I am trying to get rid of roaches.
I keep in tight containers, keep kitchen and bathroom clean, take out trash everyday but still seem to have a present in both area what else can I do? Frustrated
We would recommend using a variety of products to combat the roaches. Maxforce FC Magnum is a very good bait gel to use. You will put the gel in small place points in problem areas, such as around stove, microwave, counters, drawers, etc. You should also use Temprid SC insecticide. You will use 8 mL per gallon of water. This will be sprayed along the baseboards and cracks and crevices indoors and around the perimeter of the home. We would also recommend mixing Temprid SC with an IGR, such as Gentrol. This will stop the roaches from reproducing. For longer control, we would recommend using Delta Dust Insecticide inside the wall voids with a bulb duster. You will take the light plates and electrical sockets off the wall and do a couple of puffs per hole.
You will make sure that you are not spraying in places where the bait is. It will contaminate the bait and the roaches will not be attracted to it.
All of these things will help to contain the roaches and eliminate them. This is not an instant process but the combination of these products should definitely take care of your roach problem.
