    Q
    What product would work best to kill roaches in a mobile home?
    A
    We recommend using three products to get rid of roaches. A roach bait gel, an IGR (insect growth regulator), and a residual insecticide. We offer all three products in the Roach Control Kit 2. This professional kit includes 1 packet of Demon WP Insecticide (which makes 4 gallons of finished solution) for spraying the outside perimeter of the home and inside underneath appliances, behind cabinets, under toilets and sinks, etc. You'll also get 4 x 30 gram tubes of Advion Roach Bait Gel--one of the best roach baits on the market. Advion can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The bait contains a slow-acting poison that attracts and kills feeding roaches, who also spread the bait to other roaches by contact or by sharing food. Finally, 20 Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals. Demon WP must be applied with a 1 gallon pump sprayer.

    Q
    Will MaxForce Insect Granules be a threat to the bullfrog in our backyard pond?
    Our yard is filled with American Cockroaches. I'm concerned about the frog if she consumes the affected roaches.
    A
    The Maxforce Fine Granular Insect Bait granules are so small and only strong enough to kill small insects that it should pose no threat to the frogs in your yard.  Also, dead roaches would be more of a food source for ants and other foraging insects.  Most of the time frogs go after live insects that are moving and cater to their hunting habits.

    Q
    Will this product 'Maxforce Fine Granular Insect Bait' harm household plants when sprinkled on the top soil ?
    I think this is where the 'fruit flies' or 'plant gnats' are living .
    A
    Maxforce fine granular bait will not harm household plants.  However, Maxforce fine granular insect bait is not labeled for fungus gnats and would not be the right product to use.  Fungus gnats from plants usually occur when the plant soil remains too wet.  You should take the potted plants outside to dry the soil a little bit and spray the top soil with our popular Talstar liquid insecticide.  Talstar is labeled for lawn and ornamentals and will not harm the plants.
