Cockroach Control

Cockroach ControlRoaches are the most common pests attacking a household. They mainly concentrate in the kitchen, bathroom or storage areas of the property. Dealing with a cockroach infestation is really laborious, as the little creepers are very resistant and can withstand a serious amount of treatment: after all it is not in vain the common belief that in case of nuclear apocalypse roaches would most probably be the sole survivors on the planet. Having said that, you would easily agree that if you have a cockroach problem, you’d better call the professionals.

 

Natural methods often include a combination of entrapping, vacuuming, freezing and application of organic sprays. On the other hand the chemical extermination options include the following:

 

  • Baits are available in plastic child-proof containers. Their active ingredients are abamectin, fipronil or hydramethylon. The main advantage of the bait is that it can be placed precisely in the problematic area. Baits do not give immediate results and could take some time while you perceive their contribution.
  • Dusts and Powders are typically made of boric acid, and can be placed in the small cracks that roaches hide in. The main disadvantage is that they are messy and they are not recommended for use around children.
  • Sprays are often synthetic chemicals such as permethrin, deltamethrin, cyfluthrin and cypermethrin. They tend to give positive results quickly, but they are not as precise and are hazardous if not properly used.

 

Some say that the best way to get rid of cockroaches is to combine both natural and chemical methods. We say it depends. We believe that each case is different and we are to inspect the site first before deciding on which method will be the optimum one to manage the problem. We will coordinate our strategy with you in order to minimize the extent to which the treatment will cause you any discomfort and then we will quickly and meticulously proceed towards its realization.
