Effective Roach Control Tip Effective Roach Control Tips
The natural behavior of roaches is to create huge nesting sites. Of course, depending on the species of cockroaches, the nest will be located inside the structure or outside the structure. They also reproduce at an alarming rate which means that unless the nest is directly treated early on, it is almost impossible to eradicate a roach infestation from the source. This is will prove to be a huge nuisance, particularly for roach species that nest indoors. Normally, roaches will travel alone to forage for food, however, that does not mean that they are recluse insects. This is typically why using baits as a method of roach control will prove to be extremely effective because they will share the poison with the rest of the colony rather than die on contact.

Roach baits can also be placed in more intimate areas of a residential home like in the medicine cabinet or vanity. They can also be placed in, under, and behind bathroom fixtures like bathroom lights or pull out mirrors.

Importance of Cockroach Gel Baits

For many methods of insect control, including cockroach control, sanitation may be the best way to prevent an infestation from occurring. Although sanitation is one of the key methods of control, baiting is crucial for a cockroach infestation. When using baits in the correct target areas, cockroach populations will begin to decrease dramatically and will eventually be eradicated. This is because cockroaches will bring back the poison to their colony and share the roach bait. Therefore, ultimately, you are eliminating the roach infestation from the source rather than contact killing the ones that you see.

Different Formulations of Roach Bait

Pest Mall provides all the same grade products that professional pest control management companies will use but only charge for the products and not the service fees. This will ultimately mean that it is much less expensive than hiring a professional. Many professionals understand that using different types of products for different target areas will prove to be more effective when trying to gain a complete control for cockroaches. That is exactly why our technicians at Pest Mall do not provide just one type of bait, but we offer a variety of different formulations of roach bait so that you can select the ones that will best fit the type of infestation that you are experiencing.

  • Gel Roach Bait: Gel roach baits are the most popular form of cockroach bait that many people will use. Gel baits can be placed in a variety of areas like under the sinks, under cabinets and drawers, on the top of doors and mirrors, and in various cracks and crevices.
  • Roach Bait Stations: Roach bait stations are the same type of gel baits but is in a hardened form and built into tamper free plastic bait stations. Bait stations are good for areas that are vulnerable to frequent contact. They can be placed in various areas like in closets, on counter tops, against the walls, on the floor in corners, and etc.
  • Granular and Fine Granular Roach Bait: Granular roach baits and fine granular roach baits are a dry form of bait that can be used both outdoors and indoors. They are the same components are far as poisons and active ingredients. The main difference is the size of the granule. Granules of the granular bait are bigger in size compared to the almost dust-like fine granular baits. They can be placed on bait trays and placed in areas like under the sink, behind and under appliances, on top of cabinets and in the wall void.

Where to Use Roach Bait

Roach bait is an effective method of roach control because baits can be used both indoor and outdoor. There are some target areas that homeowners or business owners should focus on when applying roach baits.

In the kitchen, there are a variety of areas that a person can apply the gel bait. These areas include places like behind kitchen cabinets, on top of counters, and in the corners under the sink and on the underside of cabinets. Also, do not forget to apply baits to areas like behind, next to, and under kitchen appliances like the stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and etc. Keep in mind that you are not applying baits INSIDE appliance materials where it can come in contact with food but just around the appliance.

Baits can also be applied in living or common areas. The target areas where baits should be applied are behind materials that hang on the wall such as picture frames, hanging clocks and posters. Also, apply baits in cracks and crevices around shelves or wood materials as well as places like fixtures on the wall and molding near the base board area or close to the ceiling. Also, consider applying baits around pipes that lead inside the structure or on cords and cables that will come out of the wall.

Moreover, baits can be applied in storage compartments or materials. Many roaches will enter a structure because they are carried in from boxes. Apply roach baits near stacks of stored paper bags and boxes.

