Will Roach Control Kit #2 work in an apartment?

I live an a multi-unit apartment building. The building is rather old, so there are plenty of places roaches hide. Will this work even if my neighbors are not treating their units? Will I have to fend off their roaches, if I've killed my own? Note, I've already tried to seal off every crevice with silicone caulking, and I still see many of them, but fewer of the really big ones and an overall reduction by about 30%. However, I think the roaches are coming back, since I'm not treating with anything other than glue traps.


Yes, the Roach Control Kit #2 will do a great job eliminating roaches in your apartment. You may also consider using an insecticide dust such as MotherEarth Dust in cracks, crevices and wall voids to help get rid of invading roaches from neighboring units. Unfortunately because you share walls with units that are not being treated your chances for a reinfestation is quite high. It is important to make sure your sanitation is superior so that roaches are not attracted to your apartment and caulking all the cracks and crevices you could will also be helpful.
