How is Demon WP Insecticide used to treat for roaches?

I used Demon WP for 2 to 3 months for roaches and used 8 packets total. I am still seeing roaches so am I not doing something right or do I need something stronger?


Demon WP Insecticide is a great product for roach control however it will only treat roaches that cross the areas that have been sprayed. There is no transfer effect with Demon WP Insecticide which is typically the best way to eradicate a roach infestation as majority of the population stays hidden. Demon WP is mixed at 1 packet per gallon (maintenance) or 2 packets per gallon of water (cleanout) and can be used both indoors and outdoors for roaches.  A combination of products of residual insecticide, roach bait and insect growth regulator is the most effective way to eradicate roaches. We recommend one of our Roach Control Kits that provide the most effective combination of products to treat for roaches. These kits provide enough for your initial treatment as well as 2-3 follow up applicaitons. Repeat applications of the residual spray and roach bait are required every 7-14 days. If after 60 days you are still seeing roaches, you will want to rotate to Kit B or C for a different roach bait as they can develop bait resistance to the same bait over time.   View our How to Use Roach Control Kit A Video for a quick tutorial on how to use the products in the kit.  Pleae view our How to Get Rid of Roaches Treatment Guide for step by step instructions for a successful roach treatment program.
