Go online, buy Advion gel bait. Roaches build resistance so whatever worked 5 years ago is not that good today. Advion is good today. Now, place little amounts (size of a dime or less) on metal hinges inside cabinets. Nowhere else...just on metal hinges up and down. Too much bait is waste since water in bait makes it work and water...evaporates so you only have bait working for you for 3-4 days so using a lot is a waste of bait as roaches are not elephants. Under sinks where pipes come out of walls...bait there. Repeat under bathroom sink as roaches NEED water so they'll be in kithcen and bathroom. now, if you have them in living room or're infested!. Repeat treatment in 2 weeks. Never spray any chemicals while using bait-remember, you deal with smart bastards who will be spooked by your chemicals and won't get near your bait for a week...then will hit your kitchen again! Chemicals pushes them into walls and bait is on metal get the idea, right? You want them to come and they will, tonight as long as no chemical is being used. Repeat again in the third week for bad infestation. If you live in apartment buildings seal the hell out of all pipes as roaches travel by pipes. If you live in single-family homes check out the might need to bait, lightly, there too since your weather permits them to stay there as well. If the roaches are those big ones buy granules as well. Advion is perfect for the kitchen roaches/german and granules are perfect for big ones/american. American roaches love sewers/high humidity areas so apply granules there but watch for stupid dogs ready to lick it all...Send me an e-mail at and let me know how you're doing and don't worry about's anti-roach products are amazing only if we take the time and use them right.
