Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait has been called one of the most attractive and economical baits on the market today. Avert Dry Flowable bait with .05% Abamectin readily attracts and controls both bait-averse and non-bait averse cockroaches. Since it is a dry powder, it will not dry out like gel baits. In fact, Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait is guaranteed effective up to one year, making it a great economical choice. The powder formula can also be easily applied deep into cracks, crevices, and wall voids where other gels and baits don’t reach. The closer you can put the bait to where cockroaches live and breed, the more likely they are to consume it. Avert Dry Flowable is intended for application with the supplied hand duster to hiding and runway areas and those places where pests are found. Apply insecticide directly into cracks and crevices. Apply lightly and uniformly to infested areas. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices; service ducts; false floors and ceilings; wall voids; around electrical and telephone fittings and equipment; around water and sewer pipes; under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks; around window and door frames; and in attics and crawl spaces. The amount to be applied will vary with the site. For light infestations, a minimum of 4 - 6 bait points is recommended per 100 sq. feet of treatment area. For heavy infestations, a minimum of 12 - 24 bait points is recommended per 100 sq. feet of treatment area. Avert Dry Flowable clings to roach bodies when they walk through it. The powder is later ingested when the roaches preen themselves. Abamectin B1 interferes with the insect's nerve impulses and begins affecting cockroach populations within 24 hours. This type of insecticide allows the cockroach time to return to the colony, where the insecticide can be passed to other cockroaches, which minimizes reproduction and ultimately reduces and controls the population. 30 gram tube.

Step-by-Step Dry Flowable Application Instructions:
· Follow the instructions (found in the plastic bag) for inserting the plastic extension tube into the Avert Dry Flowable hand duster.
· Let the hand duster lie across your fingers with your palm facing upward. Place your thumb in the middle of the tube or over the “R” in Avert. While holding the hand duster parallel to the floor and pointed away from you, begin to lightly shake the tube.
· Continue to shake the tube between each “puff” to keep the powder in an airborne state.
· For your first application, give the tube a few quick shakes, then a light but firm press of the thumb.
· As the tube of Avert Dry Flowable starts to empty, you will gradually begin tilting it more and more downward. By following the shaking technique and the “parallel-to-gradual-tilting” of tube technique, you will be using Avert Dry Flowable at its peak efficiency.

Without a doubt the finest roach inhibitor available. Works in small, hard to get areas and, when used in conjunction with "Avert" liquid, rids the area completely regardless of the degree of infestation.

Averted most of the roaches!!!
By Venetia on September 2, 2010
It is wonderful to be able to walk into the kitchen and not start chasing roaches with my fly swatter. The very next day I could see a big difference. They are mostly all gone now but I am going to bait them again to be sure. Wonderful stuff, this Avert!

WOW!!! I cannot say enough about this product or this site. Product received just a couple of days after order placed. One tube was more than enough to treat my 4 bedroom, 2 bath home. I tried so many different products before: foggers, sprays, some gel stuff that turned a weird color and was hard to remove later, concentrated powder you mix that was supposed to be "professional strength". None of them combined has worked as well as the Avert did to get rid of German roaches and even a few of the large tree roaches! The next day after treatment I started seeing dead roaches, and each day since I have found more dead ones. I have seen less and less live activity and what little I've seen appears to be coming from areas I didn't treat initially (the attic and the garage area). It took a little practice to figure out how to get the powder to come out, but it was so easy to squeeze/blow into the tiniest cracks. Such a relief to finally find something that actually WORKS! I spent so much money on cheaper products, wish I had found out about this first! Plus, the DoMyOwnPestControl.com site was easy to find the information I needed, easy to place the order, and I received it quickly. Highly recommend!!!

