    German Coffee

    I have several coffee shop accounts and some have German cockroaches inside the coffee machines that are coming from other food stores. I have applied Maxforce gel with hydramethylnon, Maxforce Impact and Advion cockroach gel and the problem continues.

    Brown-Bandeds Go Everywhere

    I have an apartment with German cockroaches that I’ve treated many times where sanitation is not a problem. When I check back, she tells me she is seeing them in the living room and bedrooms. I have left sticky traps to monitor and only ever have evidence that they are in the kitchen. Finally, the other day I saw one running the walls in the living room. I am using Maxforce and Arilon. I'm ...

    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...

    Failure to Find

    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?

    More Than Nosey Neighbors

    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?
