Q&A Home

Mike from Queens New York writes,

I live in basement apartment which has "water bugs"(large) roaches

Exterminators have come and sprayed, but this was ineffective. Most recent exterminator visit he used a roach bait, which seemed to work pretty well. I do have 2 young children visiting me 2x a week, so I heed a bait which is safe, and approved for use in New York.


We would recommend using Maxforce FC Magnum. It is a very good bait gel that can be placed in cabinets, drawers, counters, etc. We would also recommend an IGR (insect growth regulator). This stops roaches from reproducing. The Gentrol Point Sources can be placed around the apartment in various places. They last for up to 3 months. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
