I purchased and treated house on 07/06/2014. Based on the other reviews, I'm giving this product 5 Stars, and will edit review if not satisfied. The Tablets look nearly IDENTICAL to Altoids mints. I have a 2000+ Sq Ft home, and treated 3 bathrooms, the kitchen, 3 bedrooms, the sunroom, and put some in the attic, and the garage... and still had about 30-40% remaining in the box. Under sink in kitchen, in the far corner, I prepared a feast for the critters, including crushing one tablet into a powder for the already frail creatures. I have high hopes for this product, however, I also purchased this at the same time: Hot Shot MaxAttrax Roach Killing Powder with boric acid. I hope this review has been helpful.
Pros: Great Quality, cheap and worth a shot!!, roaches think they are breath mints., small box goes a long way., they don't smell or taste like altoids., if swallowed instructions included on box!!!, does not have added human lure!!
Cons: you'll never look at altoids the same again., have to learn to think like a roach to place them., children could think they are breath mints., you could think it's a mint and eat it., the roaches on the box make it look yummy.

Roach Poison (YUK??!) vs Human Breath Mint (YUM!!) Be Aware!!
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!!
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 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.
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.
