Product Overview

Advion Cockroach Gel Bait delivers unbeatable, professional results in roach infestation elimination. Powered by a unique, high-performing bait matrix, Advion Roach Gel targets even the toughest species of gel bait-averse roaches including German cockroaches, American cockroaches, and Brown-Banded roaches. Advion Roach Bait Gel is a high consumption bait. The active ingredient, Indoxacarb, has a brief delay in killing the roach, allowing it to return to its harborage site and spread the bait to other roaches. This helps to reduce the infestation levels.  Apply Advion Cockroach Bait as a crack and crevice treatment indoors and outdoors in commercial, residential, and industrial sites. 

We provide 1 Plunger PER ORDER to expel the bait from the tubes. You can purchase extra plungers or you can purchase a bait gun for use with this product. We recommend the Masterline professional bait gun.

How Advion Cockroach Gel Baits WorksAdvion Cockroach bait gel contains the active ingredient Indoxacarb.  After roaches consume the bait, this active ingredient allows for a brief delay in mortality, giving the cockroaches time to return to their harborage site to contaminate other cockroaches. This results in a significant reduction in infestation levels by eliminating large amounts of the roach population. Each roach that comes in contact with bait can contaminate up to 40 other roaches by way of contact, feces, or the other roaches feeding on its poisoned carcass. This domino effect knocks out roach populations at an incredible rate.

For more information on eliminating roach infestations, see our guide on how to get rid of roaches.

Target Pests

German, American, Australian, Smoky-Brown, Brown, Asian, and Brown-Banded species of cockroaches

ROACHES CONTROLLED: Cockroaches such as German, American, Australian, Smoky-Brown, Brown, Asian, Oriental, and Brown-Banded.

Target Uses

Use Advion Cockroach Gel Bait indoors and outdoors as a crack and crevice treatment to control even the toughest of infestations. Advion Cockroach Bait is excellent for German roaches as they are the most common indoor infesting roach. Advion Cockroach Bait may be used in conjunction with Insect Growth Regulators, such as Gentrol Point Source Stations, for even more complete control of all life stages of cockroaches.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Indoxacarb, 0.6%

Advion Cockroach Gel Bait Application Instructions

  • For heavy infestations of cockroaches, apply 3 to 5 spots of ADVION Cockroach Gel Bait per 10 linear feet.
  • For light to moderate infestations of cockroaches, apply 1-3 spots of ADVION cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet.
  • Each spot of ADVION gel bait should equal about 0.5 grams (approx. 1/4” diameter).
  • For all levels of cockroach infestations, when a bead of ADVION Cockroach Gel Bait is used, apply a small thin bead that is less than 1/8” wide and approximately 2 inches long.

Each 30 g tube yields approximately 60 bait placements. Each box of 4 x 30 g tubes yields approximately 240 placements.

Advion Cockroach Gel Bait is for use in the following areas:

Residential, Institutional, Commercial, and Industrial Areas; Use sites include single and multi-family residential buildings, schools, commercial and industrial facilities (including warehouses, apartments, supermarkets, restaurants, motels, hotels, hospitals, food handling/storage establishments), and transportation equipment such as aircraft, trains, ships, boats, buses; residential homes, industrial facilities, offices, warehouses, commercial kitchens, hospitals, schools, nursing homes, hotels, buses, trains, aircraft, retail and commercial establishments, and other areas infested with cockroaches

Where to apply Advion Cockroach Bait INDOORS:

  • 3 to 5 spots of gel bait per 10 linear feet for heavy infestations.
  • 1 to 3 spots of gel bait per 10 linear feet for light to moderate infestations.

ADVION Cockroach Gel should be applied to areas frequented by cockroaches such as between different elements of construction, between equipment and floors, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, and behind and under appliances, cabinets, sinks, closets, and any other equipment that cockroaches are typically known to hide.

See our Indoor Roach Control Guide for more examples of indoor placement.

Where to apply Advion Cockroach Gel Bait OUTDOORS:

  • A thorough inspection around a structure may reveal areas where cockroaches are gaining access. Attempts should be made to remove the access.
  • ADVION Cockroach Gel Bait may also be applied as a spot or thin bead (see above) to pest entry sites such as along windows, doors, between construction elements, sewer areas, adjacent trees which harbor cockroaches, along walls, garbage holding areas, or suitable placement site acting as a cockroach harborage. Bait placements should be made to reduce the potential of subsequent human contact.
  • Bait placements should be inspected periodically and fresh bait applied as needed.
  • Bait should be placed in cracks and crevices to reduce exposure to rain, dust, and sunlight.

Extra Tips for Using Advion Cockroach Gel Bait

  • Avoid applying ADVION Cockroach Gel to surfaces recently treated with residual sprays.
  • Surfaces treated with ADVION Cockroach Gel should not be treated with residual sprays. Keep sprays low and baits high.
  • Repeat applications may be made upon inspection during follow-up inspections of the treated areas.
  • Do not apply to surfaces that food contacts.
  • Do not allow open foods to contact gel material.

* Do not apply bait to surfaces where the temperature may exceed 120-130 degrees F because this may cause the bait to liquefy and the gel to lose effectiveness.

* If gel comes into contact with exposed surfaces, remove the bait and wash the area with soap and water.

* Store out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight for up to one year.

* Avoid placing bait on porous surfaces, e.g. concrete or cardboard, or where it may be exposed to air currents. These conditions may cause the bait to dry out and be less attractive.

* If response slows down, try rotating with a different brand of cockroach bait.

* Always practice good sanitation by eliminating other food and water sources to make the bait more attractive.

