  Abstract  
  Several issues were addressed which were thought to impact the performance of cockroach baits. These included responses to bait matrices such as speed-of-action, indirect toxicant uptake, physiological and behavioral resistance, and associative learning. Bait application approaches were also considered, leading to a discussion of a field method which reduced within-treatment variation, thereby providing better assessments of the intrinsic properties of cockroach baits.
