Not easy to use as advertised

This product looked like it was what I wanted, as I had seen some cockies around the dishwasher. However, it was not as easy to use as I expected. Took of cap, pointed it where I wanted to put a bead and pushed plunger. It resisted. I pushed a little harder. It still did not move. I pushed a little harder. It went "pop" and sprayed the entire contents out in one go.
At this point, I have no idea on whether the cockies are going to like it or not, but they have plenty to try. Show details

Total failure

Such glowing reports that I went out and bought two units. I placed one in a kitchen cupboard and the other down beside the dishwasher. The cockroaches completely ignore it and are just as thick as ever after six days. I don't know how others could have had such great success when my cockroaches are so unimpressed. Show details

The best cockroach eliminator out there!

We’ve always had a German cockroach problem in every house we’ve lived in, I can finally say we have no infestation now! For years I tried using traps and sprays, shop bought and natural, and they only worked on a small population of those little buggers. I bought 6 of these gels on special at Coles. I used some of the gel in the beginning of last year and was very pleased with seeing so many dead roaches. I full on attacked them in winter when their numbers were low. It’s the middle of summer and I’ve only ever seen 1 roach at a time! I still have 2 gels left which I use to top up hotspots (1 still in the packet!). I recommend everyone use this as a safe, effective way to get rid of German cockroaches! Show details

Beyond words

Tiny dot of paste in the corners of the room away from food surfaces, topping up as needed and the infestation has gone within a few weeks. Friend recommended after his cleared in a few days. Beyond words at having them gone. So grateful, couldn't recommend enough. Show details

roach infestation is now almost gone

So I have been having this infestation for quite some time and everybody in the house knows how bad I'm freaking out! Unfortunately, the natural method didn't work so I decided on buying this and voila, the roaches are no longer seen! Show details

Put it in the howtater tank area where I have had an infestation for months. Kept spraying them but would come back

A couple of doses with this product and they are now all gone, it seems

Easy to use and I think pros use this type of gel Show details

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. Show details

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. Show details

Really works

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. Show details

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. Show details ·  1

Questions & Answers


Just wondering if this will stain my hybrid floors or white laminex surfaces?


It hasn't stained my white melamine cabinet shelves and the cockroaches haven't even looked at at it let alone eat it.


Lets hope mine get hungry while we are away and find lots of dead bodies on the floor when we get home.

1) Is Talon cockroach killer gel safe in a bedroom?
2) Does it give out fumes?

Thanks very much Valmorph. Though did you know gas (and many fumes) is odourless and that smell is arbitrarily put into it?


Hi all, where is the best places to apply this gel?

Talon’s Cockroach Killer Gel is an innovative first which kills cockroaches that directly come into contact with it. It also eliminates the entire colony through its unique release technology.


  • Kills American, German and other common cockroaches within days
  • Easy to apply to all horizontal and vertical surfaces
  • Treats cockroaches you can see and the ones you can't
  • Through the unique “MetaActive” release technology, the active ingredient is only activated by enzymes present in cockroaches. This minimises the risk to non-target organisms including humans and pets
  • The unique release technology causes a delayed mortality effect enabling a three-step contamination chain reaction spreading through the cockroach population
  • Used by professionals across the globe
  • To be used in indoor domestic situations

What reviewers thought

Users claimed that the product works very effectively as using a small amount of product around the house has seen cockroach numbers decrease dramatically. People also think at $8 a tube, the product provides great value for money.
