Help! I am being over run with german roaches from a neighbor that lives only 15 ft away.
I been using Demand CS for almost 3 weeks around all cabinets and baseboards inside as well as the foundation, windows and doors outside. I just started using MaxForce baits today inside my home. What should I do about the yard and crawl space as I have found alive and dead ones in both places..... are granules a option? Please tell me what I need to do to get rid of these nasty things!!
We think you could benefit from using the MaxForce roach bait gel and an insect growth regulator in addition to the Demand CS that has been applied. MaxForce 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. It should be applied to areas frequented by cockroaches such as between different elements of construction, between equipment and floors, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, and behind and under appliances, cabinets, sinks, closets, and any other equipment that cockroaches are typically known to hide. Do not use residual insecticides in the same areas as the gel placements. Plus, 20 Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. Place the GENTROL POINT SOURCE devices in areas where roach activity has been observed. These areas include: in and around cabinets, closets, pantries, drawers, refuse areas, electrical boxes, equipment, and false ceilings. Also, place around doors, expansion joints, pipe chases, dressers, windows, heating and air conditioning ducts, refrigerators, and voids where pests are active.
The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals.
