Q. What are cockroach glue traps?
A. An enviro - friendly trap made of bio degradable cardboard impregnated with a highly sticky non - toxic glue pad and attractant. The trap folds into a gable covered rectangle with opening on the sides and the ends that allows cockroaches access.
Q. How do they work?
A. Once the traps are assembled and activated and placed in dark areas where cockroaches traffic, the lure of the attractant encourages them to the bait placed centrally in the middle of the glue board. When they attempt to reach the bait, their feet get firmly stuck to the glue board preventing them from escaping.
Q. How often do I need to change them?
A. Depending on the degree of infestation, initially, in heavy infestations when the glue board is full or near full. This will alter as the population decreases. Cockroach eggs can lay dormant for up to 6 months before hatching, so it is important to always have activated glue traps at all times.
Q. How long will the glue boards remain active?
A. Provided the traps aren’t subjected to excessive heat or moisture, you can expect them to remain active for an extensive period of time or until full of cockroaches.
Q. What is the advantage of using the glue traps instead of poison baits, strips, sprays etc?
A. Firstly being a non-toxic product, there are NO POISONS! - it’s good for you and it’s good for the environment. Secondly, they offer a low cost long term solution to an ongoing problem. Because eradication does not rely on using poisons there is no risk of cockroaches developing tolerance to the traps. Especially important in commercial and domestic food prep areas.
Q. How do I dispose of used traps?
A. Simply discard into general refuse rubbish bin.
