Combat Roach Gel Kills Cockroaches

Like most apartment dwellers, I get the occasional visits from roaches. After a couple of weeks of trying ineffective do-it-yourself measures like keeping things extra clean and plugging up any possible entrances, I decided to invest in a tube of roach gel.

After Googling around for the best way to kill roaches, I found explaining the Combat Roach Killing Gel that comes in a syringe is the best at dealing with the pests. How does the gel work? Roaches eat the gel and then retreat back to their nest where they die and other roaches eat the poisoned carcasses, thus eliminating the nest.

The best place to get this stuff is at Walgreens but since there are no Walgreens within a reasonable distance from my apartment, I had to order it online and wait for the mailman to bring it to my door.

I applied it to as many cracks and crevices in the kitchen before my week-long Montana vacation. Since I got back, I haven’t seen a single roach. They used to come out and scurry at night, but now they seem to be non-existent.

The only cons of the gel is it is a dark brown color (which looks like poo) which can clash with your room and it can be a little messy when applying. But aside from that, this stuff is well worth the price of $5.99 per tube which should be enough for a three bedroom apartment.

So forget the sprays, powders, and traps, Combat Roach Gel is all you need.

  1. I have not used the gel with pets in our home. Combat has a page addressing pet issues


  2. So when they feast they die right cuz i just seen like 6 feasting


  3. We have, evidently a minor infestation. Less than a handful of droppings here and there. We would empty drawers and would find a handful of droppings in one or two the next day.

    Our pest control guy said it was minor, and sprayed, but the spray affected me and we didn’t want a repeat. I ordered Combat Gel from Amazon. Husband put some out. The next day, near the Combat, was a dead roach. That’s 3 killed (2 were killed by husband) and 2 others that were found dead. We will use the drawers to monitor–if there’s droppings, they’re still here.

    Either way, husband will put out Combat Gel from now on.


  4. Once you notice there are no more roaches, do you need to continue use and if so how after or only use it when you actually have an active issue?
