I cleaned out my cabinets and closets and applied Advion Roach Bait Gel as directed. Why am I now seeing more roach activity?

How often should I continue to bait? I am seeing many dead or slowly crawling, but it seems they are multiplying. Help!!

Answer:

Advion Roach Bait Gel needs to be replaced every 2 weeks (or sooner, if it gets consumed) during an active roach infestation. The increase in number of roaches you are seeing is due to the active ingredient being transfered throughout the colony and causing the roaches' nervous system to overexcite and begin to break down. Each roach that comes in contact with the bait can contaminate up to 40 other roaches by way of contact, feces, or roaches feeding on other poisioned dead roaches. Typically the amount roaches you see out in a home are only a small portion of the roach population size so seeing an increase in activitiy is very normal.  If you have not done so already, you may want to look over our Roach Control Guide for more information on doing a complete roach treatment.
