How Advion Roach Bait Gel Works
The brief delay in mortality caused by the active ingredient Indoxacarb allows cockroaches to consume the bait and return to the harborage site to contaminate other cockroaches resulting in significant reduction in infestation levels. Each roach that comes in contact with bait can contaminate up to 40 other roaches by way of contact, feces, or the other roaches feeding on its poisoned carcass. This domino effect knocks out roach populations at an incredible rate.
German, American, Australian, Smoky-Brown, Brown, Asian, and Brown-Banded species of cockroaches
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ADVION COCKROACH BAIT GEL: Cockroaches such as German, American, Australian, Smoky-Brown, Brown, Asian, Oriental, and Brown-Banded.
Use Advion Roach Bait Gel indoors and outdoors as a crack and crevice treatment to control even the toughest of infestations. Advion cockroach bait gel is excellent for German roaches as they are the most common indoor infesting roach. Advion roach bait gel may be used in conjunction with Insect Growth Regulators, such as Gentrol Point Source Stations, for even more complete control of all life stages of cockroaches.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Indoxacarb, 0.6%
Advion Roach Bait Gel Application Instructions
Always read the product label completely before use.
- For heavy infestations of cockroaches, apply 3 to 5 spots of ADVION cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet.
- For light to moderate infestations of cockroaches, apply 1-3 spots of ADVION cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet.
- Each spot of ADVION gel bait should equal about 0.5 grams (approx. 1/4” diameter)
- For all levels of cockroach infestations, when a bead of ADVION® cockroach gel bait is used, apply a small thin bead that is less than 1/8” wide and approximately 2 inches long.
Each 30 g tube yields approximately 60 bait placements. Each box of 4 x 30 g tubes yields approximately 240 placements.
Advion Roach Bait Gel is for use in the following areas:
Residential, Institutional, Commercial, and Industrial Areas; Use sites include single and multi-family residential buildings, schools, commercial and industrial facilities (including warehouses, apartments, supermarkets, restaurants, motels, hotels, hospitals, food handling/storage establishments), and transportation equipment such as aircraft, trains, ships, boats, buses; residential homes, industrial facilities, offices, warehouses, commercial kitchens, hospitals, schools, nursing homes, hotels, buses, trains, aircraft, retail and commercial establishments, and other areas infested with cockroaches
Where to apply Advion Roach Bait Gel INDOORS:
- 3 to 5 spots of gel bait per 10 linear feet for heavy infestations.
- 1 to 3 spots of gel bait per 10 linear feet for light to moderate infestations.
ADVION cockroach gel should be applied to areas frequented by cockroaches such as between different elements of construction, between equipment and floors, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, and behind and under appliances, cabinets, sinks, closets, and any other equipment that cockroaches are typically known to hide.
See our Indoor Roach Control Guide for more examples of indoor placement.
Where to apply Advion Roach Bait Gel OUTDOORS:
- A thorough inspection around a structure may reveal areas where cockroaches are gaining access. Attempts should be made to remove the access.
- ADVION cockroach gel bait may also be applied as a spot or thin bead (see above) to pest entry sites such as along windows, doors, between construction elements, sewer areas, adjacent trees which harbor cockroaches, along walls, garbage holding areas, or suitable placement site acting as a cockroach harborage. Bait placements should be made to reduce the potential of subsequent human contact.
- Bait placements should be inspected periodically and fresh bait applied as needed.
- Bait should be placed in cracks and crevices to reduce exposure to rain, dust, and sunlight.

Extra Tips for Using Advion Roach Gel Bait
- Avoid applying ADVION cockroach gel to surfaces recently treated with residual sprays.
- Surfaces treated with ADVION cockroach gel should not be treated with residual sprays. Keep sprays low and baits high.
- Repeat applications may be made upon inspection during follow-up inspections of the treated areas.
- Do not apply to surfaces that food contacts.
- Do not allow open foods to contact gel material.
* Do not apply bait to surfaces where the temperature may exceed 120-130 degrees F because this may cause the bait to liquefy and the gel to lose effectiveness.
* If gel comes into contact with exposed surfaces, remove the bait and wash the area with soap and water.
* Store out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight for up to one year.
* Avoid placing bait on porous surfaces, e.g. concrete or cardboard, or where it may be exposed to air currents. These conditions may cause the bait to dry out and be less attractive.
* If response slows down, try rotating with a different brand of cockroach bait.
* Always practice good sanitation by eliminating other food and water sources to make the bait more attractive.

