    As a long-term solution, we recommend Avert Flowable bait. It is extremely durable and can be used for many years. It can also be used as bait or tracker.

    Pest control experts instal bait in various corners of your home to control cockroaches. The bait can be in any form – solid, liquid or gel. Cockroaches that feed on the bait die after some time.
