What is the best bait brand for Roaches?

I treat local stores in my area. For example Dunkin Donuts and average Pizza place etc. I have tried using Talstar 1 but does not seem to get rid of the roaches and i keep getting call backs. So i was wondering which gel bait would be the best to use for my situation. Thanks a lot for taking your time out and sparing your knowledge to me and others.

Answer:

We would recommend baiting very heavily using Maxforce FC Magnum roach gel.  Small dabs in a ton of places is the key.  In addition you should use Gentrol Point Source, which is an IGR which will prevent the roaches from maturing and reproducing which in turn will slow down the life cycle and the numbers of small roaches you are dealing with.  You should use both the gel and the gentrol point source in places off of the ground.  Around the floor area and underneath things you should apply Phantom liquid which is a non-repellent product that roaches can pick up when they walk over it and transfer it to other roaches in hiding areas that you cannot reach, like inside wall voids.  The use of these three key products should start to knock down large numbers of roaches unless there is some major sanitation issues that have not been corrected.  Obviously any food or water sources that are not cleaned up and taken care of will prolong the problem indefinitely.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.
