What do u think is most effective product for german roaches?

We have ordered before both times diff products both did ok but took quite awhile to work we r still seeing some in kitchen


When treating for roaches in general, it is always good to switch the products that you are using so that the roaches do not become immune to them. Maxforce Magnum is a very good bait gel. It is more a knockdown that the roaches ingest. We would also recommend using an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Gentrol IGR or Gentrol Point Sources. You will mix the Gentrol IGR in a gallon of water and spray around the baseboards and cracks and crevices in your home. This will last about 4 months indoors. If you are wanting to use an insecticide spray as well, Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide is a very good product. This will be sprayed around the baseboards and cracks and crevices also. This will last about 90 days indoors. Phantom and Gentrol IGR can be mixed together in the same sprayer. Another thing to remember is to NOT spray where you are putting the bait gel. It will contaminate it and the roaches will NOT eat it.
