To kill the nest

Gels contain more liquid compared to solid baits.

Roach baits and ant baits usually refer to solid insecticide bait products that are food and insecticide combinations that attract pests, and are sold in prefilled plastic bait stations. However, a bait can come in many forms, including solids, granules, gels, or liquids, and can be applied in a variety of ways. Roach killing gel and ant killing gel contain more water than do solid baits, so they are generally more attractive to insects. Gels are a type of bait that is usually applied using a syringe or similar device allowing targeted application in hard to reach places such as cracks and crevices where insects hide. Roach killing gel and ant killing gel are the preferred form used by professionals.

Placement Tips for Combat Baits & Gels:

  1. Combat Baits: Place bait stations in areas that ants and roaches come across often like under sinks, behind toilets, or behind appliances. These bait stations kill in a domino-effect, starting by infecting the ant or roach that comes into contact with the bait. The bait kills via contact or ingestion, and allows the ant or roach to carry the poison back to their nest to die.
  2. Combat Gels: Place gels in cracks and crevices both inside and outside your home - where ants and roaches are most likely to enter the home.
