What treatments do we do in Perth?

  • Inspection of Areas: Dan will inspect all areas including internal, external or directly affected areas.
  • Chemical sprays: Dan and the team will use chemical sprays for eliminating cockroaches. The chemical spray is not harmful to kids or humans.
  • Bait treatment:  In this treatment, the pest is easily removed from homes or external environment. The baits are for the continued protection of your home, as the cockroaches that survive the spray will use the baits and will die off.
  • Traps: Traps are an option, however, this will only be an option in certain scenarios.
  • Dust Treatment: This treatment is meant for infested areas such as roofs, gaps or cracks in the walls and flooring, and basement of the homes.

Prevent them from returning

Clean, clean and clean again. Wipe down counters every night, never leaving dirty dishes in the sink, making sure stove tops are clean. Clean and sweep the floors before you go to bed. This might seem like a lot but really it will only be a few minutes every night to keep the cockroaches away.

Seal up cracks and holes. That means inside your pantry, between the countertop and wall, and in the baseboards. Cockroaches can crawl through even the smallest of spaces, so it's important to seal the entries into your home. This may take time, but in the end, it's worth the effort.

Fix any water leaks. Cockroaches are attracted to moisture and water from leaks in pipes. That's why you often find them scurrying under your sink. Cockroaches can survive for months without food, but only days without water. Close off their water sources by repairing even the tiniest of leaks.
