Product Overview

Roach Control Kit Rotation A 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 all 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. Temprid FX is an insecticide concentrate with two powerful active ingredients, providing both a quick initial kill and long-lasting residual treatment. 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

If you have already used Roach Control Kit A, we recommend rotating treatment with Roach Control Kit Rotation B and Roach Control Kit Rotation C.

Temprid FX must be diluted with water and applied with a pump sprayer, such as the Chapin 1 gallon pump sprayer.

Details

Complete roach treatment includes two primary parts: Sanitation and Preparation, and the application of products. You will want to inspect for where roaches are hiding and breeding so that you know where to concentrate your energy. Next, prepare for treatment by eliminating food and water sources and reducing and sealing off harborage areas. After performing these crucial preparation steps, you are ready to apply the products in your Roach Control Kit.

 

 

How to Apply Roach Control Kit A

STEP 1: Baiting - Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait Gel

*To use the Maxforce FC Magnum tube, remove the closed tip by gently unscrewing it, and replace it with one of the included reuseable 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 it. 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.

STEP 2: Insect Growth Regulator - Gentrol Point Source Stations

*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.
  • False ceilings.
  • Near refrigerators or other appliances.
  • Refuse areas.

*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.

STEP 3: Spraying – Temprid FX Insecticide Concentrate 

*You will need a hand pump sprayer such as a Chapin 1 gallon pump sprayer to mix and apply Temprid FX.

*Use 2 x 8mL doses (2 bottles) per gallon of water for your first application, and 1 x 8mL dose (1 bottle) for follow-up treatments, if needed.

*To mix Temprid FX: Add when filling spray tank with water, or fill tank 1/3 - 1/2 with water, add Temprid FX, then finish filling the tank. Shake or agitate the mixture before spraying.

*Reapply every 21 days as needed.

*If diluted spray is stored overnight, agitate before using. Only dilute what you plan to use within 24 hours of mixing.

*Apply Temprid FX mixture as a spot or crack and crevice treatment where roaches have been seen or can find shelter or entry. Application sites may include:

  • Entry points such as around doors, windows, and water pipes.
  • Areas where roaches travel such as baseboards and corners.
  • Areas where roaches hide such as behind or under refrigerators, stoves, and sinks.

*Do not apply on top of bait placements or where bait placements may be made. As a general rule, spray low, and bait high.

*Keep pets and children out of the treatment area until the spray is dry.

*Do not spray food handling surfaces or in ways in which food or utensils may be contaminated with the spray.

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.

*Use the included Catchmaster Insect Monitor Glue Boards to track your progress:

  • 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.

*For situations requiring treatments over several months, rotate your baits using our Roach Control Kit B and Roach Control Kit C.

    kinda

    By Alan on 09/25/2015

    I used this product as instructed. I have been finding dead roaches but after two weeks I still find live roaches and the traps are still getting live roaches in them. I am giving it more time as it is killing them. I will respray in two weeks

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    It can take several weeks to see the full result as the roach eggs that were laid prior to the product application are still hatching. Usually after 3 weeks most of the adults will be gone (unless the infestation was severe) and you will start seeing the immature roaches. This new generation of roaches will not be able to breed if the Gentrol in the kit was used during the initial application as they will not reach sexual maturity. It is important to reapply the bait as needed and keep the traps out to help monitor the level of infestation. Please let us know if we can help in any way. We appreciate your feedback and your business!

    German Roach Infestation cure and Do My Own Pest Control

    By Bobby on 07/09/2016

    It is always pleasant to have the experience of doing business with a company that offers, great product and outstanding service! Pleasant and Rare, I might add. Your are currently looking at one of those rare companies and if you need do it yourself pest control, well just look at the company name. You are at the right place. I have used two, "professional pesticide to homeowners" type business's before, both were good. This company has an outstanding array of products and excellent service via internet or phone. Great employees, great product, great service, need I say more. I used the roach control kit, rotation A for a family members condo, worked great wiping out about 98% of the pest with the first application. So if you need it, get it here! Great value too, do not waste your money on pest control contracts or grocery store or big box store watered down junk, worthless! Great stuff, great price! P.S. I apologize for sounding like Trump, but this company is excellent and a blessing. Highly Recommended *****

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Is the Roach Control Kit the best roach killer you have?

Have tried everything gone for week or 2 then come back have even had company spray

A
I recommend purchasing one of our roach control kits, the kit comes with several products which when used in conjunction is the best option when treating for roaches. You receive a liquid insecticide, a bait, as well as a growth regulator to control the lifecycle of the roaches. The Rotations kits also include glue boards to help monitor infestations.

Q
Is the Roach Control Kit Rotation A safe for children?

I have a 5 month old- is this safe for children? I've heard raid can cause major defects in children so want to be very careful and sure with this! I know the obvious of don't use the product right where baby will be playing but what about fumes or anything like that?

A

We would recommend keeping children and/or pets out of the area while treating with the products inside of the Roach Control Kit Rotation A. Once the Temprid SC has dried completely, it is safe for children to return to the area. There is no problem with the fumes because this product does not have a scent and is colorless as well. The Maxforce Magnum is used inside of cabinets and drawers so be mindful if your children go into these areas. The Gentrol Point Sources are a birth control for the roaches and certain other insects. It will only affect them. The Catchmaster 100i Insect Monitors do not have any lure or attractant inside of it. It is solely used for monitoring purposes.

Q
What is the difference between Roach Control Kit Rotation A and Roach Control Kit Rotation B?
A

Roach Control Kit Rotation A contains Maxforce FC Magnum and Roach Control Kit Rotation B contains InVict Gold Roach Bait Gel. All other products in both kits are the same. For a good IPM program it is important to rotate the baits every 90-120 days. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Roaches for more helpful information on a successful program.

Q
Which works better for roach control, diatomaceous earth or boric acid ?

Roaches are living under my counter and on top of my dishwasher.

A

It is important to understand that a product like boric acid or diatomaceous earth are only going to work on those roaches that actually come into contact with them. The majority of roaches live in cracks, crevices, and wall voids, and will only come out when absolutely necessary. Boric acid and DE have nothing in them to actually attract the roaches, so they must be strategically placed into the places where roaches live, and it will take several days for the roaches to actually die after they ingest these types of products.  During this time they can continue to breed. We would recommend using a roach bait gel, an insect growth regulator, and an insecticide spray for faster results.  You may want to take a look at our Roach Control Kits, which contain all of these products.
