmful toxins of off-the-shelves insecticides?
Would you believe us?
Recently, we were approached by a local Singapore company, Ramroy Private Limited, to review a particular brand of natural insecticide and we found it quite intriguing.
It is intriguing because the insecticide, the KONK® I Flying Insect Killer is au naturel.
KONK® I Flying Insect Killer is made in the USA and its main ingredient, Pyrethrin, is a natural extract from the chrysanthemum flower. It acts as a natural deterrent and when used, creates an effective and protective barrier against flying and crawling insects such as mosquitoes, house flies, fruit flies, and ants. It even repels cockroaches!
We were given the KONK® I Flying Insect Killer [an insecticide] and an AirGuard Dispenser that will automatically dispense the insecticide at regular intervals, 24 hours a day, and it can protect up to 170 cubic metres of space.
To test the effectiveness of the AirGuard Dispenser with the KONK® I Flying Insect Killer installed in it, we have placed the AirGuard Dispenser on top of a shelf facing our bed.
Basis for Experiment:
Mosquitoes frequent our bedroom at night and they cause a lot of mosquito bites on our hands and legs. By placing the AirGuard Dispenser at a height level of 1.8-1.9 metres, we are hoping that the mosquitoes will be totally eliminated from our bedroom once and for all for the next 30 days.
While the experiment is underway, we will be putting up our findings sometime next month and if you can’t wait for our findings [probably because you are in a dire situation to get rid of pesky pests], we suggest that you get the Automated KONK® I Flying Insect Starter Kit at SGD$159 from Our Lifestyle Shop.
If you need more information about KONK® and its related products, we highly recommend that you “like” Our Lifestyle Shop Facebook Page and who knows, you might just be 1 of the 10 lucky winners whom will stand to win a 30-Day protect programme against dengue. In our upcoming blog entries on the same topic, we will be sharing with you about the KONK® 1 Handheld Flying Insect Killer and also our reviews about the insecticide products that we have tried so do keep a lookout for that!
You can now say, “No!” to pesky pests with confidence and convenience!
