What are signs of cockroaches?

Cockroaches are nocturnal – they come out at night.  You may see cockroach shell casings when they invade your home.  These shell casings are recently hatched eggs.  The other common thing to look for is brown specks that look like pepper which are fecal matter or regurgitated food.  They leave an unpleasant odor.

How to get rid of cockroaches?

If you find you have a cockroach issue, clean up the room, remove all clutter to eliminate possible food sources for the cockroaches.  Sprinkle Scram Crawling Insect Killer in the common hiding spots such as in cabinets, closets, etc. 

Inspect under your refrigerator, clean this area, and sprinkle the powder in this area.  Check under cabinets and clean under there, too.  Apply Scram Crawling Insect Killer to the carpets, floors, under cabinets, behind appliances, and along baseboards.  For carpet, allow the powder to sit for at least 15 minutes and vacuum.  Leave the powder in all these areas for bugs to come in contact with it.   Be sure to put it in all the possible hiding spots.  Since this powder is people and pet safe, you do not have to worry about leaving the powder around your home.  Perform this treatment process with Scram Crawling Insect Killer treatment once a week for the next three weeks.  Be sure to refer to the date organizer on the back of the container. 

Scram Crawling Insect Killer is made of natural powder that destroys the outer layer of crawling insects causing them to dry up and die.  Sprinkle this powder indoors and/or outdoors so bugs can come into contact with it and die in 48 hours.
