Advion Roach Bait Gel

Advion Roach Bait Gel is a bait gel designed for bait-resist German roaches as well as other roaches. Use Advion indoors and outdoors as a crack and crevice treatment to control tough infestations.

How Advion Roach Bait Works

Advion Roach Bait Gel by Dupont contains indoxacarb as the active ingredient -- currently the sole member of a new class of chemistry, oxadiazines, which affect insects' nervous systems. After ingesting Advion, the cockroach's own internal enzymes change the molecular structure and attributes of indoxacarb into the more potent MetaActive compound, resulting in paralysis, followed by death.

Beyond the initial impact, Advion cockroach gel bait provides powerful exponential control of cockroach infestations through secondary kill for complete infestation elimination.

This cockroach gel bait is formulated such that cockroaches will consume it even in the toughest situations, particularly in gel bait-resistant conditions

Treatment Rates for All Uses

  • For heavy infestations of cockroaches, apply 3 to 5 spots of ADVION cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet.
  • For light to moderate infestations of cockroaches, apply 1-3 spots of ADVION cockroach gel bait per 10 linear feet.
  • Each spot of ADVION gel bait should equal about 0.5 grams (approx. 1/4" diameter)
  • For all levels of cockroach infestations, when a bead of ADVION cockroach gel bait is used, apply a small thin bead that is less than 1/8" wide and approximately 2 inches long.


1 Box- 4 (1.058 oz) syringes, 1 plunger and 2 tips. You may add on extra plungers if needed.

The Best Product It WORKS.
Advion is the best product and the only one that I have ever needed because it worked with the Gentrol didnt have roaches for at least 6 yrs. It flooded in our home and had to get out to get sheetrock put back in so it like starting all over again. I had alot of the product left but it got old and too hard to work the gel that is.

Like Crack to These Hardy SOBs
Having grown up in FL (including numerous long visits on the gulf), I knew I’d need some bait for my trip to Sanibel/Captiva. BUT ... before I left, I was in a hurry and bought the wrong gel to start with: gel bait for German roaches. When I arrived at the beach house, sure enough, roaches (even though the exterminator came the 2nd day after I’d arrived.) The roaches came out at night, INSIDE(!), when all the lamps were on. They came out from under the crown molding, and crawled down in between the grooves in the wood paneling. Before I could even grab my RAID can, they’d scurried back up into the molding, escaping through the paneling grooves. HORRIFYING! I could not sleep! When the Invictus didn’t work, I had the Advion gel bait fed-ex’d to me. Roaches at night on the wall w/the lights on? No way I could handle that. Advion quickly arrived (the DYOPC guys helped me determine I was NOT dealing w/German type, over the phone) and I put tiny little pea blurbs of Advion bait in every crack and crevice I could find — especially the gaps between the crown molding and the grooves in the paneling.

Never saw another roach again. Not one. I don’t know where they went — presumably back into the walls to share w/their friends — but they never showed themselves or their carcasses again.

Recently, I applied it between the planks of our backyard Vekka deck (PVC — not wood) on the cross boards supporting the wide planks. This was in daylight, shortly before noon, and I just put down pea-sized (or smaller) blurbs. (When grilling one night, I’d seen some tentacles poking up between the planks!) **Check your weather first before applying and try to confirm no rain is coming for a few days.

Some of the bait blurbs (I put them on almost every single cross board on the entire deck + stairs) were partially consumed even before I had finished the whole deck. This stuff is like crack for roaches. It’s now been three days (mercifully, with no rain) and 85% of the bait has been consumed. Haven’t seen any more tentacles, but I feel certain I had a big damn problem, based on the consumption rate.

Imagining how many of these SOBs are under my deck shivers me timbers, but Advion is getting them. Planning to call DYOPC tomorrow to see what follow-up should be done, to make sure I get them all.

HIGHLY recommend this product. Easy to apply & affordable. Worked instantly at the beach; used inside our house right after we moved in and never saw even roach #1; and on backyard deck, this bait has proved to be a huge success among its target constituents.

***Be sure to take this stuff w/you if you ever stay on the beach in FL; you’ll need it inside & on any outside decks. Exterminator sprays simply don’t work. Good luck, roach crushers!

Best stuff ever!
I had been using a service.that I had signed a years contract with They would come, roaches would disappear and then right before the service was due to return the roaches would come back! How convenient!
Then I tried advion and never saw another roach!!
I fired the expensive service too!!

