I purchased this product about a month ago after seeing how many people absolutely loved it. We have a brown roach problem, they haven't gotten too large quite yet but I've seen some about an inch long. I put two of these tablets where I would see the roaches hanging out, two on the stove, two around the sink (their water source), dropped behind the walls and general areas. I noticed no difference at all in the number of roaches. I managed to catch one in a bowl, I placed a glass cup over it. I trapped Randy the Roach in there with one of these tablets. Randy lived four days. I gave him a little bell pepper and he lived on for another week. Am I missing something here? The photo is Randy the Roach.
We've had Oriental (aka Asian) roaches in our neighborhood for over 20 years but this year seemed worse than normal due to the Northern California drought conditions. I'd tried roach motels and sticky traps but they just were not cost effective as I needed to replace them every few days and I didn't see any reduction in roach sightings. My yard has many areas with cracks and I'm sure we have colonies of roaches living in these cracks and under driveway, and other areas so I thought maybe these pellets would work. I didn't want to place the tablets where children or pets would get them (they do look like Certs breath mints or other candy) so I placed them in the cracks and under rocks, etc. My first impression is that these tablets have worked better than anything I've used in the past. In the hot spot areas where I placed them, I now find only dead roaches or soon to be dead (wandering in circles or upside down) whereas in the hot spot areas that I didn't treat, I found the same numbers of living roaches as before. You can't beat the price of $5 and there's sufficient pellets that I will be able to apply 2 more treatments once the existing pellets decay. Thanks Harris for getting a simple, cost effective way to reduce our roach infestation.
The tablets really do work! I began having roach problems several months ago and tried a variety of different products, including having a professional come in, and none of that worked to get rid of the roaches. I found an article about Harris Famous Roach Tablets and decided that for just $5 and because I had not tried tablets before, I would give it a try. To my amazement, I began to see fewer roaches 2 days after I put out the tablets. It is now 1 week after I placed the tablets and I have not seen even one roach! As an extra plus, the box of approximately 100 tablets was only about $5 and I only put out 12-15 tablets (per the instructions). Thank you to Harris!
These small round tabs worked to get rid of my German roach problem in the kitchen when other products failed. Went from seeing the bugs every day, to one time in the last month. Problem solved, affordably. One concern for pet owners - don't put these down low (per box instructions/warnings) or your pet might eat them. They look like big altoids so keep them away from little kids too. Worked within a day or two of placing the tabs around the kitchen. Have not yet removed them so I'm not sure if the bugs would return, but I'll be trying that soon.
I have a silverfish problem in my apartment, and tried nearly everything with no success in eliminating the problem. Finally bought these tablets a few days ago and, granted it's only been a few days, but since the moment I put these tablets all over the place I have not seen ONE silverfish anywhere! I used to see a minimum of 6-7 a day and now... Zip. I am so happy! I hope these tablets continue to keep those destructive things out of my house!!
Harris Roach Tablets are the only thing that works to eradicate and kill cockroaches. Living in Florida with 2-3 inch huge flying roaches unfortunately is a way of life here. These sewer dwellers are extremely filthy, disease carrying creatures. I never had seen 1 in my home for over 12 years until someone started storing junk near my house and must have brought them. This huge flying roaches call easily live outside but will come into homes for water and to lay their eggs. Once they do, they colonize quickly just like the german roach, except they are much bigger, braver and creepier. Now for the past 3 years I get rid of them for 1-3 months but they keep coming back. Even though this infestation is primarily in the kitchen, I have seen them in every room of my house. I crushed and placed Harris tablets everywhere. It will not get rid of them all overnite, but you will notice the reduction of bugs almost immediately. I have had them crawl right into my coffee cup next to my bed AND ON MY BED so at night all dog bowls, cups, dirty dishes and food should be secured/and or put away. I am hoping this will be the final time I have to deal with these disgusting bugs. My house is very clean, but that DOES NOT guarantee you do not get roaches here. What is does do though is make it possible to get rid of them with a lot of help from Harris tablets. I have Harris tablets in my house at all times and will place the tablets every couple of months continuously so I can get rid of these detestable bugs for good!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality, Good Shape
I live in South Florida and moved into a home that had been vacant for 3 years. When I moved in I had a big Palmetto bug/American Roach issue. I would see 2 or 3 big (2 plus inch) every couple of days. I sprayed the outside of the house, hired a pest control company and had the drains cleaned. Going through that reduced the bug count but after 90 days I still had an issue. I read about making Boric Acid cakes on line and went to Home Depot to see ifthey had straight Boric Acid. They didn't. After reading the ingridients on the package I noticed that these were basically Boric acid cakes pre made the size of @ 4 penny's stacked together. I figured for $5 why not try em.
I placed them throughout the house as indicated and threw another dozen in the atic. For a couple days I would find a dead one around the house here and there, but now 30 days since application I have only seen 1 and it was dead in the storage closet. These tablets work great, are easy to apply and a lot cheaper then a monthly pest control call.
Bravo to Harris and to Home Depot for selling them.
I live in a rental unit and started seeing silverfish in my bathrooms on a near daily basis. Yuck. Scattered some tablets under the sinks and in crevices near an exposed pipe about 5 days ago. Since then I've found one dead bug and haven't seen any others. I'm quite happy so far.
Crushed pills and put powder around apartment and in cabinets. Haven't seen a roach since using this method along with hot shot liquid roach killer. This power combo is the perfect 1 2 punch to rid yourself of these bugs. Helped get rid of those pesky larder beetles too!
I had a major problem with silverfish in my cabinets. I tried NUMEROUS products, none of which worked at all. I was about to give up when I saw these tablets and gave them a try. About a week after placing them around I noticed a lot less silverfish, and within 1-2 months I didn't find any more live silverfish anywhere. I am so happy, I don't like bugs in my house. This is the only thing I have found that works on silverfish. I replace them regularly and I have not had a problem in the last year and half.
Give Roaches gastric distress. This product causes a bad case of gas and the bugs blow up. End of Roach. Period. I've used Harris Roach Bait for years and it works every time. Take away their food, give them Harris to eat and watch em' die.
Best bang for the buck going and it's quite safe when the directions are followed. Buy with confidence.
Works even better with Roach Motels.
Pros: Great Quality, easy to dispose of when finised, Economical, Easy to Use
I bought these and started using them even before i fogged my house.. I moved into my house and it was already REALLY infested with roaches!! they ate and went through these tablets like candy. lots of them just everywhere!!! but after also using the Real-Kill 2 oz. Ready-To-Use Indoor Fogger (6-Pack) & these tablets there are still a few roaches coming out but not going through the tablets as fast because there arent many roaches left..i plan to buy some more foggers and that should do the trick.. overall very satisfied with both products i purchased!! :-)
Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, Functionality, Great Quality, work extremely well
I purchased the product for my sister for an apartment that she shares with a friend.
She stated that within 12 hours of putting the tablets out they found dead roaches everywhere they were put down.
This seemed to work great for a bit, but after a few days it seems the population came back. It seems there is an apartment below them that has a real serious hoarder that can't see they have a roach problem.
Overall it seems to be a good product but with the additional problem below can not say they disappear for good.
