Can't believe it actually works
Had a bad German infestation happening. My mum used to have the same problem but said she used talon and swears by it. I bought two tubes and just dotted around where I saw their mess (the black dots they leave). It's been two days now and every time I walk in the kitchen I have to sweep up a bunch of dead and dying cockroaches, it's a beautiful sight lol. Will be doing a big wipe down inside of all the cupboards in a few days as I will need to with all the dead ones dropping EVERYWHERE, and will reapply once done.
I was going to pay over $300 for pest control, but instead $8 a tube fixed the problem. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it myself.
This really works
Had a bad cockroach infestation 2 years ago. Was using surface spray and roach baits. They helped a little but would still see roaches. Then bought this on a whim. This was a game changer. Within a week never saw a roach again. I reapply every 3 months to keep a roach free house.
I’m a big fan of Talon Ant Killer so decided to give the roach gel a try. We have not had coackroaches around for a while but started to notice small cockroaches coming out of appliances in our kitchen. I applied this bait sparingly behind and around appliances and whitegoods as well as in cracks and voids around the skirting boards. After a day or so I’ve noticed many cockroaches laying dead on the kitchen floor overnight. It works.
Huge fan but bought cockroach gel instead of Ant gel
I am an absolute huge fan of selleys talon ant gel, but not noticing till I opened the package (was in a rush shopping before school pick-up), I had bought cockroach gel instead. I have a newly built home and have a shocking ant problem. Last application of Ant gel lasted 3-4 months. Out of curiosity I've applied the cockroach gel and the ants seem to enjoy it. As the colour is different I will wait till the ants have disappeared and will remove the gel off of my counter, but will let you know the results.
This is what you've been looking for!
I had major German Cockroach problem in the kitchen of a place that I had recently moved into. I had been told that the pest control had been in previously, but it sure didn't seem like they had. I tried 2x bombs over separate days to get rid of them - to no avail. Those little creatures were seemingly unkillable.
A bit of research - and by recommendations on this website, I gave the Talon Gel a go. WOW - is all I can say. (I didn't think I would ever be able to get rid of them.) Overnight it was clearly working. The sheer satisfaction of see...ing more dead roaches when I woke up / got home from work for a few days. I put the gel in spots around the kitchen as recommended. I did have to do two rounds, but within a week, the numbers had dramatically decreased. Two weeks later I might see 1 cockroach, but on the whole, the disgusting problem has been fixed (and this is a humid summer). I can't recommend this product highly enough. I am still amazed they haven't reappeared and I haven't even opened my second packet of Talon Gel!
This is the only product that actually worked and we had quite the plague, havent seen a living cocky in months .. excellent product, highly recommend.. be sure to follow the instructions and theyll be gone in no time
Tried sprays and bombs but still had cockroaches in kitchen. Tried Talon based on reviews here. It works. A few dead one on kitchen floor morning after using. A few more dead 'uns for a few days. No more roaches seen sincr.
Actually Works. Now Have Zero Cockroaches.
My previous review was based on the result after 2 days with one tube. After buying the second tube 2 days ago I now seem to have no cockroaches. I started with Mortein Cockroach gel and it did nothing. I bought a second- nothing. Heaps of roaches. Tried the Mortein and Raid plastic baits- Useless. Tried a single tube of Talon Gel and seemed to do nothing. After 2 days bought a second tube. Bingo. Zero roaches. I'll be using this stuff in the future.
Very impressed it really works
I had small German cockroach invading my kitchen. I used one and a bit of the tubes where the cockroach were hiding and after a couple of days there were sick ones then dead ones. I haven't seen a cockroach for six weeks. If they reappear I will use the remainder of the product before they take hold.
Works for months...! A truly GREAT product
All I can say is, Talon PLEASE don't water down this formula or put the price up too much, because you've made a truly great product. I put a few dabs about a foot apart around the kitchen, and there are no roaches for MONTHS. The dabs stay there pretty well too, wiping out any newcomers who try to invade. THANKS TALON ! You're saving capitalism lol.
I had concern of visible cockroaches anytime i go in kitchen and i applied on some areas before we went on holidays for 3 days and after coming back don't know where they gone. Found few dead on floor and the rest just disappeared maybe dead in hidden arras. Very happy with the product.
If only i had known sooner, i wasted so much money on other shonky roach kill products.
Bought 2 syringes and used the first one, i got about a meter long worth of gel and drew a dashed line around my fridge and sink(only chemical free water sources in the house) its been a week and all i see now dead roaches, amazing didn't even get to use the second tube.
excellent - 90% gone in 3 weeks
Sold at Coles supermarkets for around $8/ tube.
I have already used 7 tubes and the roaches are gobbling it down.
Within a day there are usually some very sickly looking cockroaches wobbling around and with 2 or 3 days there were literally thousands of dead roaches.
Don't waste your money on the roach bombs as they only kill a small percentage.
Bought it to remove German cockroaches didn't work at all.
Bought it for removing the German cockroaches. Didn't see any effect waste of money not sure none of the bombs worked this time. I tried to buy this product from Coles but some stores say they have 20 in stock but they don't exist in the racks.
- Verified purchase
It works !!
OMG, I will not use anything else EVER. I've tried bombs, sprays all of it forget them, they cost more & don't work. My neighbour upstairs moved out but left behind the most annoying German cockroaches. The landlord sprayed the unit & yes the simply moved into my unit. They loved my unit & multipied within days. I bought this gel & within days they were dead, after about a week all gone. I swear this stuff works, it gets back to the best & they love it. Great product. To buy I found the larger Coles stores.
Really a cockroach crusher!
That's a super effective solution. I tried baits and surface sprays first; sprays are useless, baits were partially working (reduced infestation), but still the problem was obvious and gradually worsening. Then I decided to give Talon a go; applied it into the places where cockroaches were most frequent. Dishwasher nooks and crannies (NOT THE PARTS IN DIRECT CONTACT WITH WATER!), under water sinks, fridge etc. From the very first day, obvious disruption and many roaches distracted and poorly moving; in two days - a deluge of dying crawlies, als...o dead are everywhere. I guess most of them died in hidden places, though, so I only saw a small fraction of the previous infestation... In 3-4 days almost non cocroaches visible. Absolutely recommend!
Questions & Answers
how come everyone that's got a good review comes from apart from maybe one in Queensland are from NSW where the product comes from, is this because the reviews are coming from the company & not the public
