Tombstone / cockroach trap


Everything on this roach trap has its unique function. Roaches like to crawl over chinks and crevices, the cross-shaped holes play an important role in such case: to build a “tempting trap”.

Besides, 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 is why it is more
efficient than other traps.

The new-designed switch can help the users easily renovate the sticker without touching the sticker. Just an easy pull, the nasty sticker with captured roaches will slip out of the bottom. The sticky pads are replaceable.
