Advion® Cockroach Bait Arena
Cockroaches, specifically the Brown Banded, Asian, and German species.
Cockroach Arena Structure:
The structure itself is constructed out of plastic and has openings that lead the cockroaches to the alluring bait. The openings of the structure allow for very large and small cockroaches to enter.
The Advion Roach Bait Arena is a highly effective cockroach station that is already pre-filled with .07 oz of a potent, non-repellent bait. The active ingredient within this cockroach station is an insecticide called Indoxacarb. Upon ingesting, specific enzymes within the cockroach turn on the active ingredient causing it to be deadly. This bio-activation process is not as efficient within non-target pests. Once indoxacarb is "turned on" through enzymatic activity within the cockroach, it starts blocking the sodium channels in the insects nervous system. However, it doesn't kill the cockroach immediately, it allows the cockroach to return to its harborage where other adult and nymph cockroaches are and spread the active ingredient through droppings and ultimately its remains . This allows for multiple generations to be terminated. While you might not see cockroach carcasses around your home, that does not mean the product isn't working. Once the cockroach has ingested the bait, it will return to its harborage and help spread the active to other cockroaches.
Gear Needed: Wear disposable gloves when placing arenas and wash hands with soap and water once placed. Also have some type of adhesive readily available to help secure arenas.These can be used both indoors and outdoors. They should be placed in or near where cockroaches like to frequent. Quick Tip: Cockroaches love to frequent areas that provide any type of food and water. While they are not social insects they tend to commonly occur in groups. (Examples: kitchens and garages) You must use enough arenas to bait the cockroach population that you are dealing with. The recommended amount is to use 3-10 bait arenas per 100 linear feet of horizontal surface, primarily around all perimeters and other areas away from walls. Essentially an arena per every 12 inches.
Cockroaches frequent areas along walls or corners, appliances, industrial equipment, under sinks, cabinets, and utility areas. Key Places: underneath sink cabinets, cabinets, and even under the dishwasher, oven, and refrigerator. Use an adhesive to secure them to the floor wall, cabinet etc.
Remember to take note of where you've placed them (create a key) and return to the arenas to check and see how much of the bait has been depleted.
When placing them outdoors they need to placed adjacent to structures. Common places to place is against the house near a gutter, window seals, and doors. Again use adhesive to attach them to the house and keep a key of where you have placed them.
The active ingredient within the arena is good for up to 3 months; however, when using outdoors extreme elements can effect efficacy. If the product gets extremely warm or comes in contact with lots of water, it can decrease the overall effectiveness.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place inaccessible to children or pets.
