MOST POPULAR QUESTIONS OUR CLIENTS ASK US?
Why is it absolutely vital that you eradicate cockroaches? Is it just because they are dirty creatures that are one of those night-time nasties that
plague your kitchen at night?
No! Cockroaches are not only dirty but they carry diseases that could be life threatening.
What are the diseases and the sicknesses they carry?
What do they eat? Cockroaches don’t just feed on decaying food matter but they feed on faeces, starchy and sugary foods, grease and meat,
hair, leather, paper, wallpaper, and even on the toothpaste remains on your toothbrushes!
How do they breed? Cockroaches have 3 phases of metamorphosis: Egg, nymph and the adult stage. The incubation period for eggs is 3 to 4
weeks and 1 female cockroach can lay up to 2400 eggs in her lifetime! Her whole lifespan can range from 10 months to 2 years. Imagine how
many cockroaches you can have running around in your house if you don’t eradicate them soon enough!
How do I eliminate cockroaches? Due to their hardiness, resilient nature, and quick reproduction, cockroaches are very difficult to eradicate and
if you try to eliminate them yourself it could be a lengthy and ineffective and more expensive process. Your BEST CHOICE will be to contact
to handle your extermination of cockroaches. We find that the most effective treatment is a 3 prong attack in 2
different treatments, 30 days apart.
1. We apply a residual spray in and around all nooks, cracks and crannies! I.e. Along skirting boards, and behind and between fridges
and gaps. This is a repellent.
2. We then use gel bait which is applied with a syringe and placed in areas infested with cockroaches. In kitchen cupboards, near the
coffee maker, on the floor by the stove and on the wall behind the sink. Within 8 hours of touching or eating the bait, the
cockroaches will usually die. This is an attractant.
3. Lastly, we use a space spray fumigant which is used to knock down cockroaches from their hiding places. This is a repellent. They
then run around and walk over the residual spray and eat the gel bait… and die!