Worked like a miracle
By Gail on 06/12/2007
My husband and I could hardly believe it. The Advion Cockroach Gel Bait worked like a miracle. My husband used it first on Saturday morning, 6/9/07. The next day most of the gel had been eaten off the back of our dog feeder (against the wall, so the dogs couldn't get it). That had been the roach's favorite hunting ground. I applied some more, and by that night they were, for the most part, gone. Today is Tuesday and they're GONE! I actually bought way too much, so I am going to help out two of my friends, who each have problems that they haven't been able to fix. I know that with one tube each, their problems will be over. It really is a miraculous product. Thank you so much for having such a wonderful product.

I've never felt compelled to write a review like this, but here goes... After moving into my dream house I discovered I had a huge roach problem. Every morning when I snapped on the lights in the kitchen you see them scurrying everywhere. Even the exterminator coming several times brought no salvation. After reading the reviews here, I bought some Advion and went to work putting it out as recommended. The next morning when I went into the kitchen I was greeted by DOZENS of dead or dying roaches. I have not seen a live one in days. If you have a roach problem, look no further!

Attractive Gel (the key is dots)
By Ron in indiana on 06/17/2009
I have bait resistant roaches in my area. I put this down with about 8 small dots on a 1"x2 index card in several areas of the home (I don't like gel on cabinets). About 2 hours later, the bait behind the fridge was gone, in cabinets around the home, gone, under the table gone. Advion Roach Bait Gel is the best attractive bait I have seen, it draws the bugs out and feeds them their last meal!! Buy the bait gun for easy control of putting down the dots.

By William in SW Florida on 05/26/2010
This stuff is AMAZING!!!! I tried several different brands of store brought bug spray. Several different types of roach baits. I was getting up in the middle of the night to spray the roach infestation in my kitchen. Nothing even put a dent in the roach population. After ONE (yup one) application of Advion.....NO ROACHES!! If you have a German cockroach problem, BUY THIS STUFF!!! It really really works!!

Bye bye Roaches!
By Suzanne in Tampa, FL on 06/14/2010
We tried everything at the stores to rid ourselves of german roaches, but to no avail. That is, until we tried your Dupont Advion roach gel bait. It worked the very first night and now, a week later, I just put it out on occasion to maintain the "no roach policy" around here. Thank you DoMyOwnPestControl. Your products really work and I'm going to give you a lot of good free advertisement!

The Professionmal's Choice
By H.zunena in Charleston, SC on 05/18/2013
I have worked as a professional Pest Elimination Officer for 18 years. I now work as the PCO for a large school district. I try to never, ever use harmful chemicals. Sprays and foggers will not kill the cockroaches ... it just scatters them. Advion works, period. You can get better results if you remember that this is food to them. Do not spray while baiting or get any household cleaners on the bait. If you have been applying chemicals for a long time and put this on top of a chemical laced crack they will be slow to take it, and may not, if the chemical corrupts the bait. I've used many, many products. I've had people that were stunned that I could fix cockroach infestations that no one else was able to. But remember that the first two approached to ANY pest elimination is sanitation and structural. That means clean it up and repair it. The idea is prevention. Hope this helps

NO MORE ROACHES
By Joe in Washington, DC on 02/09/2013
I was at the end of my rope. I had a case of cockroaches in my old house that changed the way I looked at life. They would crawl over you when you slept at night, they completely take over the kitchen and bathroom at night, come out at the dinner table when we ate, making it impossible to invite people to your home for the embarrassment you would feel. I tried store bought insecticides until the home was unlivable because of fumes, but still no change in the amount of roaches. I was thinking of selling the house and moving. In desperation I tried ADVION GEL, and to my surprise, almost overnight, they (the roaches) were gone!!! It was miraculous, the way it wiped out a problem that I honestly thought was too severe to ever change. I cannot put into words the gratitude I feel for the people who made this stuff.

