Roach Trap and Bait Placement Guide

In order to eliminate cockroaches, one should begin with a trapping program, which quickly removes large numbers of roaches. Trapping is the most accurate method to determine cockroach locations, concentrations, and population size; after doing so, it eliminates them completely. The traps will also help determine the best locations for bait-station placement. For most effective control, place all bait-stations at once. Replace Bait stations every 3 to 4 months for continuous protection against roaches.

Using the illustrations:  
  • Place traps where roaches are seen or suspected.
  • Place traps behind refrigerator, stove, in cabinets, pantry, along baseboards, counter, and underneath kitchen and bathroom sinks.
  • Place traps along vertical surfaces, with both openings clear so that roaches can enter from both sides of the trap.
  • Check traps 2 to 4 days after installation:
  • Move traps that haven't caught roaches to areas where roaches are being caught.
  • Discard traps that are full and replace them with new ones

  • Open plastic pouch, remove bait stations and break apart from plastic frame.
  • Using illustrations below, place bait stations where roaches have been seen.
  • Bait stations may be left on a flat surface or attached to a vertical surface using the two-sided tape that is provided.
  • Do not place bait stations in Traps or near flames!
  • Adjust bait station placement 2 to 4 days after infestation.
  • Move bait stations to areas where traps are catching roaches.
