OUR PROFESSIONAL COCKROACH TREATMENTS
Before we carry out any treatment we carry out an inspection to determine the species present, the location of the problem and the potential causes.
The treatment will depend on whether the problem is due to large cockroaches (American or Australian cockroaches) or small cockroaches (most likely German cockroaches).

Blow powder into weep holes, sub-floors and roof voids

HOW TO PREVENT A COCKROACH PROBLEM
The key preventative action is to reduce the available food sources – maintain good hygiene;
Clear up any spilled food
Clean down and under the oven/fridge regularly
Do not leave unwashed dishes out overnight
Do not leave pet food bowls out with food in or unwashed
Food should be stored in tight “cockroach proof” containers
Put rubbish into sealed bins and stack away from the house
Fix any leaking taps/pipework – cockroaches love moisture.
As cockroaches like to hide in cracks and can enter the house/unit through the smallest of gaps, fill any cracks in the floors, walls and around pipework.
The large species of cockroaches often like to live in and around wood piles, mulch and garden debris, so keep such materials away from buildings.
Check incoming packaging material (such as cardboard boxes) for cockroaches and their egg cases. This is a common way for the German cockroach to enter your property and set up home.
If you are in an apartment block, it is important to have an overall pest plan for the building, as cockroaches readily spread from one apartment to the next through the shared pipework.

HOW DO COCKROACH BAITS WORK?
Cockroach baits are the smart way to control cockroaches. Professional cockroach gels contain a highly attractive food matrix and a slow-acting insecticide.
Cockroaches feeding on the bait do not die immediately but return to their nest. This is vital for success, as their vomit and droppings contain small amounts of the insecticide.
Disgustingly, other cockroaches find this vomit and droppings highly attractive and in eating it ingest the insecticide and die, wiping out the nest.
