Does Hot Shot roach and gel bait work?

I have a severe roach problem, just needing to know if the Hot Shot brands work as well as others. I have the other stuff for yard and crawl spaces.

Answer:

We are not familiar with consumer brands such as a Hot Shot, and since we do not sell them or deal with them in any way we do not have any feed back on how well they work. We only sell professional pest control products. If you have a current infestation of roaches we recommend the products that come in our Roach Kit #2. The products in the Roach Control Kit #2 are perfect for roach control problems in apartments. This professional kit includes Demon WP Insecticide for spraying the outside perimeter of the home and inside underneath appliances, behind cabinets, under toilets and sinks, etc.  Advion Roach Bait Gel is one of the best roach baits on the market. Advion can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The bait contains a slow-acting poison that attracts and kills feeding roaches, who also spread the bait to other roaches by contact or by sharing food. Finally,  Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals.
