On entering, they climb up the ramp onto the specially designed bridge treated with Entostat powder. The particles of Entostat cling to the cockroach feet and tarsal segments, preventing them from maintaining a strong grip and causing them to fall onto the glue board below from which they cannot escape.
Compared with smaller cardboard traps, the large and robust size of Exoroach (15" long x 8.5" wide x 2.5" tall) gives the ideal proportions to catch and retain a greater number of cockroaches between inspections. The Exoroach Cockroach Trap will provide many months of use if the glue boards, lure tablet and bridge are regularly replaced.
Cockroaches are very closely associated with human habitation. As they commonly feed on decaying food and live in unsanitary areas such as sewage systems, they present a considerable risk to health through the potential transmission of disease. Before using the Exoroach Cockroach Trap, remove all potential food sources. Clean the area, especially all spillages and remove waste material. Block or seal any broken fixtures in which cockroaches may find a harborage.
Cockroaches like warm dark locations. Place the Exoroach Cockroach Trap in these locations; where adults have been seen; along the edge of rooms and under furniture or equipment; or where there are signs of egg cases (oothecae). Check the Exoroach 24 hours after first placement and if no cockroaches are trapped move the Exoroach to an alternative location. Move the trap to several locations over a period of weeks to provide maximum trap catch.
Over time the Exoroach Cockroach Trap becomes more attractive as trapped cockroaches leave aggregation pheromone inside the trap. The Exoroach will be more effective if left in place after a spray or chemical treatment. Do not treat the trap with pesticide.
