We are currently servicing a commercial kitchen and the German cockroaches there seem to be getting worse. Our approach so far has been to use a non-repellent spray along with cockroach bait that includes an IGR. We have had success with this in the past but it isn't working in this account.
The customer is having the kitchen cleaned often, but they have on occasion used repellent products...

We have a very stubborn customer that tells us she sees dead American cockroaches all over the place and wants us to come back and retreat. We have retreated twice and she still sees dead roaches. My thinking is that they are dead and what more can we do? They are getting in somewhere, running into our product and dying. She screams at us and tells us that we’re not doing our job. I tried t...

What is the absolute best insecticide for German cockroaches in restaurants? We are using an esfenvalerate product and are probably going to switch to a non-repellent product. Is this a good call or are there better products for German cockroaches? We also bait with cockroach gel.

I am dealing with a German roach issue in an apartment complex broken into buildings. The maintenance people seem to think it's okay to leave whole panels out under kitchen and bathroom sinks for access to the plumbing. One building has at least 12 units with roaches. I've tried everything from baiting, dusting, baiting and dusting, to recently hitting all of the penetrations with a knockdow...

I have a 90-foot boat with either immature American or Oriental cockroaches. We cannot agree on the identification in my office, but feel both species would be living in the bilges versus German cockroaches that would be in the living space. My question is which is better? Applying a residual, IGR and pyrethrum together with our B&G portable aerosol system or spraying where we can reach wit...

Is there a product with quick knockdown for German cockroaches that can be used in commercial kitchens? I have some clients where the infestation is persistently overwhelming. The other half of my clients where I used the same products have complete elimination. Some of the common denominators are old buildings and aluminum paneling. Sanitation is not too bad, but trying to get the night cl...

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. I am thinking of applying diatomaceous earth or an aerosol like CB-80 after asking for some good cleaning to reduce the food and water sources...

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 ...

We have a 20-story condo building on the ocean. It has seven towers with two units on each floor. Each unit has a trash chute in the kitchen running to a trash room in the ground level of the parking garage (seven trash rooms total). American cockroaches are the reason we were hired and we’re having trouble getting a handle on them. They must wash down the trash rooms several times a week. ...

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?