I last posted on 12/17 about using this product
By Lms in Wilmington on 05/31/2012
I just want to say this much - it's now been over 5 months and I haven't seen ANY cockroaches. I don't even see droppings. I have a few of those sticky roach motels - I checked them last week - EMPTY. This stuff is the miracle I needed. Five months later I have a home I love and a kitchen where I love to cook. I never worry about company visiting and seeing one of these bugs scatter in view because there are no bugs. This stuff is real and it works.

By Mike in Gaithersburg, MD on 05/11/2012
I purchased this product after many hours researching the web for roach killers. Foggers didn't work at all. In fact, I think the roaches were laughing at me after attempting to kill them with a fogger. The only thing that would work was the normal bug spray, but that only killed those that I saw, not all the rest in hiding. So I got this in the mail, and the first day I did a test run, using only one tube in my kitchen. The directions said to make sure the kitchen is clean and no water or crumbs are around, but I wanted to see just how good this was, so I left a few dishes in the sink, and crumbs on the counter. I placed bait all around the kitchen, in cracks on the wall, behind the fridge, under the dishwasher and microwave. Many places that I had seen roaches before. Then we left the house for the day to let the bait do its work. On the way home, I told my wife I don't expect to see any results, since nothing had worked so far. I was shocked by what I saw in the kitchen. There dead/near dead roaches all over the floor, ranging in size. Apparently I had a bigger roach problem then I thought. But that wasn't the end of it. With one tube used, and nothing more, we saw dead roaches on the floor for about a week later! So here I am, writing this review, and placing an order for another pack of this stuff! Once it arrives, I am going to place it all over the house, to hopefully be rid of these damn things!! Thank you VERY much for this great product! And to anyone reading this, do yourself a favor and get it, you will NOT be disappointed!!!

We have had a roach problem big time for years. And I do mean years; whatever we tried didn't make any difference. My husband came across this product and tried it. Within 1 month all roaches were gone. I could not believe it. I do mean gone! It has been a year and we still do not have a problem. We have perhaps seen one or two and have put out a little more whenever that happens. We are totally pleased with this product.

By Dave in NYC, NY on 06/25/2010
This product is the best on the market! We use this product and we are able to eliminate roaches from apartments after 1-5 applications depending on the level of severity. Don't listen to pest control companies and their sales spell about spray. They are only there to make money and not get rid of the roaches. What is their financial incentive to get rid of the roaches? Their strategy is to kill a few with a knock down Pyrethrin based ingredient and they want you to quickly sign their invoice. They're laughing all the way to the bank. Don't listen to their nonsense, make them use the Advion.

Advion roach bait gel great new product by Dupon
By Norman in Miami, florida on 06/12/2010
This product surpasses by far other roach gels on the market. Only minutes after drops of this product were utilized roaches were observed eating it. The small needle type applicator is excellent in order to get behind kitchen furniture and/or crevices. Within less than 24 hours you will start seeing the results. This stuff is like chocolate for german roaches.

By Dude in NJ on 05/16/2009
This stuff is potent. When we first moved into our new pad it was like a roach parade day and night. The exterminator comes every week and makes no difference. It's a ground level garden apartment which we love... but ants from one end, roaches from the other, then the spiders that eat them and the stuff that eats them and the spiders. So, get rid of the first two and the others go away. We began a regimen of baiting with Advion Roach Bait Gel, sealing off entry points, and spraying Permethrin and IGR in select areas. DeltaGard G granules were sprinkled around outdoor areas. We're continuing to use this gel but adding different gel baits into the mix to prevent "bait-aversion". The parades stopped. As each summer passes, we see them less and less. You can't eradicate them, but you can seriously knock them down and/or send them elsewhere. I can't help but wonder if the entire building is seeing less of them. This stuff, the IGR, and the sealing are probably the most important parts of the regimen. The residuals are for some areas outside the apartment which need some quick knockdown, like the garbage area and laundry room. We've had to use the residuals and granules less and less, I believe because of the baits and IGR.

