What Is The Best Chemical To Spray To Control Roaches.?

Does anyone know what chemicals Orkin and Terminix use for roach control. I saw a roach (which usually means it is not alone) and want to spray but the pros want yearly contracts. I can just do it myself if I know what they use. If anyone is an expert on the matter, I would like to know what is the best chemical to use, that is still considered safe for indoors and in kitchen areas.

  1. i know of a remedy . if you can locate, in the pharmacy section, boric acid. it is an eye wash,in powder form you just sprinkle small amount of powder in behind light switches, plug in outlets , it will stick to the critters feet and back to the nest it goes and that is all there is to it. no more roaches. it has been many years since i used it , the trick these days is finding the boric acid in powder form. and since it is an eye wash it will be safe anywhere. good luck!

  2. I’m not sure what it is, I asked my Orkin man as he was working, he said that it’s not something that we can get over the counter… that the roach motels, and those type of things are for roaches that we don’t commonly have in our homes (what a rip off right?!) the sticky paper stuff that Orkin puts down when they spray is not the same as the ones in the store… Sorry, I know that’s not what you wanted to here, but that’s just what he told me 🙂
