What can be put in the Actisol Compact Portable Aerosol Unit?

I work for a company, and we are battling a constant roach issue at commercial account. Was wondering what other insecticides aside from Pyrethrins can be put in for void treatments. Can you only use oil based insecticides in Actisol? Can you mix up water based insecticide?


When using an Actisol Compact Portable Aerosol Unit, we would not recommend that you use any wettable powders or a microencapsulated product.  Otherwise any insecticide can be used in it really.  Temprid SC is a very good product that is labeled for roaches. It has two active ingredients in it to combat bugs. Be sure to also use a growth regulator, such as Gentrol IGR and a bait gel, such as Maxforce Magnum. Do not spray any bait because it will contaminate it and the roaches will not consume it.  If you are looking for a fast knockdown or contact kill then pyrethrins like Exciter would be the only ones recommended.
