Cockroach control

With over 55 years of experience in professional cockroach control, Rentokil Hong Kong can help you avoid health risks and property damage in your home or business. Cockroaches thrive in urban environments and have become some of the most successful pests in the world. They reproduce rapidly, so a small issue can quickly turn into a large problem and concern for your property. With cockroaches, the saying goes, ‘there is never just one’ and we highly recommend contacting Rentokil at the first sign of activity.

Cockroach inspection & 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 stations

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 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. 

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.

How much does cockroach control cost?

Your cockroach control costs will ultimately reflect the time and effort it will take to manage them in your home or business. The first step in determining the cost of cockroach control is fully understanding the problem. What attracts cockroaches in your home? Why do cockroaches suddenly appear? How do cockroaches gain access to the building?

To answer all the above questions, Rentokil will need to visit your property to inspect for cockroaches. Following this, the below factors will determine the most suitable cockroach treatment and its associated costs.

Size of premises

The larger the property, the more time required to successfully locate and treat the cockroach problem. This will have an effect on the cost of the treatment.

Type of treatment

The treatment required to address the cockroach infestation will relate to the overall costs of the service. There may be a need to combine cockroach control treatments methods and use them in conjunction with each other, whilst other times one method may suffice.

Number of treatments

Sometimes cockroach management requires multiple treatments for successful control. This can be reflected with the pricing of the cockroach control service.

The severity of cockroach infestation

The size and extent of the cockroach infestation in your home or business affect the costs of the cockroach treatment service. Problem cockroaches are often perceived as those that have established residence within a property. They are commonly soldier cockroaches on a mission to return to their nest with food supply.
