What is the difference between baits and sprays when it comes to treatment?

Sprays are formulated differently than baits, in that they are used more for repelling insects and offer more of a contact kill. Baits are formulated as an attractant and are meant to act as the food source for the insects (roaches or ants), therefore making the insects take the bait back to their nest or colony and help achieve eradication below the surface, where our technician cannot see or does not have direct access.  Spray applications will kill only those workers who are on the surface and come in contact with the spray or repellent, and with baits, all workers have the potential to be exposed to the baits, whether that is directly on the surface when they carry the bait back underground, or if they are one of the workers who are feed the bait underground.
