  • Product Overview

    Avert Dry Flowable Cockroach Bait by BASF has been scientifically designed to penetrate deep into cracks, crevices, and voids where typical cockroach gel baits cannot reach. Because roach populations can persist in deep pockets and inaccessible areas, Avert DF is an invaluable roach treatment tool for advanced or established cockroach infestations as it has the capacity to reach the roaches where they live, breed, and hide.
  • Benefits & Use

    Avert DF is a uniquely formulated cockroach bait providing lethal consumption through direct feeding and a pick-n-preen methodology. Delivering 100% mortality of both gel-averse and non-gel-averse roach populations, Avert DF has the durability to maintain its integrity and effectiveness for up to 22 weeks following application.
