Cheryl from Brooklyn, Ny writes,

Will this product work on huge roaches and waterbugs? How about centipedes and millipedes?

I see perhaps 2 huge roaches per year in my apartment. They're like mutant ninja wonder roaches. They fly, swim, and run like lightning. They terrify me! Today, I saw a very young one, which means it came from a litter, and there are likely more hiding out in my house. I want ALL of them dead and gone! I also see centipedes and millipedes a few times annually. Lastly, I'm thinking about getting a little lapdog. Will this bait harm my new pet?


Yes, the products in the New York Roach Control Kit will work for roaches. Make sure you put the bait gel, Maxforce FC Magnum, in places where you cannot spray, such as in cabinets, drawers, on counters, etc. You will mix the Fenvastar EcoCap and Gentrol IGR together and spray in a pump sprayer. You will mix 1 fl. oz. of both products with a gallon of water. This will be sprayed around the baseboards and cracks and crevices indoors. It can be used outdoors as well. The Gentrol IGR will stop the roaches from reproducing for 4 months. Fenvastar EcoCap is labeled for use on centipedes and millipedes as well. We would not recommend spraying this product when animals are in the room. Once the product is dry, it would be safe for the dog to return. The bait gel will be safe because it is in places the dog cannot reach.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
