The Connecticut Roach Control Kit is ideal for beginning or cleanout treatments of cockroach infestations in homes, apartments, and similar areas. This kit contains the chemical products we recommend using after you have been able to inspect the treatment area and take preventative measures such as eliminating food and water sources and harborage areas. Using these techniques together is crucial for effective roach treatment.
Our Roach Control Kits include Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitor glue boards to help monitor your infestation and treatment. Maxforce FC Magnum is a powerful roach bait gel that contains five times the active ingredient as regular Maxforce FC roach bait, killing roaches by ingestion, contact, and transfer from one to another. Gentrol Point Source Stations are a convenient and discreet way to apply the Insect Growth Regulator hydroprene, effectively interrupting roaches’ breeding. PestXpert Foaming Insect Killer will penetrate deep cracks and crevices and creates in invisible barrier for roaches. The foam dries clear and can be sprayed at high pressure from up to 5 feet away.
Glue boards are a simple tool for monitoring roach activity before, during, and after treatment. One plastic plunger is included per order, not per tube.
*To use the Maxforce FC Magnum tube, remove the closed tip by gently unscrewing it, and replace it with one of the included reusable open tips. Use the provided plastic plunger or a bait gun to dispense the gel.
*Apply small bait placements approximately ¼ inch in diameter directly to cracks and crevices where roaches are most likely to encounter them. Ideal bait placements include:
Behind kitchen cabinets and counter tops.
Behind wall hangings such as pictures, clocks, or posters
Behind, next to, and under the stove.
In the corners up under the sink and other cabinets.
In stored paper bags and boxes.
Around pipes, cords, and cables that come out of the wall.
Behind and under bathroom fixtures.
Behind the medicine cabinet and vanity.
In any cracks or crevices around shelves or wood
in corners and under railing in and on drawers.
*Do not apply bait in spots where you have used or plan to use insecticide sprays.
*Smaller, more frequent bait placements are better accepted than fewer, larger placements.
*Use up to 1.5 grams of bait (15 x 0.1gm placements) per square yard for light to moderate infestations.
*Use up to 3.0 grams of bait (30 x 0.1gm placements) per square yard for severe infestations.
*After application, replace the open tip with the closed tip to keep bait fresh, and store in a cool, dry place out of reach of children or pets.
*Reapply bait every 2-3 weeks or when placements appear to be gone.
*Roaches will die by ingesting the bait, physical contact with the bait or its residue, or from contact with roaches or feces of roaches that have consumed the bait.
*Do not activate Gentrol Point Source Stations until you are ready to use them. To activate a station, press firmly on the pouch located on the side of the device until you hear a snap or pop to indicate the capsule has been opened.
*Place the station in any orientation (vertical or horizontal) in areas where roach activity has been found. Ideal point source placements include:
In and around kitchen or bathroom cabinets
Inside closets or pantries
Near refrigerators or other appliances
*Each station treats up to 75 square feet for 90 days from activation. For areas larger than 75 square feet, use multiple stations.
*For convenient follow up, you can mark the month when a station has been activated with a pen directly on the station.
*For vertical placements, remove the paper backing to expose the sticky surface on the back of the station and press firmly onto a clean surface.
*The active ingredient will move from the station throughout the treatment area, so roaches do not have to come into direct contact with the station in order to pick up the active ingredient.
*Do not apply baits, sprays, or other insecticides directly onto the stations, although these may be used in the same areas.
PestXpert Foaming Insect Killer comes in a convenient, ready to use aerosol can.
Spray the following areas indoors:
Directly into cracks and crevices
In walls, dark corners of rooms, cabinets and closets
Beneath and behind sinks, stoves, refrigerators, and cabinets
Around plumbing and where other utilities enter the home
Around waste containers
Remember, bait high (with Maxforce), spray low (with PestXpert).
STEP 4: Be Patient
*Complete roach control may take from a few weeks up to six months, depending on the size of the population and your diligence with good sanitation practices. Large populations do not appear overnight, so they will not be eliminated overnight.
Separate each card along the perforated lines to create three smaller boards from each larger card. This will create a total of 12 monitors from the 4 larger cards.
Fold each trap gently to create a right triangle shape. Remove the adhesive covering on the angled top tab, then firmly press the logoed panel to the adhesive, creating a secure triangle trap with three openings.
Carefully remove the interior paper to expose the glue surface inside the trap.
Place glue traps in areas where you have found roaches to hide, travel, or breed, such as in and under cabinets, behind toilets, under appliances, and in corners. If desired, remove the cover sheet on the bottom of each trap to expose the adhesive. Press firmly to a clean, dry surface to secure traps in place.
Monitor traps weekly to check your progress.
Replace traps if full of roaches, dust, or other debris.
*Reapply products according to the instructions above until the roaches are eliminated.
