We have tried different chemicals from local stores(home depot) and haven't binnacle to exterminate the roaches .What do you suggest? Is there a local store where we can purchase the products?
We would recommend using a combination of products in order to combat German roaches. First, we would recommend using a bait gel, such as Maxforce Magnum. It is a very good bait gel that has .05% Fipronil. You will place this inside cabinets, drawers, etc. Do not spray near baits, do not use heavy detergents or cleaners, or do not use in very dusty area. Gel will dry out and get a dry skin on top but roaches will still eat it up to a year. However, if contaminated or gone, reapply. An insecticide that can be used is Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide. You will use this in areas where bait cannot be applied. It is a crack and crevice treatment and can be used indoors. You will use 3 fl. oz. per gallon of water. We would also recommend using Gentrol IGR as well. This can be mixed with Phantom in the same sprayer. Gentrol IGR stops the roach life cycle. It works for up to 4 months.
These are all professional grade products that are not available in a local store. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
