Pest Control Methods To Eliminate Cockroaches

Gel Bait

Gel baits can be an effective method of cockroach control. This is why pest control professionals frequently employ them. These gels contain various insecticides and are packaged in a convenient syringe. Small amounts of the gel can be applied with this syringe anywhere roaches hide in your home, such as cracks and crevices. The roaches will consume the gel bait and die shortly after that.

Gel bait can effectively eliminate cockroach populations across multiple generations when used in co

Cockroaches are known to resist tent fumigation, so their effectiveness against them may be limited. Roaches can quickly multiply, even if only a few individuals survive. You’ll be back at the beginning before you know it!

Caulk All Entry Points

Roach control methods like glue strips and bait stations are only useful if no new roaches enter the home. Remember, use caulk to seal any gaps or potential entry points. Look for gaps between the walls or tile, worn-out weather stripping, and gaps in door and window seals.

Other Substances To Eliminate Cockroaches

Boric Acid

Boric acid is a commonly used roach control chemical. It is frequently used as dust scattered around the house and puffed into cracks and crevices where cockroaches hide. Roaches crawl over these surfaces and become coated in the powder. They will consume it while grooming their legs and antennae. Because boric acid is effective almost indefinitely as long as it is kept dry, it is an excellent long-term roach control solution.


Indoxacarb is a highly effective cockroach eradication insecticide. It is frequently used in gel baits, and your pest control professional may also use indoxacarb to exterminate your roaches. Roaches are poisoned by indoxacarb when they come into contact with the waste and corpses of other infested insects. As a result, this insecticide is highly effective, killing up to three generations of cockroaches.


Because it has no effect until it is ingested, hydramethylnon is frequently used in roach bait. It kills the cockroach by interfering with the pest’s metabolic processes and energy production.
