Advion Cockroach Bait Station Review
There are many types of cockroach baits and killers but it’s frustrating how a lot of them don’t actually work. The Advion Cockroach Bait Station is unique because it attracts the roaches in one location that serves as an arena where it would not just kill a number of roaches but would control the roach populations indoor and outdoor. Let’s look at some of its features.
The active ingredient in this cockroach bait, Indoxacarb, is an insecticide that works through ingestion. It’s a high performing gel-like substance made by DuPont that targets all prevailing species of cockroaches. It can kill German roaches and brown-banded roaches among others. This substance is highly attractive to roaches and is non-repellent.
Different houses or even commercial spaces tend to attract different types of roaches so this is a great product if you don’t know particularly what type of roaches you are dealing with.
Slow-Acting but Effective
This bait may not work instantaneously like sprays but it has a powerful effect on the colonies. Sprays work faster but only kills the roaches that you come across with. The indoxocarb in this bait station acts slowly so that it allows enough time for the roaches to infect the others. The slow-acting ingredient is transferred throughout the colony when the roaches interact and indirectly through feeding on poisoned carcasses. This is how it kills multiple roaches without you doing anything more.
The bag includes 60 counts of cockroach bait stations and each of them lasts for a significant amount of time. Advion cockroach bait stations placed outdoors would take up to 3 months before they need replacing, and longer for indoors.
It’s easy to use. Place 3 – 10 bait stations per area, depending on the size and make sure that they are centrally located. These are places where the roaches would usually pass like island sinks, cabinets, and near appliances.
Safe and Odor-Free
The Advion Cockroach Bait Station leaves no residue so you don’t have to worry about kids or pets ingesting the substance. But it’s important not to expose them directly to the baits. It leaves no odor unlike insect sprays.
