We have successfully controlled large infestations of these pests and can offer pest control solutions that include eradication, monitoring and pest prevention – in domestic and all commercial environments. Cockroaches are notorious pests of food premises. They can also reach huge numbers in non-food environments, such as laundries and multi-occupational dwellings. Cockroaches carry pathogenic bacteria, which can result in food poisoning incidents.

In Britain we have two main species, the German Cockroach and the Oriental Cockroach. These are widespread and common.The American cockroach and the Brown Banded cockroach are less common in the UK.

Cockroach Control

Despite their notoriety, cockroaches are relatively easy to control. Treatments are easy to apply, very discreet and customer friendly. There are two main methods of control, gel baits and spray treatments. Gel baits are so effective that we rarely resort to spray treatments.

The gel bait is a food source that contains a chemical poison. It is applied in tiny droplets around infested areas. The cockroaches find the bait, feed on it and die. It kills all active stages of development, ie the immature nymphs and adults.

Spray treatments can be used in conjunction with gel baits. Spray treatments are often used to isolate populations, or prevent movement from one area to another.

Cockroaches need warm conditions to flourish. Kitchens provide a comfortable home for these pest. They love warm humid conditions and even a small amount of spilled food is sufficient to keep hundreds happily fed.
