Cockroaches, specifically the Brown Banded, and German.
Cockroach Gel Bait:
Each carton contains 4 x 1.06 oz (30 Gram) non-refillable syringes. The gel has a yellow tint and you will be able to see where you place it.
The Optigard Cockroach Gel a is a highly palatable, non-repellent gel bait. The active ingredient within this cockroach gel bait is an insecticide called emamectin benzoate. Upon ingesting, it starts targeting both the nervous system and the muscular system in the cockroach, ultimately leading to death.
Where can the gel be used?
These can be used both indoors and outdoors as a cracks and crevice treatment within residential homes, industrial facilities, offices, warehouses, commercial kitchens, hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and other areas infested with cockroaches. Please check the label for the full listing of areas this can be administered.
Gear Needed : Wear disposable gloves when handling the syringes and wash hands with soap and water once finished using the product. If placing outdoors, you will need to purchase a tamper resistant refillable station.Cockroaches frequent along areas of construction and they love tight spots between equipment and floors. This gel can be used between hollow spaces in floors, around equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, behind and under appliances, spaces between the cabinets & floor, sinks, and much more. Do not apply this to surfaces that have already been sprayed with a residual product. Also, pick spots where pets and children cannot come in contact with the gel. When treating heavy infestations one may apply 2-4 spots to the above areas mentioned every 9 square feet. For a moderate infestation one may apply 1-2 spots per every 9 square feet. Each spot of gel bait should equal about .25- .5 grams of product - 1/8" in diameter. Once placed, inspect the area every few days to see if you need to reapply.
It is important to inspect areas around the home or structure where cockroaches might be able to enter. If identified use caulking or other measures to seal the structure. When placing the gel outdoors, put up to 1 tsp in a refillable bait station and place at entry sites along windows, doors, and between construction elements. Only 2 stations are necessary per side of a structure.
The active ingredient within the arena will start working within 24 hours and will maintain its gel like consistency for up to 3 months. However, when using outside if heat or water is introduced to the gel it can cause the gel to not work as its intended. It is important to rotate baits every 3 months since that is the typical life cycle of a cockroach.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place inaccessible to children or pets.
