German cockroaches are one of the worst roach infestation type that you may experience. With their re-productivity and ability to live in harsh conditions, it is tough to get rid of German cockroaches unless you don’t have the right German cockroach killer.
We have advised about the success of Advion roach bait gel on many cockroach species before. Unfortunately, gel baits are not hundred percent effective on German cockroaches. Some colonies are gel averse cockroaches and they do not feed on gel baits. At this point, the very best roach killer is Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait.
Once applied properly, there will be an immediate interest and German cockroaches will start to feed like crazy. At this point, the effectiveness of Avert will prove itself with 3 ways:
- As a highly attractive bait which is readily fed upon, both gel-averse and non-gel-averse cockroaches will consume it instantly and will die soon.
- It will cling to cockroach bodies, antennas, legs when they walk through the powder bait and will be ingested once the roaches preen themselves.
- When cockroaches consume Avert and go back to their nests, they will produce fecal matters and these fecal materials will contain a small amount of Avert in it. When the nymph cockroaches feed on these fecal matters they will also be killed by this way.
As you can see, Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait is a highly effective cockroach killer bait that hits them in their nests. Avert contains Abamectin as active ingredient, which begins effecting the population almost within 24 hours. Within this period, cockroaches interacted with the powder bait return to their colonies and start passing the insecticide to the other roaches. By this way, the reproduction is minimized at the same time.
It remains effective for more than a year after initial treatment. As a result, you don’t have to re-treat the areas on a regular basis like many other roach killer on the market. Since it is like a powder it does not dry out like gel baits, which makes it attractive for a longer period than gels.
