Hey guys just wanted to find out what ya'll had success with on exterior treatments for american/oriental roaches. We currently service many hotels on the s.c. coastline and we are getting killed with call backs for "palmetto bugs". We usually do an exterior perimeter treatment with a power sprayer and/or backpack.

We used Polyzone for the last 6 months are our call-back rate was actually higher than the previous year using Masterline Bifentrhin. Just FYI.

I would try using a microcap like demand, cykick or polyzone for residual/protection from heat and then adding an EC like tengard for knock down. The EC should also penetrate through mulch or pine neeedels better. Also spreading either an insect granule OR scatter bait could help. And if your not doing so now, try dusting C&C outside. Its more about application and less about which chemical to use. Some work better than others, but there's still no silver bullet. Good luck!

Brandon, so far I've not experienced any call-backs using Polyzone.

You do know it calls for using it at a higher rate on the exterior perimeter right? (.06% - 1.5oz)

Which is kind of stupid imo. If I am using the interior rates (.01%- .25oz or .03%- .75oz) I'd have to goto my truck and switch sprayers to treat the perimeter. I know that sounds lazy, but it helps to head out the door as soon as the homeowner hands you the check, and begin treating outside right away. I have been just using the middle rate for both.

Wettable Powders always worked best for me for the big roaches...and crickets,,,and earwigs, pillbugs etc.
Cypermethrin or Tempo.
