Compare how do they work? Roach Doctor vs Advion vs Maxforce vs Combat
Roach Doctor tricks the cockroaches with its smell and taste, which, when taken in by them, spreads automatically when they go in their colony by infecting and killing others.
Advion Roach Gel
Advion Roach Gel combines a highly attractive, proprietary gel formulation with a potent, non–repellent active ingredient. Cockroaches cannot resist this superior combination, and even the toughest populations are quickly controlled. Upon entering an insect, Indoxacarb is converted into a new molecule with insecticidal properties. This process is activated specifically by the insect’s own enzymes.
Maxforce Roach Gel
It contains Hydramethylnon, an active ingredient that works gradually as a metabolic poison causing death by inhibiting the formation of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). ATP provides the necessary energy to complete most biological processes. Within a few hours, the insects become lethargic and stop eating. This condition progresses until the insects die within 24 to 72 hours.
Combat Max Roach Killing Gel
It starts working in hours to exterminate roaches and helps keep infestation under control for up to six months.
