I live in Las Vegas where 2" cockroaches are a problem. I used to pay $60 a month for an exterminator and that pretty much eliminated them. But that's $760 a year!
When I moved, I needed a cheaper alternative. MUCH cheaper. I bought 16 of these for under $20 delivered. Pretty cheap. When I went in the yard at night I would usually see 40-50 cockroaches outside. 5-6 in the house downstairs and 1-2 upstairs. I opened one trap up and left it outside along with a standard closed trap. The cockroaches were ripping off pieces of this poison candy and running to their nests with it.
Next night I saw only 3 cockroaches outside, 1 downstairs and 0 upstairs. In one night the usual cockroach count went from 60+ to only 4!! The next day I saw only two outside and 0 in the house.
I bought 16 of these traps but I would say two of them killed all the roaches outside in a day.
These traps were so effective that it makes the exterminator business look like a scam. $20-$40 vs $720 for a cockroach free year. I spent over $4,000 on exterminators throughout the years and could have spent under $100. Wow! ShamWoW!!