    Worked like a miracle

    By Gail on 06/12/2007

    My husband and I could hardly believe it. The Advion Cockroach Gel Bait worked like a miracle. My husband used it first on Saturday morning, 6/9/07. The next day most of the gel had been eaten off the back of our dog feeder (against the wall, so the dogs couldn't get it). That had been the roach's favorite hunting ground. I applied some more, and by that night they were, for the most part, gone. Today is Tuesday and they're GONE! I actually bought way too much, so I am going to help out two of my friends, who each have problems that they haven't been able to fix. I know that with one tube each, their problems will be over. It really is a miraculous product. Thank you so much for having such a wonderful product.

    Another WOW!

    By David on 02/14/2010

    I've never felt compelled to write a review like this, but here goes... After moving into my dream house I discovered I had a huge roach problem. Every morning when I snapped on the lights in the kitchen you see them scurrying everywhere. Even the exterminator coming several times brought no salvation. After reading the reviews here, I bought some Advion and went to work putting it out as recommended. The next morning when I went into the kitchen I was greeted by DOZENS of dead or dying roaches. I have not seen a live one in days. If you have a roach problem, look no further!

    Attractive Gel (the key is dots)

    By Ron on 06/17/2009

    Verified Purchase

    I have bait resistant roaches in my area. I put this down with about 8 small dots on a 1"x2 index card in several areas of the home (I don't like gel on cabinets). About 2 hours later, the bait behind the fridge was gone, in cabinets around the home, gone, under the table gone. Advion Roach Bait Gel is the best attractive bait I have seen, it draws the bugs out and feeds them their last meal!! Buy the bait gun for easy control of putting down the dots.

    German Cockroaches

    By William on 05/26/2010

    This stuff is AMAZING!!!! I tried several different brands of store brought bug spray. Several different types of roach baits. I was getting up in the middle of the night to spray the roach infestation in my kitchen. Nothing even put a dent in the roach population. After ONE (yup one) application of Advion.....NO ROACHES!! If you have a German cockroach problem, BUY THIS STUFF!!! It really really works!!

    By Joe on 02/09/2013

    Verified Purchase

    I was at the end of my rope. I had a case of cockroaches in my old house that changed the way I looked at life. They would crawl over you when you slept at night, they completely take over the kitchen and bathroom at night, come out at the dinner table when we ate, making it impossible to invite people to your home for the embarrassment you would feel. I tried store bought insecticides until the home was unlivable because of fumes, but still no change in the amount of roaches. I was thinking of selling the house and moving. In desperation I tried ADVION GEL, and to my surprise, almost overnight, they (the roaches) were gone!!! It was miraculous, the way it wiped out a problem that I honestly thought was too severe to ever change. I cannot put into words the gratitude I feel for the people who made this stuff.

What if my dog eats a cockroach that has ingested the Advion Roach Bait Gel?

There is no need to worry about any type of issues from your dog eating roaches that have been in contact with Advion Roach Bait Gel. There is only enough insecticide in these products to kill a roach, not enough to have any effect on a mammal.

How often do you put Advion Roach Bait Gel out. For instance, every 30 days or every 90 days?
You should place Advion Roach Bait Gel out as often as needed.  You should only apply roach gel out if you have a problem.  If you do not have a problem, you should not place roach gel out as it is a food that will attract roaches, you do not want to attract a problem if you don't have one.  If you do have a current roach issue, you should apply as often as you need to.  In bad infestations, you may need to apply weekly if the roaches are eating it that fast.

Is the Advion Roach Bait Gel still working when it dries up?

I noticed that the gel dries up after 2-3 days, and gets hard. Is it still going to work?

The gel will work even after it hardens though it does work best when it is soft. The gel will dry out quickly if you place it on a porous surface or if you place it in an area where it is exposed to air currents (heating or cooling vents). You can help avoid these situations by placing the Advion Roach Bait Gel in disposable bait plate stations.  Bait Plate Stations are low-profile, economic and easy-to-use plastic stations that hold gel, liquid and granular baits for ants, roaches and other crawling insects.

Does Advion Roach Bait Gel have an expiration date?

The manufacturer does not label Advion Roach Bait Gel with an expiration date but is good for up to 5 years. We recommend that you use the bait within one year from the date of purchase to ensure freshness. Be sure to store the bait in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.

How do you know when a bait is not working ?

I purchased/applied Advion Roach Bait Gel bait about a week ago, and I'm not seeing any roaches that are attracted to it. I have smokey Brown Nymphs and i tried hand feeding one and it just wanted nothing to do with it. one thing I think I've done wrong is contaminated my baits with Talstar pro. so I've placed the baits where i have not sprayed. Ive just ordered the Maxforce FC Magnum in hopes that they will like that. Nymphs are supposed to eat this/ be attracted to baits when younger right ? Ive also purchased a birth inhibitor which i plan on mixing with my Talstar but I'm afraid of contaminating my baits again. any help would be appreciated. i just cant seem to get rid of these nymphs and i know the big boy stage is on its way.

Roaches will always ignore baits that have been contaminated with insecticides, perfumes or even cigarette smoke so it is important to keep the bait away from these contaminants. Roach bait gel should be placed in small dabs directly into cracks and crevices in cabinets, drawers, around sinks, counter tops, in food cabinets and any other area where you are seeing activity. Talstar + Gentrol on the other hand should only be sprayed around door frames, window frames and directly into cracks and crevices around baseboards and in cracks and crevices around utilities (cables, pipes, wires) that enter through the wall. Never apply the products in the same exact area. It is also important to make sure the kitchen and surrounding areas are spotless each day while you are trying to eliminate the roaches. Leave no crumbs or dishes in the sink at night, take out trash every night, and make sure all counter tops are wiped down thoroughly. One week is not enough time to determine if a roach bait gel is working. You need to give a bait severeal weeks to see if you notice a difference in a roach population. Heavy infestations can take several months to get rid of no matter what products you use.
