There are many control strategies available to help solve cockroach problems. Cockroach control requires more than just insecticides. You will be most successful if you use a combination of methods.For a big problem of infestation, try using gel, spray (judiciously), and sticky traps all at once. A great product that is relatively new on the market is roach killing gel. Combat is one company that makes this product. The gel comes in a syringe-like tube and can be applied in out of the way places. The roaches are strongly attracted to it and it works well. |
Sprays come in different forms and strengths. Bombs are one of the easier methods to fight cockroaches, but they don't totally eliminate a bad infestation. In fact, sometimes a bomb just seems to make the roaches mad. Try repeating the procedure several times if this is the method you prefer. Be aware that everything in the house will be covered with toxins and clean well before letting children and pets back in the house.
A strong spray can be used judiciously along with roach killing gel for great results.
Be careful not to spray in the location where you placed the bait, because they won't eat the bait if it's been sprayed with poison. Spray is best used in places like under the refrigerator, behind the stove, and on visible nests. Keep the kids out while spraying and for an hour after, and clean any living areas where spray may have fallen.
If cockroaches are already in the home, then it is possible to use several methods to eliminate them. The first task is to cut off the food and water supply. Repair leaky drains and faucets, so the roaches cannot make use of dripping water. Store food items in sealed containers before placing them in the pantry. Never leave food out overnight, as this is an open invitation for the roaches to feed.
It is a good idea to proactively do everything possible to limit the opportunities for cockroaches to enter the home in the first place. This means taking steps to secure the building by closing off small ports of entry. Caulk and weather-strip around all windows and doors, as this will help seal the tiny cracks where the roaches could enter. In like manner, seal the areas around water pipes, both inside and outside the building. By limiting easy access to the home, the task of effective cockroach control is made much simpler.
