Tombstone / Cockroach Trap


“Tombstone” conveys the idea of a genuine tombstone for roaches. Roaches crawl into the trap just like getting into their own grave. They like to crawl over chinks; the cross-shaped holes play an important role to build a “tempting trap”. These holes may block the connection among the roaches when they are in danger. They would warn their companies by giving out liquid pheromones. That’s why it’s more efficient. “Tombstone” is absolutely different from the original traps. The slippery upper part of it stops roaches from going up makes the users feel cleaner. The special switch can help the users easily renovate the sticker without touch it.
