Katrina from Sioux City, Ia writes,

Will spraying ExciteR and Onslaught work alone to kill roaches?

I live in a duplex and when my neighbors moved in they brought roaches with them and waited almost a year to do anything about it. The roaches are now in my apartment, my landlord has hired an exterminator who is spraying ExciteR and Onslaught every two weeks. I don't think they are using an IGR in the mix, and they aren't using a bait. The roaches in my apartment seem to be getting worse not better. So my real question is if I get some gel bait and an IGR would that help to kill the roaches in my apartment and the ones downstairs in the neighbors apartment? Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.


We definitely think you will benefit from adding a roach bait  and and insect growth regulator to your roach control program. Our Roach Control Kit #1 contains both of the products you will need to achieve better roach control in your apartment. We also recommend trying seal as many cracks and crevices as possible around the perimeter of each room to help stop having roaches move from one apartment to another.
