Cockroach control

Cockroaches thrive in urban environments and have become some of the most successful pests in the world. Cockroaches are attracted to surroundings where there is food, moisture and warmth. They feed on a wide range of human foods and organic material such as cardboard, glue, faeces, dead animals and fellow cockroaches. They can pick up diseases from the filth in their environment and readily transmit them onto food and surfaces.

A professional service is one of the most reliable means of cockroach control. Only professional products and solutions are powerful enough to address a cockroach infestation in all stages of their lifecycle. Cockroaches rapidly reproduce, so a small issue can quickly turn into a large problem and concern for your property.

Cockroach inspection and monitoring

Insect monitoring units can support the early detection of cockroaches, enabling you to take quick action and control an infestation at the first sign of cockroach activity.

Cockroach baiting

Cockroach bait is one of the most common methods of cockroach control and is extremely effective in indoor locations such as residential and commercial kitchens, food handling and preparation areas, hotels and hospitals

Once a cockroach has fed on bait, it often returns to the nest to defecate. The insecticide-laden faeces, fluids and the eventual carcass of the infected roach will contain sufficient residual pesticide to kill other cockroaches in the same nesting site. 

Cockroach insecticide spray

Insecticide spray delivers effective treatment of cockroaches while leaving a protective barrier that helps maintain long-lasting cockroach control. Ideal for hard-to-reach cracks and crevices where cockroaches may be harbouring. Toxins in the insecticide not only affect the cockroach that makes contact, but also affects other roaches through secondary transmission by exploiting the cannibalistic nature of cockroaches.

Cockroach insecticide dust

Dusting is an effective method of cockroach control. The transfer of dust onto cockroach exoskeletons creates a cycle of secondary transmission which occurs through direct contact with, or ingestion of, traces of insecticide dispersed in the environment by contaminated cockroaches.
