How can I get rid of my roaches?

I bought Talstar and have been using it for 2 weeks. The roaches are getting worse instead of better. I also used Invict Gold bait. What am I doing wrong?


While Talstar will kill roaches that come in contact with it, it will not stop the problem. Make sure you are not baiting where you have sprayed. Also, be sure that you are only applying little green pea size dabs of bait and re baiting once a week. We would also recommend to include Gentol IGR Point Source. Gentrol Point Source is a special Roach control device that contains the Gentrol Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) hydroprene for 90-day control of roaches and other stored product pests. Activating Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic, adhesive-back device. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper. From there, it moves up to 75 square feet, damaging adult roaches and preventing them from reproducing.
