    Q
    I have roaches running around inside my kitchen drawers where I store my silverware. Can I spray?
    Ccan I spray in these drawers and let the product dry and then be safe putting my utensils back, I feel like this is where the roaches have a safe haven because I am still seeing many many of them and they are running around inside these drawers. We have already treated 3 times and still seeing many roaches, babies and large....Thanks
    A
    We would not recommend spraying any insecticide in the drawers. You can use a high quality roach bait gel such as the Advion Roach Bait Gel to treat areas where spraying would not be appropriate (counter tops, cabinets, drawers, around dishwasher, a/c vent). The roaches will consume the bait and then go back to their nesting area and spread the bait which will help eliminate the roaches more quickly than spraying insecticides and IGRs alone. Getting rid of roaches is not a process that only takes only a few hours. Moderate roach infestations can take a few weeks to get rid of and severe infestations can take several months even when using all of the products needed (insecticide, IGR, roach bait) and sanitation is up to par.

    Q
    Advion Roach Bait Gel how long before it starts working?
    A

    Advion Roach Bait Gel will take at least a couple weeks to eradicate roaches. The transfer of the bait to the rest of the roaches is what takes time.

    Is advion the best for Waterbugs? The larger 1 1/2 inch type of roach bugs? Not the german cockroaches but waterbugs? What is the best to kill them?
    A
    American Cockroaches (aka waterbugs) can be controlled with Advion Roach Bait Gel. We also recommend that you use an insecticide and an insect growth regulator for the fastest control. You can purchase all of these needed items together in our Roach Control Kit #2.

    Q
    What if your dog eats about half a tube of Advion Roach Bait Gel?
    My dog was in her cage when we left and she ate half a tube.
    A

    According to the the Advion Roach Bait Gel MSDS:

    "Potential Health Effects:
    Based on animal testing, no biologically significant effects are expected from skin or eye contact or by ingestion."

    You should still read and follow the product label which recommends that you use the roach bait gel in places that will be inaccessible to your pet. Of course, if you see any unusual behavior or signs of sickness, you should consult a veterinarian.

  • Asked by Angela from Los Angeles

    Q
    Is Advion Roach Bait Gel safe for inside cabinets, cupboards?
    Do I need to empty out the cabinets with dishes and utensils? What if roaches crawl on them after ingesting the bait? Also, I've only seen roaches in the kitchen but the infestation has been going on for a few months now. Should I bait other parts of the house even though I've only seen them in the kitchen?
    A

    Yes, Advion Roach Bait Gel is safe for use inside of cabinets, drawers, etc. You do not need to empty out your cabinets. You will be placing the bait in pea sized points in the corners of the cabinets and drawers so this product will not come in contact the bait unless it is dropped on it. If you are concerned around the roaches walking over utensils, we would recommend washing them before use. We would recommend baiting where you have seen activity, such as areas with water sources. Please check out our Roach Guide for information on how to treat and prevent roaches in the future.

    Q
    Can Advion Roach Bait Gel attract Bedbugs as well as more Roaches?
    3 days after using Advion Roach Bait Gel we spotted a few bed bugs. I live in a building and I'm wondering could I have attracted them from my neighbors? (The roaches came from them when they moved old furniture out if their apt and left it in the hallway)
    A

    Advion Roach Bait Gel does not utilize the right food attractants to attract Bed Bugs. It is very unlikely the Bed Bugs came over for the roach bait. It may have just been timing. Please see our Bed Bug Guide.  The Advion Roach Bait Gel will attract roaches to it, but once consumed the roach poplulation will die off. Please also see our Roach Guide.

    Q
    Should a whole tube of Advion be applied during every application?
    I just bought a tube and I applied very tiny dots of it around my kitchen and put a couple in my bathroom. Should I be using the whole tube when apply or can I cap it and save it for weekly applications of fresh bait? Thanks.
    A

    Advion Roach Bait Gel works best if applied in small green pea size dabs. Please visit the Advion Roach bait page for the application video. You can cap and it will last up to a year.

    Q
    Can I still cook and eat while baits such as Advion Roach Bait Gel are set?
    If I place bait in strategic areas, is it still safe for me to cook food and eat in those areas or keep near plates, dried foods, etc?
    A

    When used as directed it is safe to use Advion Roach Bait Gel in areas that you would cook and eat as it should not contact food prep surfaces or dishes/utensils. We have a great video here that shows where to apply the bait. You can see the video by clicking on the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kSzVucMtA0

    Q
    Once applied, how long will Advion Roach Bait Gel last? Does it stop working when dry?
    A

    Advion Roach Bait Gel will continue to attract roaches when its dry. It should be reapplied once every two weeks.

