Cockroaches

GENERAL INFORMATION

Cockroaches are common in commercial premises associated with the production or handling of food. Also in public buildings and domestic premises eg blocks of flats. Gregarious and nocturnal, they spend the day hiding in cracks and crevices around such area as sinks, drains, cookers, the backs of cupboards and in refrigerator motor compartments.
The females are classed as pests, all produce egg cases or oothecas, the eggs hatch inside the case and nyph cockroaches appear.

 

TREATMENT OF COCKROACHES

We will treat the internal wall/floor junctions of any affected rooms. They can also treat cupboards and work surfaces.

We use a residual insecticide. This means once it has dried, it will be toxic to the cockroaches for several weeks. Do not wash the treated area for at least seven days unless it is essential, as this will remove the insecticide. Seeing one or two cockroaches after an area has been treated is very common. If large numbers of cockroaches are present after seven days, a revisit may be necessary.
