A cockroach invasion may seem like a daunting situation. Plus, with multiple solutions to choose from, it can be hard for you to determine how to act. Since the size and location of the infestation can vary, so can the best solution. Here at Terro®, we want to help you choose the best product for roach control in your situation.
Baits are a great tool to use to help get a handle on your indoor cockroach problem. Working to attract the roaches, and then eliminating them with an active ingredient, baiting aims to get rid of the insects with minimal effort on your part. Placing baits near entry points, on the floors, near the baseboards of the home, and any other spaces where cockroaches can crawl under or in can help eliminate them.
Roaches will approach the bait and consume it or gather some of the bait and share it. Bait aims to eliminate the individual insect that consumes the bait, but also to lead the other roaches to the baiting station.
The Terro® Roach and Ant Bait Station lure roaches in with a protein paste. As the bait station works to lure the roaches to the paste, the active ingredient in the past works to eliminate the population. With the TERRO® Roach Bait Powder Plus Applicator, you can use the bait indoors and outdoors. Place the bait directly in small cracks and crevices with the applicator tool to reach those places that roaches hide.
TERRO® Roach Bait Gel easily attracts and kills roaches with a ready-to-use bottle that features an adjustable flow nozzle. Easy to apply use this gel in cracks and crevices around windows and doors, under appliances, in crawl spaces. This solution is ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, garages, and other indoor spaces. Inspect the area where you’ve placed the bait frequently and reapply as needed.
When baiting roaches, be patient. It might seem like there are more roaches than when you first started, but this means that the lure is working! The more that the roaches consume the bait and the poison, the higher chance of eliminating the infestation.
Roach Sprays & Roach Insect Killer
When it comes to protecting your house from more than one thing, insect sprays can start working instantly and efficiently around the perimeter of your home. Sprays can get into the hard-to-reach crevices around doors and windows, and even under appliances.
Sprays are also a great way to prevent roaches from entering your home in the first place. By creating a barrier around the perimeter of your home and the other potential entry points, you can stop them before they make a nest in your house.
Most sprays have active ingredients that kill insects like cockroaches on contact. Terro® Home Pest Control is a long-lasting formula that you can spray around your home that will last up to 12 months. Odorless, non-staining, and leaving no residue, this spray can be a perfect solution for inside and outside your house.
TERRO® Ant & Roach Killer Spray kills ants and roaches on contact with residual killing power that can last up to 3 months. Spray along ant trails, near entry points, around baseboards, in crawl spaces, and other common pest areas. You can use this water-based spray formula as a broad application or crack-and-crevice treatment both indoor and outdoors.
Trashcans are a hotspot for many insects, and cockroaches are no exception. It’s a great place to find foot after all, plus it makes a good hiding spot. Control these creepy crawlers by using Terro® Garbage Guard® Trash Can Insect Killer. The pod can be attached inside the lid of your trashcan where its deep-penetrating vapors act fast to kill insects and prevent new infestations. For long lasting protection for up to 4 months, you can be sure that your trash isn’t a home for insects!
Cockroach traps can be used to remove the roaches from your property instantly and ensure that they aren’t going to find the way back into your space. Traps can be placed discreetly anywhere. Pantries, under appliances, in bathrooms, and other places that are highly attractive for these bugs are great areas to place traps.
Traps like the Terro® Roach Magnet® Trap attract roaches with pheromone technology that lures the insects in. Once inside the trap, the sticky surface keeps them in place so they cannot escape, and so you can easily discard them. Because you’re trapping the roaches and ensuring that they aren’t getting away, traps can bring peace of mind to your space.
