Laboratory evaluation of three traps against Periplaneta americana (L.) and Blattella germanica (L.)






Tropical Biomedicine 11(1): 11-15

Laboratory evaluation of three traps against Periplaneta americana (L.) and Blattella germanica (L.)

A study was initiated to evaluate the effectiveness of 3 cockroach traps, i.e. Roatel trap, a beaker trap (600 ml) and a sticky trap (Trap A Roach Hoy Hoy (TARHH)), all baited with mouse pellets, against P. americana and B. germanica under laboratory conditions. Roatel significantly trapped the highest number of P. americana (16.20 + 1.94 cockroaches/trap), followed by TARHH (9.27 + 0.69 cockroaches/trap) and beaker (7.00 + 0.90 cockroaches/trap).
