My neighbors have a real bad roach problem. They have already made their way into my house, but it's not bad yet. I know it can get bad quick.
If you have a lot of mulch near your house, you may want to consider raking it back at least six inches away from the house. Also, trimming bushes so that you can see the soil beneath them and so they do not touch the house will help reduce soil moisture and stop the insects from gaining access to the house via the bushes. We recommend using Demon WP for roach control. Demon WP is a wettable powder that is diluted in water, and then sprayed around door frames, window frames, in areas where utilities (cables, pipes, wires) enter into a structure, around the bottom of the foundation and other area where insects are known to harbor. Inside along baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and other potential millipede harborages. We recommend purchasing our Roach Kit #2. This kit also contains contains roach bait gel and insect growth regulator to get rid of the roaches that have already made their way indoors as well as the Demon WP you need to use outdoors.
