How often do I need to re-apply the Maxforce Pro Roach Bait gel?

I live in an apartment. I use stuff from the market, and it stops them for few weeks but they start coming back again. How long will one application work?

Answer:

The Maxforce Pro Roach Bait Gel will stay effective for several weeks after it is applied. It will not prevent new roaches from moving in, it will only kill the roaches as they happen to eat it. We recommend that you use caulk or other suitable material to close any crack, crevice or gap around baseboards, pipes, wires, cables, cabinets, vents, door frames, window frames and any other place where insects could enter. This will help stop the roaches from moving from adjoining apartments through the walls and into your apartment. In addition, you should spray around the perimeter of each room with a good insecticide such as Demon WP and you should use an insect growth regulator (Gentrol) to control the breeding cycle of the roaches that have already entered your apartment. We do have a roach control kit that contains all of the products you need to get rid of the roaches you have now and help keep them gone, the Roach Control Kit 2.
