Bengal Roach Spray is a permethrin based product that uses a unique dry spray to get into deep crevices and cracks to control roaches where they live. Simply place the extension tube that comes with the can into the top of the can and press the spray button. Use Bengal Roach Spray in cracks and crevices; behind baseboards and sinks; under and behind sinks, cabinets, stoves, and refrigerators; around doors and windows; in crawl spaces and attics. Bengal Roach Spray can be reapplied every four weeks if needed.
This is not a professional grade product. Please review our Roach Control page to learn more about controlling roaches and protecting your home with professional grade products.
I sprayed it on a roach, why didn't it kill the bug instantly?
Bengal Roach Spray is designed for total kill and not quick knockdown. Bengal Roach Spray is designed to irritate roaches before killing, which causes them to run out of their hiding places to die on surfaces where they can be picked up and disposed. Roaches that come into contact with Bengal Roach Spray will die in a few minutes to an hour.
Why did the roaches come back?
Bengal Roach Spray does not leave a lingering residue; it degrades over a few days or weeks and is no longer available to kill roaches. If your neighbors have roaches or they are brought back in to your house in boxes, sacks, old clothing or other infested materials, re-application will be necessary.
My mom complained about cockroaches. I go to college but came back to the house for the summer. I deal with cockroaches at my apartment and had been unsuccessful at ridding my own home of them in the past. You would never see hers until nighttime. If you came in the kitchen and turned on a light they'd scatter. My mom had figured out they must be living behind the refrigerator. When she left town for a week she left a bottle of this on the counter to try. (It was more expensive, so foolishly I'd never tried it on my own problem before). That night, after putting the animals in the bedroom, I sprayed EVERYWHERE. Behind and under the fridge, behind the oven, by the trashcan, under ALL the counters, etc. Had no scent and I quietly went to bed. Next morning, what had been a clean kitchen floor and counter, became a cockroach graveyard. HUNDREDS of those disgusting insects were dead and strewn across the floor. It was so gross. I vacuumed the dead ones and repeated the following night. Same result but to a less intense degree. I'm repeating the ritual until I see no more (and probably once or twice after that for good measure). BEST PRODUCT EVER (and I've tried just about every product out there). This is unbelievably effective. Buying it for my own apartment now!!
30 years ago I had a horrible problem with roaches at our house. I tried all the sprays that Home Depot, Lowes, and grocery stores had. It was as if I was spraying a water mist from a spray bottle. No relief. Then one day while visiting my mother-in-law my wife told her about our problem and she pulled out a can of Bengal and said "why don't you try this" We did. Man there were dead roaches everywhere. In just a few days our problem was over. Since then my wife and I retired and moved out to a ranch. Now I use it for a bad infestation of scorpions. It works great! It keeps them out of the house for about 3 months before I have to spray again. We find dead scorpions everywhere. There is a special Bengal spray for spiders and scorpions (green can) but the roach spray works just as well. The spider and scorpion spray kills them quicker but you have to be sure to wear a mask when spraying, it's powerful.
The very best spray I ever used. I never saw so many roaches in my life. I'm so thankful to Bengel spray and all who made it, they come running right away and expire. Our home and camper are bug free thank you again so much, sincerely we can sleep...
Why do you say Bengal Roach Spray will kill roaches? Mine must be wearing suits of armor.
I used Bengal Roach Bombs and the Bengal Roach Spray. I still have roaches. I do not have a bug infestation just enough to drive me nuts and I want them gone before they do get really bad.
Bengal Roach Spray is labeled for roaches but is not a professional grade product. It will flush them out of their hiding places. The roaches that do not come in contact with the treated areas will not be eradicated.The first thing you should know is that bombs are highly ineffective when trying to control roaches of any species. Bombs will only kill while they are going off (they leave no residual behind) and contrary to popular belief, they do not penetrate into walls or inside cabinets or under furniture, so it will only kill the roaches that come out while the bomb is dispersing. If you are looking to accurately, quickly, and completely eliminate the roaches in your home you will want to follow the steps outlined in our article How To Get Rid of Roaches, and use either of our Roach Control Kits accordingly. The products in our kits are professional grade items (just like the pros that come out use) and are put together to help you save money and get the results you are looking for the fastest. Roach problems do not develop over night and will not go away overnight, so patience and time will be needed for the products to do their job and get to the center of the colony you don't see. If you have any other questions after looking at our article and the roach kits, feel free to contact us anytime.
If you spray Bengal Roach Spray on your counter top, can you clean it off after it dries?
Can you spray the Bengal roach spray on the counters wait for them to dry and then should you clean it off?
Bengal Roach Spray can be applied to cracks and crevices; behind baseboards and sinks; under and behind sinks, cabinets, stoves, and refrigerators; around doors and windows; in crawl spaces and attics. The product will leave a residual and it can be reapplied every 4 weeks, if needed, so it should NOT be applied to food handling surfaces such as countertops. If you spray the product and then clean it off, you’ll be getting rid of the residual so it would be like wasting product.
Do you have to leave the house after spraying Bengal Roach Spray?
Bengal Roach Spray is designed to be used in cracks and crevices, therefore it is not necessary to vacate your home when applying. As a general rule, when applying insecticides, you would want to keep people and pets out of the treating area until the product has fully dried.
