Tough jobs require tough solutions. Cockroach control in commercial kitchens can be extremely challenging, thanks to the presence of moisture, grease, food, and harborage sites. Combine all of this with bait-averse or pesticide-resistant German cockroach populations, and the gauntlet has been thrown down.

To prevail in such battles, use an appropriately labeled contact insecticide featuring the active ingredient acephate. It should be noted, however, that when acephate is applied in food areas (such as commercial kitchens), it only may be applied as a spot or crack-and-crevice treatment, and that three to seven days may be required for maximum effectiveness.
