Cockroach killer reviews

We test 24 cockroach killers in the CHOICE labs, including products from Mortein, Raid and more.

Last updated: 1st October 2013

Cockroaches are famous for their hardiness – how, you might wonder as you chase them with a rapidly-emptying can of bug spray, are you supposed to kill household pests that could survive a nuclear blast? Well, it's unlikely you'll ever be completely rid of cockroaches in your home, but there are ways you can control them.

American cockroaches are large and ubiquitous, while the smaller German cockroaches mainly live inside. In our test of three types of cockroach control, we found that some were effective only on one species.
