I was taught to use Timbor for roach and German roach control, any guarantee that it works for these pests?
No. Timbor is not labeled for roach control and would not be the best choice for this type of application. If you have a current infestation of roaches we recommend the products that come in our Roach Kit #2. The products in the Roach Control Kit #2 are perfect for most roach control problems in most indoor settings. This professional kit includes Demon WP Insecticide for spraying the outside perimeter of the home and inside underneath appliances, behind cabinets, under toilets and sinks, etc. Advion Roach Bait Gel--one of the best roach baits on the market. Advion can be applied up high in the kitchen in the corner of cabinets and in cracks and crevices in kitchens and bathrooms. The 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. Finally, Gentrol Point Source stations provide an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) that will stop roaches from laying eggs, helping to halt the infestation. The combination of an IGR with roach bait is a highly effective roach control strategy that is widely used by pest control professionals.
