    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.

    Q
    Does the Advion Roach Bait Gel attract cockroaches?
    Just want to make sure I'm using product correct and not making problem worst by attracting more roaches. I have not see any bait disturbed. I placed in cracks, crevices, in bait pack. Some of gel dried. I have not seen any dead roaches .
    A

    Yes, cockroaches are attracted to Advion Roach Bait Gel when they cross paths with where it has been applied, but it will not attracts new roaches that were not already in your home.  The product works quickly and efficently if used properly as the label directs.  Gel baits can dry out after two weeks or so, so it does need to be refreshed every couple of weeks.

    Q
    Does advion Roach killer kill bed bugs too?
    A

    No Advion will not work to eliminate bedbugs. We recommend looking at our Bed Bug Kit Page. We have taken the guess work out of what products you will need to treat with and put them in kits depending on how many rooms you are treating. Each Kit comes with a 5 Step Treatment Guide on how to properly and thoroughly treat for bedbugs. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    07/26/2018
    Q
    How long does it take to start see results from Advion Roach Bait Gel?
    A

     

    Advion Roach Bait Gel is a slow kill so that it has time to be taken back to the colony and spread.  Roaches can start dying within a few hours to longer. How long it takes to eliminate a roach infestation depends on how large the infestation is, how consistent and thorough you are being with treatments and what products you are using. There is not a set time; it can take but it can take weeks or months even to get complete control. Advion Roach Bait gel is typically not used alone but in combination with other products. We would recommend one of our roach control kits. You can see the kits by clicking on the link here. We also have a great article for eliminating them that can offer some great advice; you can find it here.

  • Asked by Lourene from Keaau Hawaii
    07/10/2014
    Q
    Should roaches dead from Advion be left around kitchen or can I clean them up?
    I thought the affected roaches would take the gel back to their nest and die, then the dead roaches would be ingested by other roaches and die. But, I see the roaches dying in my kitchen. What should I expect. Heavy infestation but not many have died yet after 2 days.
    A
    Older or unhealthy roaches can be affected much faster than younger/healthier roaches. You can go ahead and clean uyp dead roaches that are out in the open. With a heavy infestation, you can expect several weeks before you see full resulst.

    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.

  • Asked by Karrah from Berwyn Il
    07/29/2017
    Q
    How long after applying a residual spray do I need to wait to use Advion Roach Bait Gel?
    A

    You can use an insecticide spray and a bait like Advion Roach Bait Gel in the same room at the same time, just not on the same surfaces.  The rule of thumb is spray low (areas like baseboards, kick plates below cabinets, and under appliances) and bait high (in areas like inside cabinets and drawers and up higher near small appliances such as microwaves, toasters and coffee pots).  Please take a moment to look over our Roach Control Guide for more information on treating and preventing a roach infestation.

  • Asked by Jeanette from San Diego, Ca

    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.

  • Asked by Anne from Melbourne, Vic
    02/13/2018
    Q
    Will the Advion Roach Bait Gel work after surface spray?
    I have purchased Advion cockroach gel to treat a mild infestation and it worked great. For months we didn't see any roaches in our apartment but they are in the building complex as we see them in hallways, stairway etc.. someone suggested to use a surface spray to keep them from coming in so we did. Now after some time we are starting to see them again alive ones. I have sprayed this surface spray everywhere, in cracks and cervices, on pipes in cupboards. On the container it states that it will continue to kill and control for 9 months. If I start using Advion gel again and place on the same spot where sprayed is it going to work? Any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.
    A

    Ideally, you should not place bait such as Advion Roach Bait Gel anywhere where a residual spray has been applied and is still active. We would recommend waiting at least 2-4 weeks before baiting on surfaces which have been sprayed with a residual insecticide, but how long that residual may last really depends on the product you used. It it has been several months since you have sprayed, then usually there would not be enough residual left to deter raoches from the bait. Another option would be using the bait in Bait Plate Stations so that it is not placed direcly on treated surfaces. Please take a few moments to review our Roach Treatment Guide for more tips on treating this pest.

  • Asked by Christie from Justin
    06/22/2016
    Q
    Will the Advion Roach Bait Gelt or killed bug harm a bird such as a small parrot if ingested?
    I have a small parrot who puts anything and everything in his mouth. If he gets a roach that has took the bait and shows signs of death will it harm him?
    A

    It is possible for a bird to be harmed after ingesting the Advion Roach Bait Gel as they can be pretty sensitive to chemicals.  We would recommend only applying in areas that the bird does not have access to.  We have a great video here that shows where to apply the bait. You can see the video by clicking here.  In order for the bird to be harmed from eating a killed or dying roach from the bait, they would generally have to eat a large amount but we would recommend checking with your vet to be sure as birds can be more sensitive then other animals.

  • Asked by Frank from Pa
    09/14/2016
    Q
    How close is too close to apply residual roach spray near roach baits?
    Early on in my battle against the German roach I was baiting right next to where I applied Demon Max spray, which is bad, as I now know.
    A

    You really should not apply your roach bait gel in the same areas where you are spraying, as the spray can contaminate the bait.  The general rule of thumb is to "spray low and bait high."  You will spray along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, underneath appliances, and areas where plumbing meets the wall.  Bait should be applied mainly in locations where you typically would not want to spray anyway, such as in cabinets and drawers and underneath countertops.
