Choosing the Best Roach Killer Product Based on Where Roaches Hide

Spray insecticides kill on contact - which makes them seem like they work pretty well. You feel like you’re getting somewhere when you can see disgusting pests writhing in a puddle of noxious poison. While it’s satisfying to catch a few roaches out in the open, unfortunately there’s still a whole colony with hundreds more cockroaches waiting to invade your house. What you need is a roach killer product that targets bugs where they live and breed - in their nest. And that’s exactly what makes Combat Baits, Gels and Roach Killing Bait Strips purge bugs and eliminate your pest infestation.

Roaches live in dark humid places close to sources of food and water. Kitchens and bathrooms are prime roach nesting areas, typically nesting in cracks and crevices. When food, water and shelter are readily available, the roach population multiplies rapidly. Then, what happens is that cockroaches become a chronic problem. They’ll travel from one dwelling to another when the population gets too large, when there is improved sanitation or the use of insecticides. They are also easily transported in boxes, bags and furniture from infested places to new dwellings.

All of this is what makes targeting the source of the infestation so vital to eliminating cockroaches completely. To target their source effectively, Combat is formulated with carbohydrate-rich attractants that cockroaches find irresistible. Cockroaches searching for food and water ingest Combat and bring it back to the nest where their sputum, feces and carcasses spread the poison - wiping out the entire cockroach infestation in a sweeping domino-like effect.

Combat baits are easy to use, mess-free and need no activation. Simply place a bait station down where you’ve seen roaches and the bait will continuously target the source of the problem day and night. Placing baits in multiple locations simultaneously is critical and can accelerate overall control.

Combat Gel is ideal for difficult-to-reach areas in and around your home. With its form-fitting properties, you can squeeze it into small, narrow openings such as cracks and crevices that cockroaches use to nest in or gain entry into the house. You can also use Combat gel around the openings where pipes enter the home from the outside.

Combat Roach Killing Bait Strips have an adhesive backing that makes them easy to place out of sight and out of reach of children and pets. Bait strips are easy to apply, and there’s no mess to clean when you’re done. Simply break strips apart, peel adhesive backing away, stick in the desired location, and peel off the protective film on top of the strip – activating the strip. Combat Roach Killing Bait Strips are perfect for attaching to the underside of garbage can lids, the underside of above-sink cabinets, under shelves, along window seals and anyplace where discretion is desired.
