In an uncomplicated battle with cockroaches, insecticides in the form of gels show themselves on the good side today. And among such funds, one of the most popular among the people can be called a gel from cockroaches Dohloks.
With its intended use to spray cockroaches on the spot, this gel handles very effectively. The fatty base of the gel makes it possible for him not to dry out for a long time, and therefore the term of its action is longer than for the sprays.
The substance-attractants in the gel composition are more attractive to cockroaches than in insecticide crayons. The product is in a syringe with a narrow tip that allows it to be applied accurately and accurately, not only on horizontal, but also on vertical surfaces (walls, bends of the shell, bathroom).
If you analyze the reviews on the Internet, Dohloks gel is quite effective against cockroaches , which, combined with the convenience of application, continues to gain popularity in the market.
What means are not offered today for their destruction? We tried different, but after they applied this gel from cockroaches with the eloquent name "Dohloks" to all skirting boards and pipes in the kitchen about 10 years ago, the parasites disappeared (probably, in fact, have died or fled)! Honestly, did not expect such an effect, but now I recommend this tool to all the familiar.
Where to buy a remedy for cockroaches Dohloks?
A relatively low price also helped to get popular recognition for this gel. To destroy colonies of cockroaches on an area of about 45 square meters. You will need one 20 ml syringe of Dohloks gel.
The price for one pack with a Dohlox syringe is about 40 rubles. (which is very inexpensive, unlike the same Globol). Buy Dohloks gel can be either in the market or in the nearest supermarket, and at specialized points like pet stores or veterinary pharmacies.
On the tray near the subway means from cockroaches Dohloks attracted me with its price and ridiculous name. I was just looking for a good remedy for these parasites, because in the hostel of our faculty it was simply impossible to live because of them. In my room in general, in my opinion, turned out to be a real hotbed. Initially, the cockroaches were not visible, but as soon as we settled on and unpacked the products brought from home, what started here! They climbed out of all the cracks! We already set up little girls and traps, and bought expensive means, but there was no effect from all this. I will not say that after the use of Dohloks, the cockroaches disappeared the next day, a week later we noticed these parasites at night, but were happy that their number had already begun to decrease. We still persuaded the girls from the neighboring block to try this gel, and soon the cockroaches really disappeared!
Composition of gel
The main active ingredient of Dohloks gel is fipronil , which is widely used in veterinary medicine (for fighting ticks and fleas) and in agriculture (for the destruction of pests of crops). This insecticide has good intestinal activity and a powerful contact effect on insects.
At the same time, it has not a very high toxic effect on highly organized creatures (for example, domestic animals and humans), which made it possible to widely use it in various means from cockroaches, including in the drug Dohloks.
Getting inside the insect, fipronil blocks gamma-aminobutyric acid, which determines the speed of passage of nerve impulses. Thus, this insecticide damages the nervous system of insects, causing them paralysis and death within 8 hours.
It must be said that the frequent inclusion of this substance in the composition of means for combating harmful insects has led to the emergence of resistance to it of their individual populations. Hence the conclusion follows that the use of Dohloks gel in rare cases may not produce the expected result. If the desired effect is not observed or is weakened, it is best to alternate fipronil with other insecticides.
Buying a gel from the cockroaches Dohloks, you need to pay attention to the manufacturer (at the moment the official supplier is the company "Azurit-Lux"). In the market today you can see counterfeit products of various manufacturers with other active substances.
The girlfriend claimed that the gel "Dohloks" is the best cure for cockroaches, attorneys on their own experience. Without thinking twice, I went to look for this miracle remedy, because the cockroaches simply got me. I have already unsuccessfully used for their destruction a spray, several gels and traps. I found it in a veterinary pharmacy nearby. Having opened, I did not feel a strong smell, began to apply gel around the perimeter of the kitchen, including behind the cupboards and behind the garbage can. By color, the remedy turned out to be light yellow. I was glad that the next morning I found several dead cockroaches on the floor. For a week I still found them on the floor several times. Somewhere I read that these insects are more attracted to food than water, so I used the "Dohloks" instead of a dripping faucet in the kitchen. In the end, in a couple of weeks, I did not see any cockroaches day or night. So the enthusiastic response of a friend about Dokhloks, to which I initially was skeptical, turned out to be true.
How to use Dohloks gel?
Under the instruction, the means of Dohloks should be applied with a dotted line with an interval of 2 cm along the places of the suspected congestion of cockroaches. If the number of insects is not too large, then to save, you can increase the distance between the applied points to 4 cm.
You can also apply Dohloks on cardboard or paper strips, which are then very easy to remove. The active effect of the gel comes on the second or third day, but if the effect does not occur, then no need to apply the remedy again, because the duration of the insecticide persists for 2 months.
It is not very convenient that the active substance is in the public domain (in contrast, for example, from poisonous traps), so it is recommended to apply the product in places inaccessible to children and pets. On the other hand, according to experts, any gel from cockroaches, including Dohloks, has a stronger effect on insects than traps.
Once I noticed that cockroaches began to appear in the apartment. I think that they crawled from neighbors, because the kitchen and bathroom I always keep clean. I placed several sticky traps, but there was not much use from them. On cardinal measures in the form of a gel from cockroaches or aerosol was not solved, because the apartment lived a cat. And then a friend, who also has a cat, said that like a gel, "Dohloks" helped her. Has bought or purchased on the next day this agent. The gel is in a syringe, where instead of a needle a thin plastic tip. Pressing the piston of such a syringe, it is convenient to apply the gel even behind the skirting boards. I plastered the "Dohloksom" cardboard stripes and put them behind the garbage can and under the bathroom. And I also put a droplet of gel on the ventilation holes. At once I will tell, that before the beginning of use of "Dohloksa" has transferred a bowl of a cat in a corridor. After a couple of days, I stopped noticing uninvited guests in the kitchen, even at night. To be faithful, stood another week, the cockroaches did not appear.