How to Effectively Use Roach Baits

Roach baits should not be used in the same areas where liquid sprays have already been applied. This is because for cockroaches, many of the liquid sprays will act as a repellant and will repel the cockroaches from the baits. Therefore, this will ultimately make the baits completely ineffective. Here is a rule of thumb when treating for cockroaches: Keep liquid sprays low to the ground like near the base board area, under door frames, beneath appliances like stoves, fridges, washer, and drier, and etc. and keep bait poisons up high, near the top. This will prevent the two from interfering with each other and will ultimately increase effectiveness of both products. Reapply baits every month to two months or reapply the baits when the supply seems inefficient. For gel baits, only .5g (about the size of a pea) should be applied every 1ft to 1 ½ feet apart. Bait stations should be placed every 1ft. to 2ft. apart.

Q. best roach gel
do you have any of the alpine? what is the best that you can use for roaches? I have stuff for ants. But being in the country we need to treat for roaches before they become a problem
A.   Alpine can also be found on our main site but we not have a listing on eBay. Neither product is better than the other in effectiveness but they work a little bit differently since the Avert is a dry flowable (almost like a dust) and the Alpine is a gel bait. Other popular products for roaches include Dupont Advion Gel Bait and Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Gel Bait. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. professional roach bait
I would like to stock up on some Maxforce roach bait gel, but keep in mind that I do not have roaches and live in an apartment building (thus the concern!). If I leave the tube in my cabinet, unopened, will that attract roaches? If I one day open the product but do not use all of it, how should I store it so it doesn't attract more roaches?
A.   oring it unopened will not attract roaches. The gel baits have a application tip and a stopping tip. Do not dispose the stopping tip when you replace it with the application tip to apply the gel. Leave the plunger in place and keep the entire syringe in an airtight sealed bag. Keep in mind that the shelf life of gel baits are less than one year and so you will have to apply the gel bait accordingly.

Q. House infestation- what to do first, inside or outside?
A.   There may not be a significant difference whether you treat the inside first or outside first. But treating both areas would definitely help regardless of initiating treatment from the outside in or inside out.

Q. What is the best product to get rid of roches?
A.  

The best method of treatment for roaches will depend on the species of roach.

If you are finding small brown roaches, mostly in your kitchen or bathroom area; chances are you are infested with German Roaches.

For german roach treatment, the best method is to use a type of bait gel such as Advion Roach Bait Gel.

However if it is large roaches about 1 1/2 long; chances are you are infested with American roaches.

Treatment for American roaches or any other big roaches we usually recommend that you use a liquid concentrated insecticide and spray along the outer premises of your home as well as crack and crevice treatment indoors.

Q. best way to kill cockroaches
I'm not sure where MaxForce can be purchased within Canada, so I was looking to purchase some bait gel and stations online to keep stock. I do not have roaches, but do live in an apartment complex. If I purchase bait gels and stations and leave them in the package, unopened, what is their shelf life? Also, roaches would not be attracted to unopened packages, correct? (I don't want to accidentally cause an infestation!) Also, as I live in Toronto, would shipping here be possible?
A.   Although we can normally ship roach bait gels and stations to anywhere else in Canada, Toronto is very strict with the items that can be shipped there and so we are unable to ship to Toronto. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

Q. What's the best bait station for German roaches?
I have a bad roach problem in my apartment. Since I have a pet and can't use any poisonous gels or powders, I need a good bait station product to get rid of all the roaches. I've used Combat Quick Kill and Source Kill, but they had no effect at all after 3 months.
A.   We recommend using Maxforce Roach Bait Stations or Advion Roach Bait Arenas. Also, even if you have pets, you can use gels under the sink, behind the toilet, behind or under appliances like the refrigerator and stove, and even in the laundry room behind or under the laundry machines. These are key areas for roaches to go and look for water or food and they are also out of reach from pets. We recommend Dupont Advion Roach Bait Gel or the Maxforce Magnum roach bait gel. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
