Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait Rotation 1 Reservoir was the first roach gel labeled Reduced-Risk by the EPA, meaning the active ingredient is safer around people, pets and the environment, yet is tough on household roaches. In fact, roaches almost can't resist the bait formulation of Alpine, and once they feed on the bait they will transfer it to other roaches causing eventual death. Alpine Roach Gel will start killing roaches within hours after contact. Alpine even attracts bait-averse cockroaches. Labeled for use indoors and outdoors and even sensitive areas such as food-handling establishments, food and feed processing plants, hospitals and nursing homes.
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.

Apply in small drops (about the size of a pencil eraser) in cracks & crevices; Kitchens, Bathrooms and other areas
Apply drops every several feet - Recommended 10-20 spots of bait per 100 sq. ft. (depending on the Infestation)
To apply gel, remove cap from tip of applicator tube. Apply gel in a 3 to 6 millimeter diameter spot (0.25 to 0.50 gram). Approximately 10 spots per 100 square feet are recommended for use under conditions with low to moderate infestation. For more severe infestations, approximately 20 spots per 100 square feet are recommended. Apply many spots in areas of roach traffic and suspected harborage. Numerous small application spots are preferable to fewer larger application spots. Bait may be placed on top of or prior to non-repellent insecticide applications.
DO NOT treat food preparation surfaces. DO NOT apply gels to areas that have been recently sprayed with a repellent insecticide. DO NOT spray repellent insecticide products over gel placements as this may make gel repellent and reduce its effectiveness. DO NOT place treatments in locations where routine cleaning might remove bait or transfer bait to food or food preparation surfaces.
This product will stick to surfaces that are not dusty or greasy. Reapply if gel placements are no longer visible and/or reinfestation occurs. Replace cap when finished dispensing gel. Use paper towel to remove unwanted bait placements and then discard in trash.
Crack & Crevice Treatment
This product can be applied as spots or as a line along cracks and crevices. Gel bait should be applied directly into cracks and crevices where insects hide. Place the applicator tip directly into cracks and crevices and deposit gel in small spots or in a continuous bead. Bait should be in the void area and not on open or exposed surfaces.
Food Handling Establishments
Application within food areas of food handling establishments is limited to cracks and crevices where insects hide. To apply gel, remove cap from tip of applicator tube. Apply gel in a 3 to 6 millimeter diameter bead (0.25 to 0.50 gram). Approximately 10 bait placements per 100 square feet are recommended for use under conditions with low to moderate infestation. For more severe infestations, approximately 20 bait placements per 100 square feet are recommended. Numerous small applications are preferable to fewer larger applications. Bait should not be used in open areas or on surfaces where contamination of food or food handling equipment may occur. Replace cap when finished dispensing gel.
Reapply gel if previous applications are no longer visible and/or reinfestation occurs.
Applications in Aircraft
Application within passenger areas of aircraft is limited to Crack & Crevice treatment only. Apply in areas between elements of construction (such as areas under sinks, openings around pipes, under shelving, where shelving meets other shelves or the wall, area between and around microwaves, where support braces attach to the main structure, and where seats are attached to the floor). Apply 10 to 20 bait spots per 100 square feet as described above. DO NOT apply bait to areas where food, utensils, or food preparation surfaces may become contaminated. DO NOT apply bait to areas that are routinely washed such as cracks and crevices in tops of tables, food preparation, and food holding surfaces as bait may be removed by washing. Care should be taken to avoid depositing gel onto exposed surfaces. If gel contacts an exposed surface, remove gel and wash exposed surface. During follow-up visits, inspect bait placements and reapply when previous applications are no longer visible and/or reinfestation occurs. DO NOT apply any bait in cockpit area.
Use for control of cockroaches. Inject into cracks and crevices around windows and doors, porches, screens, eaves, patios, garages, under stairways, and other areas adjacent to structures where cockroaches may find harborage.
This Stuff Really Works and It's Fast! A Little Goes a Long Way, I used 2 tubes when 1 or even 1/2 a tube would have treated a Kitchen, 2 Baths, Laundry Room and Pantry. After 2 1/2 years No Roaches Greeting me at the Coffee Pot every Morning.
I'm an ex-PC operator and we used to do crack n crevice for severe infestations of Germans.
I've used Avert, Pre-Empt, Maxforce (with hydra methylnon and Fipronil) which all worked well.
Alpine works just as good.
Roaches instantly drawn to the bait. Within 30 minutes they're walking fast and dying.
I ordered a box to help a coworker who had them pretty bad. Of course he had them in the usual primary areas but they had also branched out into the bedrooms in the furniture and electronics.
The roaches were instantly drawn to the bait. I would say it's the strongest attraction I've seen in gel bait out all that I've used (even faster than MaxforceFC).
The only cons were that the bait keeps oozing so you have keep moving and applying. Also the bait dries a little faster than some previous baits. Otherwise I'm very impressed with this bait.
I had a minor problem with some cockroaches in the kitchen. I tried name brand sprays and boric acid, neither worked. I brought the Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait and PRESTO the cockroaches were gone within a day. And after a few weeks still no sign of those pest. Great stuff!!!
What are the doses of Alpine Gel to fight against the Germanic and American cockroaches.
According to the Alpine Roach Gel Bait product label "Apply gel in a 3 - 6 mm diameter spot (0.25 - 0.50 g). Approximately 10 spots per 100 ft2 are recommended for use under conditions with low to moderate infestation. For more severe infestations, approximately 20 spots per 100 ft2 are recommended. Apply many spots in areas of roach traffic and suspected harborage. Numerous small application spots are preferable to fewer larger application spots." Each spot of bait should be the size of a small pea. Each tube of bait gel is weighs about 30 grams.
We had the house treated (basement/crawl space) and inside with a spray/dust and the Alpine Gel. After 4 days we are still seeing 1-2 "baby" german roaches waking around on the counter. Does the bait kill them as well or do they have to grow up before the bait will kill them?
Alpine bait gel does kill adults and babies. They do have to eat the gel and come in contact with others. We would recommend using an insect growth regulator in conjunction with the Alpine bait gel to stop the roaches from reproducing. We would recommend putting out Gentrol Point Sources in various places around the home. These work for up to three months.
Is roach bait, such as the Alpine gel good to use in apartments where the roaches are coming from outside?
Will the bait attract more roaches, or will it keep them away as well?
Yes, Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait is a great roach gel bait. The roaches will come out pick up the bait and transfer the bait back in to the wall voids to where the other roaches are killing them. Please make sure to thoroughly clean and keep foods sealed, as not to deter the roaches from the bait. It will not keep them away, nor will attract more. Just make sure to clean kitchen of any greases, or other organic material.
For a light to moderate infestation, you will apply 10 spots of Alpine Cockroach Bait Gel per 100 square feet. The diameter spots need to be between 3-6 mm (0.25-0.50 g). The number of tubes used will depend upon the size area you are treated. Most homes use 2-3 tubes depending on the severity of the issue.
