Gerardo from Los Angeles, Ca writes,

Large Roaches in attic what to use?

Large roaches about 1" in length show up in my home's attic and sometimes on the second floor in various rooms. I have recently minimized any water from the attic Air Conditioning unit's condensation by wrapping pipes with insulation. My home is located in Los Angeles, CA, where summers result in very hot attic temperatures. What else can I do, and what is the best product to kill these large roaches?


Sounds like you are off to a great start! If you are having a problem with roaches (water bugs), you should look at treating more than just the attic, especially since the roaches are coming in from the outside. We would highly suggest you look at getting one of our Roach Control Kits for indoor and home perimeter use, and a granular insecticide for long term control in the yard around the home to cut down on the numbers in your area. The Roach Kits provide you with all the products you need to effectively and efficiently get rid of the infestation at its source rather than just where you see them, and by purchasing them in our kit rather than separately you save money as we have discounted these items. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
