Is Green Dragon Roach Kill Bait the best product to use outside around our deck for roaches?

I have a wood deck about 18" off the ground - and it harbors a lot of roaches. I would like to use a product between the decking and in protected areas of the deck. Does this product hold up to some rainfall? Is there another product (ie. granular) that I could sweep between the deck boards that would have a better residual effect?


Bait gels like the Green Dragon Roach Bait Gel usually work best indoors because of the risk of melting in the sun or degrading with rainfall. For outdoor roach control, Maxforce granules would be a good choice. This product is labeled for roaches and can be used as a spot treatment, crack and crevice treatment or as a broadcast treatment outdoors.
