No more jitters about crawly critters-our new roach bait belongs to a family of insecticides called flurosulfonates. Discovered and patented by ARS scientists, these compounds work to control cockroaches, ants, and termites-insects that live in groups or colonies. The chemicals work especially well because insects carry the insecticide back to their nests to share with cronies.
