Hawkeye Cockroach Bait is effective against a broad range of cockroaches including Gisborne,  American, and German cockroaches. The lethal ingredient Indoxacarb is slow acting, and due to the nature of cockroach feeding patterns, it spreads throughout the whole population.

Place the Hawkeye applicator dots under or behind any furniture, under the sinks in the kitchen and bathroom, next to the dishwasher, in cabinets, behind fridge, freezer and the oven where cockroach infestations are found and apply Hawkeye Cockroach Bait on the dots on the marked area (dime sized). Apply the bait in cracks and crevices.

Put the applicator dots close to areas where cockroaches hide, e.g cracks and crevices. Cockroaches do not need to feed everyday, therefore only some of the cockroaches emerge to find food each day. The closer the bait is to their hiding places, the better.

If you have a large infestation, place the dot applicators about 3 inches apart in several locations at the same time. For smaller colonies, they can be placed 2 to 3 feet apart. Focus on the kitchen and bathroom, these are the most likely places cockroaches will be hiding.

Monitor and reapply – keep an eye on the amount of bait present and check back every couple of days. Reapply the bait on the dot applicators if necessary, until you see no more feeding on the bait an you notice no cockroach droppings (if that was the case before).

Note: If it looks like the Hawkeye Cockroach Bait has not been frequented by cockroaches, then try changing the placement of the dot applicators to another location in the house and checking again in a couple days.

Do not spray around your dot placements with cleaning agents or other insecticides, as this can discourage cockroaches from taking the bait.

What is the active ingredient?

Hawkeye Cockroach Bait contains 0.6% Indoxacarb

Is it dangerous?

Indoxacarb has a low mammalian toxicity and is one of the safer insecticide active ingredients available to people and pets. The product itself is no more toxic than table salt (but it still should not be consumed).

How long does it take to work?

You can start seeing dead roaches within 5-6 hours and should start to see significant reduction in roach infestation within a week. After 2 weeks, over 90% of roaches should be dead with Hawkeye Cockroach bait under average to medium infestation levels. At that point, you will see very few emerging from hiding. Still, you should continue to apply tiny drops of gel bait until you stop seeing roach activity or no feeding over the bait gel.

How do I know if the roach bait is working?

The number one sign is fewer cockroaches out in the open. You should also find fewer droppings (if that has been a problem). Remember to keep an eye on the bait. At first, if it is disappearing quickly, that means the roaches are feeding on it and it should be doing its job. Later, as it kills the pests, you should find more left over when it is time to reapply.

Can roaches come back again once the whole population is killed?

Reinfestations can occur depending on the species involved and your house location. Roaches regularly enter buildings inhabited by humans to look for warm, damp environments in close proximity to food and water sources. Sometimes they are drawn to homes due to messy conditions e.g. dirty counters, open food containers etc. Sometimes, roaches will invade a home simply because it is easily accessible. Buildings with many cracks and crevices (such as openings around windows, doors, pipes, and so on) are particularly susceptible to roach invasions. Sealing outside cracks and holes in walls, can help limit such invasions.

Can you provide more detailed advice on eliminating roaches in my specific situation?

Yes, definitely! We are happy to help you get the best result from our products. Please contact us to discuss the details of your problem and we will advise on what to use, where to place it and when. Photos are a great help.

Hawkeye Cockroach Bait is a combination of slow acting insecticide (Indoxacarb 0.6%) and food attractants. It attracts cockroaches to find and eat the bait’s poisonous active.

Cockroaches begin to die after 5-6 hours of ingesting the bait.

Hawkeye Cockroach Bait wipes out an average to medium roach population in 1-2 weeks but can take about 4 weeks under high infestation levels. Under high infestation levels we recommend to use Hawkeye Flea, Ant and Roach Spray for a quick knock down of highly active cockroaches.

One 15 gram tube of Hawkeye Cockroach Bait is sufficient to kill an average infestation of cockroaches in houses and commercial kitchens.

Hawkeye Cockroach Bait is of minimal hazard to children and pets, additionally the benefit of placing it in hard to reach areas away from pets and children further reduces the risk.