QHow often do you put Advion Roach Bait Gel out. For instance, every 30 days or every 90 days?
AYou should place Advion Roach Bait Gel out as often as needed. You should only apply roach gel out if you have a problem. If you do not have a problem, you should not place roach gel out as it is a food that will attract roaches, you do not want to attract a problem if you don't have one. If you do have a current roach issue, you should apply as often as you need to. In bad infestations, you may need to apply weekly if the roaches are eating it that fast.
QHow do you know when a bait is not working ?
I purchased/applied Advion Roach Bait Gel bait about a week ago, and I'm not seeing any roaches that are attracted to it. I have smokey Brown Nymphs and i tried hand feeding one and it just wanted nothing to do with it. one thing I think I've done wrong is contaminated my baits with Talstar pro. so I've placed the baits where i have not sprayed. Ive just ordered the Maxforce FC Magnum in hopes that they will like that. Nymphs are supposed to eat this/ be attracted to baits when younger right ? Ive also purchased a birth inhibitor which i plan on mixing with my Talstar but I'm afraid of contaminating my baits again. any help would be appreciated. i just cant seem to get rid of these nymphs and i know the big boy stage is on its way.
ARoaches will always ignore baits that have been contaminated with insecticides, perfumes or even cigarette smoke so it is important to keep the bait away from these contaminants. Roach bait gel should be placed in small dabs directly into cracks and crevices in cabinets, drawers, around sinks, counter tops, in food cabinets and any other area where you are seeing activity. Talstar + Gentrol on the other hand should only be sprayed around door frames, window frames and directly into cracks and crevices around baseboards and in cracks and crevices around utilities (cables, pipes, wires) that enter through the wall. Never apply the products in the same exact area. It is also important to make sure the kitchen and surrounding areas are spotless each day while you are trying to eliminate the roaches. Leave no crumbs or dishes in the sink at night, take out trash every night, and make sure all counter tops are wiped down thoroughly. One week is not enough time to determine if a roach bait gel is working. You need to give a bait severeal weeks to see if you notice a difference in a roach population. Heavy infestations can take several months to get rid of no matter what products you use.

QIs the Advion Roach Bait Gel still working when it dries up?
I noticed that the gel dries up after 2-3 days, and gets hard. Is it still going to work?
AThe gel will work even after it hardens though it does work best when it is soft. The gel will dry out quickly if you place it on a porous surface or if you place it in an area where it is exposed to air currents (heating or cooling vents). You can help avoid these situations by placing the Advion Roach Bait Gel in disposable bait plate stations. Bait Plate Stations are low-profile, economic and easy-to-use plastic stations that hold gel, liquid and granular baits for ants, roaches and other crawling insects.
QWhat would happen to the cat if they ingest Advion Roach Bait Gel?
I have a cat at home, and I saw in one of the questions that the gel should not be place where a cat might reach it. So I am wondering how sensitive is this potential hazard to pets.
A "Potential Health Effects You should still read and follow the product label which recommends that you use the roach bait gel in places that will be inaccessible to your pet.
Based on animal testing, no biologically significant effects are expected from skin or eye contact or by ingestion."

QIs it normal for some roaches not to eat Advion Roach Bait Gel?
So I put down the product on a Friday night. I was told to clean the kitchen and leave no food or water. I did as told. And as a result it seemed to work perfectly. I've seen dead roaches for the past few days. But it hasn't been a week and I've noticed some roaches won't eat it anymore. Mainly some of the baby ones. Is it normal? I have not been mixing any other products.
A Yes, it is normal for some roaches to not go directly to a†bait such as Advion Roach Bait Gel†and eat it. It can often be that they are feeding on some that has been brought back to the colony already, feeding on the feces of the adults, or feeding on other dead roaches. They also could be looking for water or other materials and not currently foraging for the bait. Depending on the size of the colony, it can take at least several weeks to a month or so to eliminate the entire population. If you have used the same bait for several months, than we would recommend rotating with a different bait to prevent bait aversion. Good rotation choices would include Maxforce FC Magnum or Maxforce Impact Roach Bait Gel.

