Frequently Asked Questions

What is the added value of buying Bengal Roach Spray? 

IT COSTS YOU LESS TO STAY BUG-FREE! When used properly, Bengal Roach Sprays will rid the home of roach infestation – something other roach sprays cannot do because they do not get to the source of the problem: the roaches hiding in walls and behind cabinets. The customer will buy can after can of the competing sprays yet will never get rid of the problem. The cost of buying numerous cans of the water-based competitor's products will rapidly add up to more than Bengal. Buy Bengal - It works - Problem solved.

Why is Bengal Roach Spray more expensive than other roach spray products?

IT MAY COST MORE THAN OTHER PRODUCTS BUT IT WORKS SO MUCH BETTER! Bengal Roach Spray contains more active ingredient and an expensive dry propellant that penetrates deep into cracks and crevices where roaches hide, which makes it more costly to manufacture. Our competitors often use a lot of water in their products. Water serves to reduce the performance of the product by making it unable to penetrate to where roaches hide. These products often contain messy solvents and emulsifiers. Bengal Roach spray leaves no mess and has no odor.

Where is the best place to spray?

Bengal Roach spray should be directed into cracks and crevices where roaches hide. In the home, places to spray include underneath sinks in kitchens and bathrooms, especially where the pipes go through the wall. Insert the extension tube into the crack around the pipes and inject the spray back into the wall. Other places to treat are beneath appliances such as the dishwasher, refrigerator, stove and trash compactor, behind food storage cabinets and cupboards, and in laundry rooms beneath the washer and dryer. Spraying baseboards is mostly a waste of product and not recommended unless roaches are seen going under a baseboard to a hiding place.

I sprayed it on a roach, why didn't it kill the bug instantly?

Bengal Roach Spray provides total kill and not quick knockdown. Bengal Roach Spray is designed to irritate roaches before killing, which causes them to run out of their hiding places to die on surfaces where they can be picked up and disposed. Roaches that come into contact with Bengal Roach Spray will die in a few minutes to an hour.

Why did the roaches come back?

Bengal Roach Spray does not leave a lingering residue; it degrades over a few days or weeks and is no longer available to kill roaches. If your neighbors have roaches or they are brought back in to your house in boxes, sacks, old clothing or other infested materials, re-application will be necessary. If you need extended control of roach populations, Bengal Gold® Roach Spray contains an insect growth regulator that provides up to 6 months of prevention and control!

Are roaches immune to it?

Although some immunity of roaches to certain pesticides has been documented, Bengal Roach Sprays contain a high percentage of active ingredients. At these levels, it is unlikely that pesticide immunity will be a factor with Bengal Roach Spray. Additionally, Bengal Gold® Roach Spray contains an insect growth regulator, which is effective against resistant or pyrethroid-tolerant roach species.
