Chalk talk episode #1 Insect foggers and how German roaches survive

In my travels I come across many spent insect foggers. I find them in attics, crawl spaces, cars and campers just to name a few spots. Each can has a story I’m sure but almost all I’m afraid that were used for german roach control have the same ending. While I’m sure thousands of roaches died in the deadly mist, many more just found this assault a minor inconvenience and thrived once the cloud was gone.

In this video we discuss some of the reasons of how roaches survive our airborne attacks and hopefully you’ll consider a different approach if you are unfortunately infested with german roaches. I’m not totally against insect foggers and I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. They can do wonders on fleas or flying pest reduction but when it comes to the worlds most successful creature, the german roach, they hardly are worth the time. I hope you enjoy the video and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to share them.