QWhat if my dog eats a cockroach that has ingested the Advion Roach Bait Gel?
A There is no need to worry about any type of issues from your dog eating roaches that have been in contact with Advion Roach Bait Gel. There is only enough insecticide in these products to kill a roach, not enough to have any effect on a mammal.

QI bought Advion when I started seeing small roaches in my kitchen, now that I use it, I'm starting to see few
AIt is common to see an increase in the number of roaches as they are attracted to the Advion Roach Bait Gel. Please use once every two weeks (cleaning up old bait placements). Here is a helpful article for treating roaches- Roach Control Article.

QRed Label vs. Blue Label
I have never before purchased this product but heard amazing reviews about it. In my research, there is a harsh review claiming your product Advion Cockroach Gel Bait is ineffective since switching company's. It is a red label (old version) vs. blue label (new version). Can you tell me what the changes were to the product? Why would some claim the old version works and the new version doesn't. I really need a reliable product and have no money to waste on purchasing several products. Can you help with this question? My questions are in respect of your company. Thank you.
AAdvion Roach Bait Gel was previously packaged in red by the previous manufacturer. The product was purchased by Syngenta and they began to package it in blue/green. The product is the same and has the same formulation and effectiveness. Nothing has changed to the product itself only the packaging material. Please let us know if you need anything else.

QShould I apply Advion ?
I got a mild infestation (2-4 roaches seen a day) that I treated with boric acid. After a week a stopped seeing roaches (german). I am thinking, as a preventive measure (to complement boric acid) to apply Advion on some strategic locations at my kitchen. Is that my assumption correct ? or the fact that I don't see any more of this animals means that they've gone for good ?
AYes, I would recommend using the Advion Gel Bait in areas where roaches tend to congregate or hide. Use Advion Roach Bait Gel indoors as a crack and crevice treatment to control even the toughest of infestations. Advion cockroach gel should be applied to areas frequented by cockroaches such as between different elements of construction, between equipment and floors, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, and behind and under appliances, cabinets, sinks, closets, and any other equipment that cockroaches are typically known to hide. Advion cockroach bait gel is excellent for German roaches as they are the most common indoor infesting roach. Advion roach bait gel should be used in conjunction with Insect Growth Regulators, such as Gentrol Point Source Stations, for even more complete control of all life stages of cockroaches. For light to moderate infestations of cockroaches, apply 1-3 spots of Advion cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet. Each spot of Advion gel bait should equal about 0.5 grams (approx. 1/4” diameter)

QIs Advion Roach Bait Gel harmful to cats?
06/18/2013 K from Dallas Tx
QI was told Advion Roach Bait Gel will make roaches breed more..is that true?
I was told this product will make roaches breed more..is that true?
AThat is completely untrue. Advion Roach Bait Gel contains indoxacarb which when picked up by the roach is then transferred back to the other roaches wherever they may be producing a domino killing effect.
04/03/2013 Chase from Tallahassee, Florida
QAfter we use the Advion Roach Gel in our kitchen, how long before we can put our dishes back?
We put the roach gel in our cabinets, drawers, pretty much everywhere the video said to. When can we put down contact paper and put our dishes back? Will roaches get into our dishes if we do?
AYou do not have to keep your dishes out of the cabinets at all. The roach gel is not airborne so will not contaminate your dishes. We do not recommend putting down the contact paper if it will make the roach gel inaccessible to the roaches. The contact paper can be put into place after the infestation is gone. The roaches can get on your dishes as the gel will not control where they walk.
QDoes it matter which breed of roach is causing trouble, or is the Advion Roach designed to destroy them all?
A It is always better to know exactly what you are dealing with, however the Advion Roach Gel is labeled for use on all roaches. That being said, it is really good for German Roaches which are the most common indoor infesting roaches, but it may not be the best thing for other types like American roaches that come from outside.
