Gel for Cockroaches

Gel baits are available with a variety of active ingredients, several of which can work on cockroaches. The cockroaches consume the bait and are killed by the active ingredient. However, cockroaches can be finicky when it comes to baits and have demonstrated an aversion to particular baits. Often, the result is that the roaches do not consume the bait and are not controlled. Gel baits also dry out in time and become unattractive to the cockroaches.

Due to these challenges, contacting a pest control professional is advised before attempting to bait. Pest control professionals are knowledgeable about cockroach biology and habits as well as baiting strategies. Along with baits, they also have many techniques they can implement to resolve the infestation.