Fantastic stuff
As a Property Manager I have used Advion Gel and bait station in a 34 unit apartment building with completely successful results. There is nothing else on the market like this product.

Run away citizen
This stuff is terrific along with the demon fx that do it yourself pest control sells. Lived in my house 30 years and now a senior citizen that can no longer afford terminix or orkinl pest control. After 2 years without them my house became infested with roaches and I couldn't see my way out. They were about to run me out. After using these products I can live and not be embarrassed to having company over for Sunday dinners. Kudos to this insectide. It is awesome!!!!

Product works!
This product really works. I lived in a roach-infested house and almost moved out until I discovered Advion Roach Bait Gel. Unbelievable results. Within 3 days roaches were all gone & didn't have to move!

German Roaches
So my grandmother lives in a big apartment building that has roaches. We have tried and tried to control roaches at least in her unit for months. One day I pick her up and take her to the bank and the roaches decided to invade my car. I saw maybe one or two the day I took her to the bank. And about a month later it was an infestation. I would almost wreck every time I got in my car because guess what I saw a roach. I did some research and order the about 100.00 worth of stuff and the advion roach gel hands down was the best. I had mixed peanut butter with boric acid and yes it killed a few here and there. When I put the advion gel in my car within a day or so there were ABSOLUTELY NO MORE ROACHES! It is now approx. 6 months later and I haven't seen a roach in my car. Now as for my grandmothers apartment I put it in her unit and the elderly neighbors unit and they both see a roach every now and then but no where near as many. And I would assume that is due to the big building and there being more than 20 residents in one building and they are on the bottom floor. Needless to say this product works.

Worked the first time but came back over and over worse than before
Worked the first time had to use every 3 months to keep bugs at bay now seems to make them multiply and they boomed out of control so going to switch it up to see if it works
Review by Vic / (Posted on 9/12/2017)
Everything dies!!!
I placed this gel around my apartment in two stages... once a week for two weeks, and in the recommended amounts (1-2"lines approx, 1/4 in diameter, approx every 10 or so feet +or-.). The day after application, I saw that it had been touched. Second day, I saw a reduction in activity, day 3 however... my wife came home to approximately 40-50 dead roaches in the kitchen alone. (Mind YOU we are very clean. The cause of the infestation is due to living in an apartment and having dirty bastards on all sides of us... and dirty bastards having lived there before. ). The activity he remained relatively low for approx. 2-3 weeks, upon the advise of some friends of mine that are Lic. Pest control workers, I applied daemon (base boards, cracks and crevasses, twice in a two day period. This is so they do not acclimate to the poison.), I've left that alone for nearly a week with periodic application of Arlion. And next month, I'm going to follow up with the advion gel... I have had a dramatic reduction in German roach activity, I can confidently say I have seen only 1or 2 staggering around, hence my application of arlion spray... leave the carcus behind so that the others can eat it and die as well... amazing results!!!

Used for 1st time in a friend's kitchen for the German roaches, together with Demon WP for rest of house, that I have used for years. Ready to put out 2nd dosage, but friend says it looks like it is working great, they are heading for the hills, slowly, before they die.

No more cockroaches!
Amazing product . I recommend it strongly.

This stuff works!
We had an explosion of roaches that we couldn't get rid of. The house we rent has too many hidey holes that they could escape from the sprays, etc. Ordered the Advion Roach Gel and the roaches were literally lapping this stuff up faster than I could put it out! Within two days we saw a huge drop off and am ordering more for those coming in from the outside. I am using this in conjunction with a breeding inhibitor. So happy to find this stuff!

didn't kill for me.

Very Pleased Customer
I was very pleased with the fast shipping, thanks. I'm also more than satisfied with this item. A couple of boxes were shipped to us and stored without opening. We think this is where the roach problem came from. They slowly started showing up and we thought we would nip it in the bud with roach spray but more and more showed up. We tried fogging, but it had zero effect. Exterminators wanted contracts so we decided to do a search on line and that's how we found out about this product. It got good reviews, and here's another one for you. We placed dots around the house and immediately saw results the next morning. Sickly roaches were coming out from different areas all day. Within a week they were all gone. It's a good idea to pull your appliances out and treat areas behind them. It was one of their favorite places. We never knew we had so many, just thought a dozen, but it was more like three dozen. So happy to be roach free. Thanks again. I'll be back if I ever need you, but happy to say it looks like I won't.
Review by Anniex / (Posted on 7/13/2015)
unbelievably awesome
I had tried it all; from store products to contracts with exterminators. Nothing could eliminate the cockroaches that had literally taken over my house. A large infestation can change the way you feel about living in your own home. Well after two weeks of Advion, ALL the roaches were gone. I'm writing to you now, 18 months later, and they haven't come back. I keep some on hand, just in case, along with some other stuff I bought from DIY, but man, Advion is the bomb!.

