Avoiding Over-reliance, Chemical Resistance and Bait Aversion

Avoiding Over-reliance, Chemical Resistance and Bait Aversion

 

This may all seem like a lot of necessary technical information but it might be something that you here you pest control professional use when he refers to controlling cockroaches.  Cockroach bait is designed to have unique attributes that make it effective.  When you are looking to choice a specific roach gel bait, think about this, they all have strengths and limitations.

Using the same product over and over again and expecting that is works exactly the same year at to year, might leave you a little disappointed.  Some times you need to choose products for spot treatments, void treatments, and or crack and crevice treatments, they are not all created equal.

Because it has been shown that cockroaches can demonstrate bait aversion, and chemical resistance, it is necessary to think about a smart solution for cockroach control.

There are 3 categories to think about Baits, Contact Insecticides, and Residual Insecticides.    All three of these applications can have just an important role as the other, and they all serve a purpose.  I try to help customers understand that it is not one or the other but usually all through is the problem is big enough.

Baits are very popular and are easy to apply to cracks with little or no effort and this is great for the Diy’ er and homeowner.  But there can be an issue with some strains of roaches showing an aversion for some of the bait matrix and so it Is not a bad idea to rotate you baits every 3 to 6 months to keep them coming.

There are 2 excellent cockroach gel bait from BASF, Advance cockroach gel bait and Alpine Cockroach gel bait, all part of the Prescriptive Treatment Brand.  Each of these roach gel baits have their own formulation matrix and they have both been proven to be attractive to even German Cockroach strains that are associated with feeding aversion.

Advance Cockroach gel

The active ingredient is Dinotefuran, and is the same in both the Advance Cockroach gel bait and the Alpine Cockroach gel bait, but the food matrix that carries the active ingredient is different.    Also Dinotefuran has been granted the Reduced Risk status status by the EPA for public health use.  And Alpine cockroach gel bait is also free of any of the Big 8 allergens in its matrix which is extremely important for sensitive areas.
