Q&A Home

Esther from St Louis, Missouri writes,

I placed the roach bait in my apartment for a month. There are still live roaches. Why?

I place the bait gel inside the kitchen cabinet and corner of walls.


Roaches do not get there overnight so they will not leave overnight. It takes time for the bait to work through an active population. We highly recommend applying an insecticide and an insect growth regulator to the indoor and outdoor perimeter of the structure for a better treatment. I have also included a roach control article that offers great information. Please put out fresh bait once every two weeks. The food based ingredients attract them for consumption and they spread the product to one another.
