Cockroach Removal Treatment We Follow
Many types of insecticide treatments are available to get rid of cockroaches. Most are sold as aerosol sprays, liquid or while some are formulated as edible baits or dust. Insecticides treatment requires the removal of food and utensils from treated areas. Always read and follow the instructions.
Target the area where cockroaches prefer to hide when using sprays. This will vary depending upon the species. Avoid spraying floors, walls, baseboards, and countertops since cockroaches spend very little time in these areas.
A few insecticides used for cockroach control are applied as dust or powders. That most familiar to householders are boric acid and diatomaceous earth. Boric acid tends to be more effective for controlling cockroaches. Insecticide forms of boric are sold in bulk cans or plastic squeeze bottle with a narrow applicator tip. Apply dust as a fine deposit barely visible to the naked eye. Never apply boric acid onto countertops especially those used to prepare food. It should not be injected into electronic equipment as the dust could damage the components.
Bug bombs are effective against household pests. Insecticide canister is placed in the center of a room. Activated by depressing a tab at the top of the can. Foggers ingredients also tend to be repellent, causing insects to scatter and move deeper into wall voids and other hard to reach areas.
Baits insecticides formula will achieve results comparable to professional extermination. It contains a slow-acting insecticide combined with a food attractant. Cockroaches find and ingest the bait and crawl away to die. Proper placement of baits is the key to success. Treatment places for cockroaches include under/around sinks and toilets behind refrigerators, dishwashers, and stoves near trash containers and inside cabinets and storage areas. Applied with a syringe often are more versatile and efficient. With the help of a syringe makes it possible to inject many small pea-sized dabs of bait into cracks, corners, edges and other places where roaches reside. Don’t put out large globs or lines of bait. Many smaller sized placements are better. Avoid spraying around your bait placements with cleaning agents or other insecticides, as this could discourage cockroaches from taking the bait.
