Optigard Cockroach demonstrates excellent activity against target pests

As part of a choice test, Optigard Cockroach and Vendetta® Plus were offered to a recent field-collected strain of German cockroaches ("Meriwell"). While both baits achieved more than 90 percent mortality by Day 5, Optigard Cockroach, an advanced-generation avermectin, killed cockroaches faster than Vendetta Plus.

Optigard Cockroach demonstrates excellent activity against target pests

As part of a choice test, Optigard Cockroach and Vendetta Plus were offered to a strain of German cockroaches with documented aversion to maltose, fructose, glucose and sucrose ("Cincy"). While both baits achieved more than 90 percent mortality by Day 5, Optigard Cockroach, an advanced-generation avermectin, killed cockroaches faster than Vendetta Plus.

Speed of kill with Optigard Cockroach

As part of a choice test, Optigard Cockroach and Vendetta were offered to different strains of German cockroaches, all with varying levels of susceptibility and tolerance. Regardless of the cockroach strain, Optigard Cockroach quickly resulted in more than 80 percent mortality by Day 1.

Transfer effects of Optigard Cockroach via coprophagy

The a.i. in Optigard Cockroach, emamectin benzoate, remains viable within feces and tissues after ingestion by a cockroach. Cockroach nymphs that have never been directly exposed to the bait can consume those feces (defined as coprography), resulting in secondary kill. In this study, normal and bait-averse cockroach nymphs readily consume feces collected from nest mates that fed on Optigard Cockroach. After seven days, 100 percent mortality of bait-averse nymphs occurred, with 96 percent mortality of normal nymphs.

Optigard Cockroach field evaluation

Optigard Cockroach was applied in an apartment complex containing large populations of German cockroaches. Under very challenging conditions and with no other form of control implemented (such as physical modification), approximately 40 grams of Optigard Cockroach per apartment unit provided more than 90 percent control.

Crafting a Rotation Strategy

Cockroaches adapt quickly. That’s why the enhanced bait matrices and differentiated a.i.s found in Optigard Cockroach and Advion® Evolution Cockroach Gel Baits make them ideal rotational partners with each other. Advion Cockroach can also be used as part of a year-long cockroach control strategy that will help control a wide range of cockroach species.

Crafting a Rotation Strategy

The average life cycle of a German cockroach is three months. It is recommended that products be rotated every three months to match this cycle.

Trials reflect treatment rates and mixing partners commonly recommended in the marketplace.

Performance evaluations are based solely upon interpretation of public information and field observations.
