Answer: 
Home Defense Max Granules will not control roaches. However, Home Defense Perimeter and Indoor Insect Killer will control roaches. You may not see them die immediately, but you should see a reduction in number after a few days. If you have any additional questions, please call 877-220-3089.

No, I don't think so. Although I have not used this product for roaches. However, there is a spray made by Home Defense that kills all kinds of bugs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surprised! I have purchased this product before, but they must've changed the formula. Last time I purchased the product was white now it's brown and not as good. Also, when I got it home I realized the container had already been opened. The product wasn't as effective when I used it this time. I will not purchase this product again, however, I did buy Amdro Roach Block on Amazon and it is amazing!!
