Can I use Phantom to spray in kitchen cupboards and along baseboards to control cockroaches?

If I can't use Phantom, could you please recommend a spray that I could use in the kitchen?

Answer:

We do not recommend that you spray anything in your cupboards because of the risk of contaminating your food or dishes. Instead, you should use a roach bait gel such as Advion Roach Bait Gel. The roaches will consume this bait and spread the bait to other roaches that are hidden in inaccessible areas and wipe out the population. Apply the bait into cracks and crevices in drawers, cupboards and around the counter. For easier clean up, you can also place the bait onto sticky notes and when you are done with the baiting you simply peel the sticky note off of the surface and dispose of it.  You can use Phantom in the cracks and crevices around the baseboards in the kitchen with no problem. We also recommend you add Gentrol insect growth regulator to the Phantom. Gentrol contains a synthetic roach juvenile growth hormone that disrupts the growth of the roaches and prevents them from reaching sexual maturity therefore preventing mating.
