Pest Control for Cockroaches

Well you may have seen some cockroaches running about your kitchen, bathroom or other areas of your home. It may be time to call in some professional help to eliminate your cockroach problems. Cockroaches are prolific breeders and once they gain a foot hold in your home they can very quickly multiply and spread to most areas of your home.

Cockroaches are nasty critters, carriers of many diseases which they can very easily spread amongst your family, food and clothes. They are nocturnal creatures and don’t like being seen about during the day. Rest assured if you do see cockroaches around during the day this will mean that there is a serious infestation case going on in your home.

Chemical control for cockroaches.

This is the way a pest control business will treat for cockroaches in your home.

Surface sprays will be sprayed along all internal skirting boards and around the kitchen and behind the fridge.

Anywhere that the cockroach may be a problem can be given a surface spray treatment.

The sprays which these people will apply are not available for sale to the general public.These businesses have the proper licensees and training to correctly apply these spray treatments. These sprays are very safe for your family and pets and leave a long lasting residual effect against these cockroaches so once a cockroach comes in contact with the spray treatment they will slowly die.

It is a very good idea to also have your roof void dusted as well as cockroaches are often found living and breeding up in your roof void. The dust is applied via an electric duster which blows in dust to all corners of your roof void area, leaving them no place to hide.

Baiting should also be done in your kitchen and to all bathroom cupboards. All you need is a small spot applied to kitchen hinges. This bait is highly desirable to cockroaches and any cockroaches which may be around your kitchen will eat these baits and this will cause them to die off very quickly. These baits are long lasting and a must for cockroach control in problem areas.
