Combat your insect problems with Combat and & roach strips! With all the beautiful weather that summer brings it also brings those nasty creepy bugs into our homes. I hate bugs of all kinds but roaches creep me out! Combat gave me the opportunity to try their new ant & roach killing strips to help combat the roaches that have made its way into my home. Unlike the smelly toxic insecticides on the market that only kill when you spray them, Combat ant & roach killing strips attack the source of the problem by killing the nest and colony.


With Combat’s new discreet design, you can hide the bait strips in areas where roaches are more prone to go while keeping it away from children. In addition, the Combat roach killing strips will kill both small and large roaches.


It is recommended to use all bait strips in the package at one time to maximize the benefits. Tear the strips apart and gently pull back protective film to expose the bait. Each bait has food and water combined with fipronil, a fast acting insecticide that in turn will kill roaches within hours once the bug has come in contact with the bait. I have been using this for quite some time. I put baits in my cabinets, next to and behind the refrigerator, under my kitchen sick, under the cabinets, and on my counter tops. On the back of the strip is an adhesive backing that you need to pull off to apply the strips against your cabinets. I have found that the adhesive is weak and after applying them against my cabinets, they were falling off within minutes. My best suggestion is to get some double-sided sticky tape or sticky foam to adhere to the back. These strips have been working wonderfully in combating my roach problem. I found a couple roaches with the bait stuck to it, as it must have died on its way back to the colony! Yay!! Now that we all have the willies from talking about roaches, I also had the chance to review the new Combat ant strips.

Ants have also been another issue especially in the bathroom at the window. I have purchased many different ant baits before and none has ever worked big waste of money in my opinion. Again, these are just like the roach strips you tear the bait and then remove protective film to expose the bait. The ant baits are clear in color with food, water and insecticide mixed in. After placing these near the windows and on the ground at the entrance door I have noticed no more ant problem! I have to say these are phenomenal and are worth every penny.

You can find any of these kits at any major retailer including Walmart, Home Depot, Target, Family Dollar, Dollar General, and Publix.