This is like crack for roaches
As soon as you put it out it draws roaches right to it. I have to keep adding more gel as they are eating it up. I literally watched a roach eat it and lose his mind, running around like crazy.
Review by Zombiedawg / (Posted on 1/7/2015)
After trying Onslaught with a growth regulator for 3 weeks with NO results I put out the Advion in little bb size drops and a little Advert powder. Bingo 2 weeks later, all the German Roaches are gone from all 8 units in the building

My rental house was infected with roaches. After trying other products that fail, a friend gave me a tube and overnight I could see dead roaches. I order some the same day. This gel really works.

good bye roaches
I have rental properties and I had no idea that the tenants had roaches. To make a long story short I had only 4 days to get this property ready. I ordered the product and used as directed. Wow in 3 days the only roaches I saw where dead.

Review by Capadon / (Posted on 7/18/2014)
The ONLY solution I have found
my roach problem in my apt comes and goes throguh the years -Recently it became VERY bad - I had an obvious infestation and they were ALL OVER, esp the kitchen and bathroom floor. I will spare you the details bc it is really gross.

I had tried many products ( the light blue powder ) exterminator (waste of time ) and was at my wits end. I went into Bed bath Beyond to look for a new product - the salesman told me not to waste my time and he advised ADVION .
The rest is history-my roaches are gone. I was seeing 100 per day after the Advion it decreased to 1 per day now 2 weeks later I see NO ROACHES

Product well worth using!
This is a product well worth using. Roaches literally come out of the woodwork to eat the bait, once they smell it. A small drop of bait weill disappear within 24 hours and then they'll come back for more.
Review by Rich / (Posted on 2/22/2014)
When I purchased this I was very skeptical. I thought that this was just to good to be true. Well you proved me wrong :-) I have lived in my townhouse for 10 years, but this last year we just got infested with roaches. I had an exterminator come out, but within a couple of days you could see them again. Well with this product, you really don't see anything and it works instantly. The next day all you see are dead ones... It has been a month now and I have seen nothing. Thank you... Your product is great...
Review by Nomoreroaches / (Posted on 1/31/2014)
Works as advertised
I put some Advion on top of, around and on the sided of my wife's chicken incubator box. German cockroaches all over the box. I literally fed one of the larger ones with the tip of the applicator. They came out of the woodwork to taste some. The next morning, there were at least 40 dead ones on the floor. Some were still doing the neurotic cockroach death (dancing on their backs). It was magnificent to watch, as German Cockroaches (waterbugs) are brutally tough, nasty as can be and multiply quickly. Best on the market. No doubt!

Bye Bye Roaches
This product really works! This product works fast, saw dead roaches the next day. After a few days I have not seen any roaches or droppings. This is a professional product.

Highly recommended
The house that I am renting from became infested with roaches. I had to call a pest control company out to my house, every 5-6 months. After, being tired of going through this routine, I looked on the internet for a better method. I found this web site and called to order this product. It took about a good 3-4 weeks to get rid of the roaches completely. But it is well worth it. It feels good to be able to come home and not see roaches scatter all over the place. I highly recommend this product andam greatful that iI found this website. Very happy customer :)

Professional Exterminator Approved
I work as a Professional Exterminator within a 350 mile radius(not for a National Brand but a Family Owned Brand) I do alot of business though, My boss liked to use a bait that simply didn't do the job, I let him know that the bait was ineffective and he simply told me, Don't tell me how to run my business, I politely told him he hadn't been out in the field in over 20 years.

So I took it upon myself to order Advion myself, Have it shipped to my house and would just put it in my pocket before I went to work, I had a residential property that I serviced that I had fought with for WELL OVER a Year with both Brown Banded and Oriental Cockroaches. I'm serious when I say that this place didn't have thousands, not hundreds of thousands but this place had MILLIONS of Cockroaches no lie. I could smell them when I got out of my truck.

