I began having roaches when I moved and had a huge dumpster across the fence from my place. I had a pest control company spray and got rid of them but can’t afford the monthly treatments. They are using permethrin now around the outside. Is this a good permanent treatment? If I spray inside and around the dumpster is there any chance of killing them without bringing them back to my property?
PERMETHRIN would not be a good choice for any species of roach – especially german roaches. They’re just too strong and too resistant to most pyrethroids and since Permethrin has been around forever, its simply not an effective active to use. I’ve seen roaches avoid areas where permethrin is used so in the end, it will many times make problems worse.
The best option is our BITHOR. Its odorless, long lasting and features a “dual action” that’s very effective.
When applied, it will provide a quick kill and get them moving around. This leads to a quick kill. But then that one active breaks down and essentially disappears after a few days and the second active kicks in which is super stealthy. Because its undetectable by roaches (and other insects), they’re readily move over it, pick up a lethal dose and die.
The following “short video” (less than 60 seconds long) summarizes why Bithor is so good for use in and around homes.
Bithor uses a relatively new chemical design incorporating two actives, both very effective, that work together.
Initially its a quick killer, at least for the first couple of days. But then when the second active kicks in, it will take 2-3 days to effect roaches but this is by design. Because Bithor can be transferred from one pest to another, insects like roaches will cross contaminate many other roaches in the days following their exposure because they typically nest, roost and live in communities with many other roaches. This makes Phantom extra effective compared to more traditional concentrates.
In fact, using Bithor on and around the dumpster as well as spot treating areas between this location and your residence, you should be able to keep them out of your home for sure.
