Can fumigation alone eradicate cockroaches?

Simple answer: No. Purely because the egg casing of the cockroach is very well insulated and protects the eggs inside from any external chemical or gas.

The egg case is known as the Ootheca and contains many eggs and is enveloped by a protein substance that gradually hardens into a strong, protective casing. Some cockroach species drop the egg case, while other species carry it until the eggs are ready to hatch. In order to successfully eradicate German cockroaches, you need to use a cockroach poison or bait in the form of a gel or a granule.
