Roach Doctor Review

Anyone who has suffered from a roach infestation knows the dilemma of either managing it yourself or calling a professional. The problem with managing such a problem yourself is that you have to know what you’re doing and choose the right materials. The problem with calling a pro, at least out here in Las Vegas, is that most of them want you to sign a contract – which I won’t do. In either case, it is possible that a pesticide will be used that I don’t really want to be exposed to.

With Roach Doctor, we have a gel-filled syringe which you use to place tiny drops of their proprietary solution in areas you are most likely to find roaches. Roaches are attracted to the Roach Doctor formula bait, which they will consume and also track back to the rest of their colony. Once there, other roaches will be affected by the gel and will soon perish. For a few days, you may find dying roaches shuffling about on the floor, but eventually your roach population should dwindle dramatically. It’s a highly effective method of roach control.

One concern I have is not regarding the effectiveness of Roach Doctor, but that roaches could track the gel across cutlery, silverware, or even food, so you will need to be careful where you place it. When I’ve used similar gels in the past, I placed it away from my kitchen, such as around the garage, living room, baseboards, etc.

Even though we are only told that Roach Doctor contains a “proprietary” formula, it is almost certainly similar to other syringe gels found on the market. You don’t get a lot of gel in each tube, but a small amount will go a long way.

Price-wise, Roach Doctor is on the high end of the spectrum when compared to similar products discussed below. The double offer of four tubes for about $40 is more than double the cost of a similar best seller on Amazon. I also have not seen Roach Doctor in stores as of this December 2017 writing, meaning you’ll be forced into shipping costs and delays. I have no doubt that Roach Doctor is a highly effective product, but its cost and availability may be its downfall.


There are seemingly endless roach gels on the market. Most of them are highly rated, especially this best-selling $8 roach gel that has an “Amazon’s Choice” and boasts a solid consumer rating.

Roach Doctor really works! My daughter bought some things at a garage sale and apparently they were heavily infested. My car was disgusting and nothing worked to get rid of them. I’ve been using sprays, foggers, roach motels, glue traps and anything and everything I could find on the market. 9 months have passed and roaches still infest my car. I bought Roach Doctor and placed it in small doses in cracks and crevices inside the car. Within 2 hours I noticed a big difference. That was yesterday. Today I saw only 2 roaches!!! Hopefully by tomorrow my car will… Read more »

What I would like to know is how does a car become infested and stay infested with disgusting roaches?
