Tiny Tiny Baby Cockroaches?
Posted 28 May 2012 - 05:14 PM
The last week everytime I open one of our cupboards there have been 5-10 dead baby cockraoches. I'm assuming they're roaches. They really are small - about 5mm
Now it's giving me the eebie jeebies just thinking about it.
I'm worried that there's a nest somewhere - where are they all coming from?!?! I must have cleared up 50 from that cupboard now.
There have been the odd couple in other cupboards, but this one (that has the cereal in it) is rife!
Shall I get the pest control over again?
We've just moved from Dubai where we lived in a villa - and I've never seen this before!!

How it works as explained in the box is the cockroach will take a bite of the gel then share with other cockroaches, then they will all die.

You can get some pretty good containers at the dollar stores (Daiso?) so you don't break the bank stocking up on containers. It is really a very effective way of bug controla and is very tidy in general.
As others have suggested, call your pest control company for a return visit. If you can stand it, save the dead bugs to show them the severity of the problem.

Gel treatment didn't work for us twice by professionals then we use the spray one and now it's more then 2 years without cockroaches .
I have not used my gel yet... but gee... it's double the price of baygon and raid... and you say it is not effective.. :-( hope this good bye brand works for us.

It's the baby roaches that are of more cncern than big ones, as they are obviously breeding.
As others have said, i have found buying a can of spray and the gel and doing it myself to be more effective.
Good luck and welcome to Abu dhabi.

Cooking utensils I use to keep in drawers but now stand them in a stainless steel container (from Ikea) and cover with cling wrap at night- in this house, I don't have that problem but still keep stuff in containers, excepting the utensils which I can now hang on wall without worrying about any roaches.

Tonight after work I shall mostly be buying containers to keep all my food in and buying the gel too!
We've got pest control coming back as well
