One of the most basic methods of insect control in the pest control management industry is liquid spray. Whether it is for prevention or elimination, almost every insect control program will include the use of a liquid spray. It is not different for cockroach control. Cockroach elimination can be difficult; however, with sprays that will create barriers and kill cockroaches on contact, killing cockroaches have never been easier. Moreover, Pest Mall provides all the leading roach insecticides in the industry. These are the same cockroach killers that professionals are using to spray your home. Now it is made available for you to use for prevention, elimination, and long term control.

Depending on the level of infestation, the roach insecticides must be re-applied every 3 to 4 months. Also, remember that roach insecticides are made of toxic chemicals. Read all product labels and MSDS labels before applying any insecticide. For most of the liquid sprays, once the product is dry, it is usually safe for contact. If you have any questions on what products are best fit for the infestation that you are experiencing, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-788-4142.

The Importance of Roach Insecticide

There are a variety of roach insecticides that are available for use against roaches. Residual sprays that are used to control roach infestations provide a complete control for a long period of time. The term “residual” in the pest control industry means that the insecticide still has a killing effect even after it has dried. This means that it can provide a control for up to 4 or even five months with just one application. Although many people are skeptical of using chemical based products to control a pest infestation, the roach insecticides that are made available by Pest Mall are safe when used appropriately and after the product label has been reviewed. Moreover, it is easy to use. The only real requirements or combining materials that are needed is a sprayer and water. Finally, liquid sprays can be sprayed both indoors and outdoors. This means that you can gain a complete control without worrying about new infestations entering your home or structure. Liquid sprays can be used for regular roach control maintenance or to kill an active roach infestation.

How to Effectively Apply Roach Insecticide

Keep in mind that there are several different formulations of roach insecticide that is available for use. Each type of formulation may not differ in efficacy; however, the residual time may vary slightly. Also, most liquid concentrate formulations will dry on clear, but such formulations like the wet-able powder will leave a visible residue. Some species of cockroaches nest indoors whereas other species nest outdoors and only come inside to forage for food or even as a wandering straggler. Usually, the species of cockroaches must be identified so that you know where the target areas of treatment are. However, whether it is outdoor control or indoor control, the dilution rates of the roach insecticide will be the same. Keep in mind that due to natural circumstances like weather breakdown and debris build up, the residual time of the insecticide that is applied outdoors will be shorter than the residual time of the insecticide that is applied in normal conditions. Each roach insecticide has a specified dilution rate that is labeled on the product label. Dilute the solutions accordingly in a gallon or 2 gallon sprayer.

Outdoor control will mainly consist of setting up a barrier treatment plan around the structure. Barrier treatments are bands of roach insecticide that goes up the wall of a structure from the base and goes out on the ground from the base of the structure. Typically, the insecticide bands are about 4 feet wide. Barrier treatments also focus on applying roach insecticide on target areas like around the window frame, around the doors, around various cracks and crevices on the structure, and etc.

Indoors, roach insecticide can be applied around the base boards of each room, underneath appliances like the stove, refrigerator, under and behind laundry machines, and etc. Keep in mind that if baits are also being used for indoor roach control, baits and sprays must be applied in separate areas. A rule of thumb to consider when using both roach insecticides and roach baits is that baits are kept up high and sprays are applied down low.

Q. Best method for killing Oriental Roaches that are outdoors
We see 1-2 roaches a night on our deck in the warmer months. I had 2 exterminators come out and after 1 told us that they were wood roaches another told us that they were oriental roaches. I am thinking they are oriental roaches because some things the first exterminator told us don't sound right. Either way - we have "outdoor" roaches nesting somewhere around our back deck. There is dirt/mud and straw that the builder left under our deck and I am thinking about treating that space under our deck. We also have 2 small dogs that love going/being outside and although they cannot get directly under the deck due to lattice, they are in the surrounding area on a regular basis. Knowing we have 2 dogs and want to treat under our deck where it is dark/wet would you recommend an insecticide spray solution or a granular solution (and I did already put some gel bait under our grill on a piece of cardboard)? Or would you recommend something completely different?
A.   You mentioned earlier of the straws that are underneath the deck that the builders left. The straws will keep moisture underneath the deck which will attract more insects in that area. If you can remove the straws from underneath your deck it will help you keep the insect population to a minimum in those areas. As far as application goes, you can use either the liquid or granular underneath the deck. Both products will reveal positive results in exterminating the roaches. Its hard for us to pin point which product will be best for your situation but I can help list some pros and cons for the two different applications. Hopefully this will allow you to narrow down your options and choose a treatment method which may work best for your surrounding area. First off, granular application may be easier to spread underneath the deck area. The moisture underneath the deck will also help the insecticide absorb into the ground. Liquid applications may be harder to reach certain areas or angles underneath the deck. However liquid can be easily applied to both horizontal and vertical areas (such as posts that help support and hold up the deck). For both the liquid and the granular products I would keep the pets out of the area for 24 hours which will provide more than enough dry time for the chemicals. You can use gel baits along with the contact insecticides, bug they will not last last long outdoors compared to the liquid or granular insecticides. I hope this helped... Good luck!

Q. which one to mix with disinfectant spray
I live in a building with a compactor chute. We throw our garbage down at the bottom we have an automatic disinfectant container and spray. I would like to know which roach spray is the best and can be mixed with this. We need something strong.
A.   Unfortunately, we do not carry any insecticides that are labeled to be mixed with a disinfectant. All of our roach killing insecticides must be diluted in water before application. Also, depending on the species, baiting may work better than sprays. If you are looking for an insecticide though, we recommend Suspend SC for a concentrate to spray. For baits, we recommend the Dupont Advion Roach Bait Gel.

Q. i sprayed my whole house with talsar pro will it get rid of my roaches
A.   Usually, indoor control for indoor German roaches requires much more spot treatment with a bait like Dupont Advion Roach Bait Gel than a broadcast treatment with a contact kill insecticide. The Talstar Pro will kill the roaches on contact; however, you may not be able to reach the nest with just a contact kill product. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.
