About Cockroaches

The Oriental Cockroach

• Dark brown-black, 20-25mm long
• The male has wings that cover two-thirds of its abdomen

General preventive measures against cockroach pests include frequent cleaning in the kitchen, keeping all food stored away in sealed containers, using rubbish bins with tight lids, and regular vacuuming. Repair any water leaks such as dripping taps.

Cockroach Treatment:

To treat a cockroach infestation we would apply a residual insecticide into all kitchen cupboards and units, behind fridges and freezers and other kitchen equipment. An insecticide gel applied into cracks and crevices, gaps in tiles and around pipes etc.

Usually 2 visits will be required, but more treatments may be necessary. For heavy infestations or large premises, such as hospitals, blocks of flats etc, we would recommend a pest prevention contract providing regular treatments over a twelve month period.
