Can Maxforce Impact Roach Gel Bait be used outside?

I've recently moved into a home that had a large roach problem. I've treated the entire inside with CY Kick. The outside with CY Kick, Demon WP, Talstar, then again with CY Kick at 3-4 week intervals. I'm still getting roaches, minimal, but still there. Can I use this product outside, in the desert landscape area around the house to bait the roaches away from the house? I'm mostly seeing German by the bathroom. They appear to be entering from the garage and driveway where it is full concrete/hard scape. Glue boards in the garage catch lizards, which only hurt my roach control.


Maxforce Impact Roach Gel Bait can be used outdoors. However, you do run the risk of it being contaminated easily due to outdoor elements. We would recommend using it indoors in places where the roaches are seen. You should also mix Cy-Kick, Demon WP or Talstar with an IGR (insect growth regulator) to stop the roaches from reproducing. Gentrol is a very good product and will work for up to 4 months. It is not necessary to use more than one product. You do not want to roaches to become immune to the products.
