    hi,

    I use one spray called NO - P means no pests. This is very effective and has a perfume smell also. I normally spray that on the cockroach when i find them and they immediately die .Just spray them wherever you find them jus 2 r 3 tims you find them lying dead . Beware of your food and other eatables.

    regards,
    anandi

    Hi
    We had the same problem while staying in a flat in Hyderabad.None of the pesticides available in market was able to kill those creatures:rant
    Finally we called a Pest Control agent and they came and put some kind of ointment in every nook and corner of the house.And you wont believe, by end of day we would have atleast got 2KGs of dead cockroaches!!!:shock:
    So I suggest you to call some pest control for the same.

    Sprays are ineffective long term for cockroaches. Cockroaches live in colonies in hidden areas like walls and the spray will not reach the real problem. Two effective home remedies here in USA:

    you can get roach hotels at drugstores, walmart etc: these are plastic bait stations where the cockroach eats and goes back to die in the colony. Cockroaches then consume the cadaver and are again poisoned so it goes like that. They also have sets where additional stations have cockroach birth control baits.

    If you want to fumigate your place, you can get bombs in cans or also the kind its a can you drop in water and it makes smoke (those are really good) but you have to leave your place for hours, hide all food, etc etc....

    Try the bait stations first and see.

    put gamaxene powder under paper in kitchen shelves. dissolve the powder in water and pour it at night in kitchen sinks. keep the children away from the place.
