Building 101: Bostik Roachkill

Learn about the paint that kills cockroaches

Shares

Roachkill is an acrylic emulsion paint with an active ingredient that kills and repels cockroaches. The surface painted with it becomes an insecticide-coated surface. You may use it in your closet area, under kitchen sinks, cabinets, walls, ceilings, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and other areas of the home.

Roachkill has no fumigation effect as the insecticide particles are embedded in the film of paint. When a cockroach comes into contact with a surface painted with Roachkill, it will pick up and absorb the insecticide particles attacking its nervous system and causing extermination.

It is very easy to use. Mix it until a homogenous consistency is achieved and apply it like a common household paint. Ensure that the surface is clean and free of dirt, oil, peeling old paint, and other contaminants. Stir it occasionally during application and do not mix it with other paints or add solvents.

Bostik Roachkill is available in 1L containers (P375.00) for small areas around 5-6sqm and 5L containers (P1,400.00) for bigger areas around 20-25sqm.