    Q
    Should I rotate to a new product such as Maxforce from the Advion Roach Bait Gel?
    I've been using this product for 3 months and definitely noticed a very small population left. However they only eat bait I put near my sink (I assume it's because they look for dirty dishes but I wash them every night and keep the sink spotless so they eat the bait). I continued to put bait near my sink and it's completely eaten every night. I think the population might be growing because I'm suddenly seeing a few more than normal. Should I keep using this bait or be moving on to something else?
    A

    Yes, we do recommend rotating baits every few months to avoid bait aversion and bait resistance. We make bait rotation easy for you as we put a different bait in each of our roach control kits. If you are currently using the Advion Roach Bait Gel we do advise using Maxforce FC Magnum that is included in the roach control kit roation A

    Q
    Should I treat every room with Advion Roach Bait Gel for potential infestation?
    We had a pretty bad infestation of smokey brown roaches last year. I began to see the babies in almost every room beginning in April. By summer I was seeing all ages of roaches during the day and night. With an exterminator and cooler temperatures the activity slowed down to an adult being seen maybe once every couple of weeks. The weather has warmed for about a week and we have seen 3 adults in about 4 days. They seem to be localized to one bathroom at this time. I treated with Advion in the bathroom and the adjoining bedroom. Should I continue to put Advion throughout the rest of the house to prevent another full on infestation? Should I only do the other bathrooms?
    A

    It is recommended to apply roach baits such as Advion only in areas where you are currently seeing activity in order to avoid spreading an infestation.

    Q
    Do cockroaches become resistant to Advion Roach Bait Gel over time?
    About a year ago I purchased this gel and it worked beautifully to get rid of the roaches I saw in my kitchen. After applying it for several weeks, I went all winter without seeing any roaches. The spring after that, I saw more roaches and applied Advion to get rid of them. However, it doesn't seem to have done anything. There are no dead roaches lying around like last year. I'm thinking the new generation of cockroaches is not affected by this gel because they grew resistant to it. What should I do if this is the case? Is there another product I can try?
    A

    Yes, roaches can become resistant to Advion Roach Bait Gel (or any other roach bait gel) over time if the same active ingredient is continuously used.  We do recommend switching up roach bait gels periodically so that this does not happen. Please take a look at our selection of roach bait gels for some other options.

  • Asked by John from Bronx, Ny

    Q
    Can applying too much of the Advion Roach Bait Gel become harmful? It appeared the bait began to smell is that normal?
    A

    Advion Roach Bait Gel has no odor as listed on the Safety Data Sheet but should only be applied is small pea size drops as this is more attractive to roaches  Place every 10-12 inches where activity is noted.  Applying too much would just make the roaches less likely to eat it.  There are food based attractants in the product but any possible smell would not be harmful.  It would only be harmful if you were to physically ingest a large quantity of the bait.

    Q
    Did I receive the wrong item of Advion roach bait?
    I received my order of Advion cockroach gel bait. I was under the impression that I'd receive the DuPont red and black label. What I received is Syngenta Advion Blue and Green labeled cockroach gel bait. Is there a difference between Advion cockroach gel baits, be it Syngenta or DuPont?
    A
    You are correct in that you received Advion Roach Bait Gel that is blue and green. The labeling has changed and you have received the correct product. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • Asked by Julio from Minneapolis

    Q
    Will Advion Roach Bait Gel kill the eggs that the adults are carrying as well?
    A

    Unfortunately the Advion Roach Bait Gel will not kill the eggs. However, you could use the Gentrol IGR Concentrate along with it to stop the reproductive cycle in the roaches as well. This prevents pest larvae from progressing to the pupal stage of development, so the larvae die before they become breeding adults and future infestations.

    Q
    How soon after spraying Talstar P can I use Advion Roach Bait Gel?
    I bought the Advion Roach Bait Gel and then sprayed Talstar P before I was told not to. We still see live roaches.
    A

    When using Advion Roach Bait Gel it should be applied up high in areas that you do not spray, but they can be used around the same time.  We have a great video here that shows where to apply the bait.   Sprays such as Talstar P, would be applied down low, along base boards, behind the fridge/stove etc where you do not place the bait.  We have a great video here that shows where to spray for perimeter and interior spraying.

    If you sprayed where you should be applying bait, you would want to thoroughly wash the area to remove any residual spray and then apply the bait as needed and directed on the label.

    Q
    What is Advion Roach Bait Gel shelf life?
    A

    Advion Roach Bait Gel has a one year shelf life once the tube has actually been opened. If the tubes you have have not been opened, they should be good for up to 5 years from manufactured date. If the gel is hard, then it is likely it is out of date. If it has been kept in a room temperature room, it is fine.
