I’ve got roaches running around in my kitchen and I want to get rid of them for good. Should I use the gel or the spray? I’ve read your article so it looks like the gel would be easier but spraying seems to work faster. What do you suggest?
We always suggest using the ROACH GEL when you are living in the home which is being treated. The gel is so much easier to use and does not require exact or precise applications in order to get good results. As explained in our ROACH CONTROL ARTICLE, you really only need to get the product applied where you see the roaches. They’ll quickly find it, feed and die. Unlike sprays which require that you get it where the roaches are nesting, the gel will work as long as you make placements close to the nest but on or in it. Roaches can nest and hide in remote locations and if you’re not dealing with them day in and day out, trying to get control using sprays and dusts can be frustrating. This is not the case with the gel. All you need to do is get it close to where they live and you’ll impact them dramatically. If you have further questions, please give us a call at 1-800-877-7290.
