Roaches can be an unsightly and uncomfortable problem for many households out there. Once an infestation takes hold, it seems like it can be impossible to deal with – especially if one’s home has pets.
Many pest solutions involve sprays and other chemicals that can be worrisome if there are cats and dogs in the household. Luckily, there are some fantastic products out there for pet owners that will take care of your roach problem quickly and safely.
Pet Safe Pest Control: 5 Household Roach Products
These tried and true pet-safe pest products are hailed by pet owners online!
1. Roach Doctor Ready-to-Use Cockroach Gel Bait
This roach gel comes in a paste-like form and is administered with a syringe. That means no spraying or questionable means that could harm your pets.
While your pets should still not come in contact with the solution itself, this product is meant to be used in hidden corners– behind your refrigerator, around cracks near piping, behind counsels, under furniture.
2. EcoSMART Organic Roach Killer Spray
This aerosol product is made of natural insect repellants derived from plant oils. Rather than killing pests (though this product can exterminate smaller infestations), this product forms a shield around properties that will discourage the entry of cockroaches and ants.
One downfall of this product is that it is noted for having a somewhat pungent smell, though that will eventually fade.
It’s also worth noting that this product is not extremely useful on huge roaches. However, if you’re noticing the beginnings of an infestation (such as baby roaches), this product could be handy.
3. Advion Cockroach German Roach Pest Control Tubes
This pest control product has been widely praised on Amazon, and for a good reason! With an active ingredient of indoxacarb 0.6%, this product can be used in virtually any type of home or commercial building.
To treat heavy infestations of roaches, squeeze the product around areas of entry in the same manner as the Roach Doctor product. Be sure to not apply the product in areas where pets may attempt to touch or lick the product.
Advion’s roach tubes are a great solution because they do not release fumes, and you (and your furry friends) won’t have to leave the building during application.
4. Eco-Defense Organic Home Cockroach Control Spray
Like EcoSMART’s product, this cockroach control spray is made from organic essential plant oils to kill and repel cockroaches, among other pests.
This product is safe to use around children and pests. It also boasts a two-month money-back guarantee.
5. Organic Catnip
We all know how much cats love this safe all-natural herb. It can also be a great way to repel pests as well!
Organic catnip has an active ingredient called nepetalactone, which is not toxic to mammals but is toxic to many insects, such as roaches.
We’d suggest making a tea solution from catnip and spraying it around your home.
