If you visit a Japanese home, especially in the summer, you will probably notice them: small round black objects with a curved top placed in corners of rooms, or behind or under furniture and big appliances. If you have seen them but were too shy to ask, the answer is that it's the Earth Black Cap Cockroach Repellent, one of the most effective anti-cockroach products you can find and a staple in the Japanese bug repellent market for almost two decades.
The Earth Black Cap Cockroach Repellent work on the bait principle: they contain food that bring the cockroaches to them but also the insecticide Fipronil that not only poisons the roaches who eat the bait but also all the others that later eat their excrement or carcasses. Available in packs of 18 or 36 pieces, these little black caps take care of your cockroach problem for about six months, enough for even a long summer! For better results, place between two and four of them in areas of about 5 sq m (53.8 sq ft) and then forget they are there – and cockroaches, big or small!
