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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable product I have used this product for years around my home. It does the job. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gets Rid of Bugs Works to get rid of ant. Sprinkle a little where you see a lot of ants or around ant beds and ants are killed. August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Got rid of the carpenter ants! After 10 years of no carpenter ants at our cabin, (thanks to Diazanon that you cannot buy anymore) They came back with a vengeance this year. Hit them first with liquid Home Defense and that killed them shortly after contact, but the day after they were still around. Spread a band of Home Defense granules and the next several days did not see one! July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the job. I like to try natural, non-toxic chemicals first to get rid of a problem. But that didn't work. My yard was infested by flying ants. Called a few professionals & they were very expensive. So, we tried this & no more ants. May 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bye-Bye Ants Ants drive me crazy, but when I use this, it drives them crazy. Shake it around your whole house and they eat it up. It smells like maple syrup. Only bad thing is when it rains you have to reapply. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product really works! Great stuff! After many years of fighting a loosing battle against ants, I finally found a product that really works. I've recommended Home Defense Max to my friends and they are now as faithful to this product as I am. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Use and Does the Job I leave near Phoenix and use the Home Defense Granules quarterly. Really seems to do the job and takes only ten minutes to cover my whole perimeter. April 26, 2016
