Will gel roach baits attract other roaches if i live in an apartment building?

We just moved to a new apartment and seen two German roaches. We had a professional come and spray and also sprayed an IGR, however, were not sure if the roaches were here or are coming from another apartment building. If we get the Maxforce FC gel, will this attract them if they are coming from another apartment and make the problem worse? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I have a 6 month old who will start crawling soon, and I am worried he can get sick from the roaches.


No, Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel will not attract more roaches to it from other apartments. If they are there, they will eat the bait gel and die. We would not recommend putting the bait gel in places where the professional sprayed because it will contaminate the baits, and the roaches will not eat it. It is recommended that you put the bait gel in the cabinets and drawers and basically places where you cannot spray. The gel will dry out and get a dry skin on top but roaches will still eat it up to a year.
