I'm having a problem with German cockroaches in a restaurant I’ve serviced since April 2014. It’s in a shopping plaza connected to a nail salon, bakery and another restaurant (I haven't talked to any of them yet). It’s not a dirty restaurant although they do have table legs, pipes behind the cookline and a grease trap that could be cleaned. The restaurant was fumigated for termites about six...

Blankety blank® used to work very well on German cockroaches. This is no longer the case. The majority of roaches that are sprayed are slowed down but there is very little long-term control. Did they change the formula?

I live in an apartment with three apartments around me. I have German cockroaches. I applied gel bait and they went away for a while but then came back. As much as I keep the home clean, we still get them. I do believe that it is due to my neighbors being dirty. Can I keep them out of my home for good or for longer than two months?

We have not been successful at eliminating roaches with fogging and residual spraying, even with large-scale prep and treating adjacent units. What is your take on baiting programs and what can you recommend that has been tried and is successful?

The direction of the roaches is coming from the outside. It’s alm...

I have a two-story commercial building that keeps having an American roach problem. I found a drain on the first floor that was open, so I asked them to cap it. It seemed to help, but the problem persists. I have sprayed with Suspend and baited with Larva-Lur, which also has helped, but I still seem to have a lot of roaches in my glue traps. Every time I go to retreat on a monthly basis, th...

I actually have two questions. First, I have been working on a renovated home that has a German roach infestation. What is the quickest way to get a control of the matter? There is no food for them, but they will not go away.
Second, I have a home that I have been treating that is getting wood roaches (American roaches) in their attic. I started to treat in there and now they are comin...

Upon inspecting a school cafeteria, I located a major infestation of American roaches down one floor drain, but they were using adjoining lines to other floor drains as a highway. There was plenty of food build up in the drains and we cleaned out what we had access to. I felt they needed some type of chemical treatment besides drain cleaner. Due to the location and that the floor is washed o...
