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!
I can't believe how well this product worked. We had so many of those small brown German cockroaches running around in every room, they were into everything including the fridge. We tried spray, bombs, baits, nothing worked, those product did not even help a little bit. I saw this Talon Cockroach killer gel at Coles and thought that I would give it a go, I was very sceptical and thought it would be like all the other stuff that I tried, but to my surprise it worked almost straight away and now I see only dead cockroaches. I have recommended this product to anyone that mentions they have an issue with cockroaches, it is the only thing that I have found that actually works.
You won't get better than this D.I.Y
Was astounded at the effectiveness of Talon roach Gel. It may take three applications if you have a bad infestation, but for a total of around $24, it's certainly cheaper than what you will pay Pest Controllers for virtually the same thing. Best German roach killer ever!
Such a small amount of product does a mighty job
As others have said, I tried bombs, household sprays, industrial sprays and anything else I could find. There are only two things that work - a size 11 shoe and Talon. It was recommended to me by a fellow who lives in an apartment on the 6th floor. I am on the 1st floor. So I suppose the little charmers are right throughout the building. I bought 3 tubes at a cost of about $8 each and strategically placed little baits where I thought would be most effective. I'm the original skeptic. Low and behold, I started finding very sick cockies wandering...into the kitchen floor. There they died. I can only assume there are many more that didn't make it to the kitchen floor and died in other hiding places. I also baited my study and anywhere there is warmth. They are still dying. I'm not sure when to stop baiting but I'll continue to use Talon.
I had tried everything from Bombs to Baits and hundreds of cans of spray. This product was brilliant within a couple of weeks every cockroach large and small, were gone. My biggest problem were the German little buggars but they could not stand up against this product. I couldn't recommend enough
The perfect DIY solution to wipe out cockroaches.
We had a massive problem with German roaches - no amount of cleaning, Morton bait traps, "Professional" residual spray products and 30-day knock down aerosols would work. After researching products containing Indoxacarb (which are normally used by professionals at $40-60 per 5g tube) I stumbled upon this product at Coles and decided to by two tubes. The formulation and strength was exactly the same as the pro products and a hell of a lot cheaper. The result?
Cockroach armageddon. It didn't seem to work at first but after 12 or so hours, hundreds of cockroaches, big and small would come out to die - this continued for days. After a week, not a single roach to be seen.
It definitely works!!
Having a bad German roach problem is stressful! While waiting to make an appointment for pest control to come out to fumigate I seen this product at Coles and thought what the hell!!
It's been 3 days since placing 2 blobs behind the fridge and there are dead roaches everywhere!!
It certainly kills them!
Problem I have is I now would need to buy another 10 tubes of it to get the whole house done!!
It works great!! Just need the option of a bigger size!!
Great Alternative To Expensive Pest Control
I purchased three tubes x 5g from Coles as I have been having a problem with German roaches for a few months. Every night when I went into the kitchen I would see 3 or 4 cockroaches scatter when I turned the light on. I applied this product a week and a half ago into all the cracks in my kitchen and around the fridge which is where I saw the most activity. Now I only have one or two still appearing every second day already dead or dying.
While it is too early to say how long the product will last and it's long term effectiveness, I would still recommend this as a great DIY pest management.
