Can cockroaches become resistant to Advion Roach Bait Gel over time?

Is this possible? If so, what should I do now to kill the new roaches? If not, what should I do differently now to make sure the gel is effective?


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. Roaches are a persistent pest and require multiple treatments using a combination of products in order to be completely eradicated. Please see our Roach Control Guide for step by step instructions on how to do a full treatment.