I tried this product after using a spray Raid product for a number of weeks with little result. The Avert Dry Flowable product has given me wonderful results with only a rare appearance of a cockroach since I first used it. The demonstration video that I found on the Net was also most helpful in showing correct application and location.

in just two weeks no roaches
By Steve on January 25, 2013
This product is defintely easy to use in cracks and crevices. Only complaint and why I didn't give five stars is because of needle like attachment got moisture in it so did clog. But was able to continune to apply with normal applicator that is on tube. I like the fact that this bait can be effective for up to 2 years. I also did use gels in other parts of house. But to get deep to roaches hidden areas with long time control this is the product. I hoping with the use IGR that used with phantom that I was able to finish the job. So far so good. No roaches seen in one week. I plan to spray again in 2 weeks since I live in apartment.
By Frew on December 15, 2012
We have been fighting roaches for more than a year and used different pest control chemicals but all of them were a waste of money and time. Finally, I started searching for something different and came across a youtube video about Avert. Then I bought it from this website and the result was UNBELIEVABLE. Without a doubt Avert is the finest roach inhibitor available. It is the best for hard to get areas like the back a refrigerator, oven and microwave where they hatch their egg. Within three days our apartment is free of roaches and we can put anything without worry of roaches.

THIS STUFF WORKS!!!
By Rachel on December 3, 2012
This stuff works. Lost our house and due to now bad credit had to move into a crappy old apartment building. Turns out it had cockroaches and the Orkin guy that they have on contract is a joke. Being an old apartment builidng not sure how bad the infestation was. In the matter of sheer numbers, would only see maybe a couple at a time, but would also see them during the day which is a sign of a bad infestation. Also they were not treating the other apartments because no one fessed up to having them. Total BS. Anway, tried some gel baits from Home Depot and home remedies found on google. Was only seeing one or two a week by that time, but could not live with the fact that they were still there. After hours of internet research over several weeks, finally came across Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait. Just sorry this treatment didn't pop up in my google results at the beginning! Great price and it arrived a day ahead of schedule. I used this in every conceivable crack or whole in this crappy apartment. I had seem them coming out of the molding in my sons bedroom as well as the door frames of the laundry room and bathroom in addition to the obvious spots in the kitchen. It comes with a little straw (think DW-40) and you just squeeze it in all the cracks and crevices. I took off every outlet cover and stuck it way in the wall and sprayed there. That was 2 1/2 weeks ago and I have not seen a cockroach dead or alive since!! Thank you AVERT! The product is supposed to be effective up to a year or more.
AVERT DRY FLOWABLE COCKROACH BAIT
By Thong on November 22, 2012
A very good product to get rid of roaches. I have used this product the last 5 years.
By Lisa on November 12, 2012
I've worked in pest control, which taught me two things: German roaches avoid baits and are especially sensitive to powder application methods. I was skeptical but the Avert container made it easy to dispense and the powder flowed nicely without clogging. I had die-off overnight and continue to see dead roaches - adult and juvenile. Extremely impressed. If you apply as directed (a light, uniform dusting in hidden spaces), I think you, too, will have fantastic results.

Part of a 1-2-3 Punch!
By Allen on September 15, 2012
Excellent for control and eradication of roaches! We use in rental properties that become infested, and have 100% success if used in combination with glue traps and Gentrol spray! Have used the bait alone before, and not as effective. Worth the extra expense of the full 1-2-3 punch!!

QIs Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait just a bait product or does it kill the roaches?
AAvert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait is both a roach bait product and an insecticide. Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait contains food based ingredients to attract the roaches and entice them to feed. It also contains the active ingredient, Abamectin, which will kill the roach that consumes the bait and other roaches that come into contact with the roach that consumed the bait.
May 19, 2011Tammy asked:
QCan you mix Avert powder with Gentrol Concentrate together?
ANo. Avert Dry Flowable cockroach bait cannot be mixed with Gentrol IGR concentrate. These two products have two very different formulations and they are not made to be mixed together. To make the application easier for your self you can choose to use Gentrol Point Source instead of the concentrate. Using Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic, adhesive-back device, no mixing or spraying required. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper. From there, it moves up to 75 square feet, that way roaches never need to come in contact with the device.