Well needless to say Advion busted that problem right in the behind, Within 6 treatments, One Service a week those suckers were gone...

This is a very rare case though, which is why it took so many treatments to fully get rid of them... This place had roaches 2 years before they even tried to do anything about it..

I used it on other places and 1-2 treatments is all it took to fully get rid of them.. I as a Professional Exterminator of many years HIGHLY recommend this product if you have a roach infestation.
Review by Professional Exterminator / (Posted on 10/7/2013)
you'll see results less than 24 hrs - get your broom ready!
We moved into our home and found it was infested with roaches. We purchased products from a local store that were expensive, over $100 each time, and did not do a good job at getting rid of the roaches. I found this site and after spending a long time reviewing products and reviews I chose to purchase Advion. I probably over applied the product but I just wanted the roaches dead. I placed little beads everywhere that I could. The next morning I couldn't believe the amount of dead roach bodies all over the house. After my initial freak out I set out sweeping them up. I was glad it worked so well and so quickly. Over the next few days, I continuously saw more bodies appear. I had also purchased several of the Gentrol point source disks and placed them around the house. The little buggers that made it ended up all freaky and "fuzzy" looking due to their wings being all crunched up and after they died, gone!! No more roaches after the initial application, and I still have 2 tubes left. Its such a relief to be able to turn on the kitchen/bathroom lights and not have nasty critters running for dear life around you. I've recommended this product to several people, and for the price, you just can't beat it.

So happy with results of Advion
When I received my products from DIY pestcontrol we were about to go out the door for dinner. My husband put a little on an index card and left it on the counter. When we got home there were a bunch of roaches eating the stuff. We got busy putting the Advion and the other product we bought (Avert). The next morning I had a bunch of dead roaches in the floor. I swept them up and two hours later there were more. This kept up for days. A week later there was a marked decrease in the roach population. It has been two weeks and we are only seeing a few here and there. Every morning there are a few dead roaches in the floor. I am truly impressed. My husband told me that he didn't think much of trying this but he let me. Now he keeps saying,"I think you're on to something." We have had a bad roach problem for a long time. We have thrown everything we could find at them including a pest control service. We never got completely rid of them. We bombed the house a month before we found the Advion and there seemed to be more roaches than ever. For the first time in a long time, I believe we will get rid of all of them. I have ordered some Gentrol and put that out and I just ordered some roach traps to see where we are in the process. I found they seemed to eat the Advion better if I put it on index cards in little squiggles. I will update in a few weeks to tell our progress. Thank you DIY Pest

I just can't say how happy I am
I just had to write and say what a great job the Advion Roach Bait Gel & Gentrol Aerosol do. I moved into a house 4 1/2 yrs ago that was infested and have been fighting to get rid of the roaches since then.
I have tried different products from stores and different pest control companies with little to no results.
Within hours of using these products I could see a difference. After trying to get rid of the problem for so long it is amazing to find a product that works so well.
While the products are more expensive than what can be found at the store it is cheaper in the long run than paying for a pest control company to come out every month.
I just can't say how happy I am to have finally found something that actually works to get rid of this problem. Also, your company is super fast at shipping which is much appreciated.
Thank you,
Review by Ellen / (Posted on 1/25/2013)
awesome product, awesome company
When I got cockroaches in my house, I had a well-known company in to get rid of them. I cleaned everything out of my kitchen and they sprayed. This was repeated at intervals over the next 3 years at a cost of hundreds of dollars, and hours and hours of cleaning. I tried and tried, but nothing I did made any difference. I just knew I would have to live with those horrible things forever.
I found your company, and I was ready to buy EVERYTHING. I had dozens of items in my shopping cart when I finally decided I needed help. When the very nice man on the phone told me I only needed one application of this product, I didn't believe him. The roaches were well entrenched in the walls and absolutely everywhere, and I was going to knock them all out with one application of an inexpensive product?
I got the product, and its was laughable how easy it was to use. I just knew it wasn't going to work, but I was desperate.
A week later I actually wept with joy and relief when I realized the cockroaches were gone, just simply gone. That sounds like an exaggeration, but I spent so much money and time and effort before I found you, and I didn't think anything was going to work. You guys are fabulous. I recommend you to everyone.
