I have been using Demon WP and now it's not effective on roaches. What do I need to switch to?


Demon WP contains one of the most effective active ingredients for roach control, and it should work just fine for most roach infestations. If you have a current infestation however, insecticide sprays alone may not be enough. It is recommended that you use an IGR such as Gentrol to help halt the breeding process and a roach bait such as Advion Roach Bait Gel to help eliminate the roaches in places that cannot be sprayed. We have both of these products available in a our Roach Control Kit #1. If you want to try a different spray insecticide, Phantom would be a good choice. Phantom is an insecticide that kills cockroaches (and many other pests) through a powerful non-repellent, transferable active ingredient. Pests cant even detect Phantom, so they walk right over it and then spread it to other insects hidden behind walls or in their home colony, killing other pests they come in contact with. The one draw back to Phantom is that pests can take around a week to die after coming into contact with treated surfaces.

Sanitation also plays a key role in roach infestations. Even the best products on the market cannot over come poor sanitation. Please read the following article to learn some hints and tips on sanitation : Cockroach Quick Tips
