Will Optigard Flex Liquid work to keep Palmetto Bugs from entering my home?

We have tried several products (including professional) to keep these large roaches from entering our rural Florida home. We need an effective perimeter treatment because we have pet birds (small parrots) and don't want to use insecticides around them.


Optigard Flex Liquid will definitely help reduce the palmetto bugs on your property. You should note that because palmetto bugs can fly that there is a chance that they could fly into your home without ever having touched a treated area. You can also help reduce the amount of palmetto bugs on your property by removing yard debris and turning mulched areas frequently to reduce the amount of moisture up close to your home. Please take a moment to read our article Integrated Pest Management to learn more about how to make your property less favorable to these pests.
