Best 1 cockroach pest control methods
Best 1 deals with cockroach control using a variety of techniques, tools and products.
First, a professional Best 1 pest expert will visit the site and do an inspection to determine the details of the infestation (what type of roach and severity of problem).
If the infestation is not too major, the process of removal starts with a general spray and clean of trouble areas such as skirting boards, walls, garbage areas, exterior structures, etc. The spray is non-toxic to humans and water-based to ensure no harm comes to homeowners, children and pets. Then, a dust is distributed throughout the cracks, crevices and wall cavities. The dust we use is very effective because cockroaches come in contact with the substance and tend to spread it to the nest and therefore the other roaches. dust cracks and crevices.
If the infestation becomes severe, the same spray and dust treatment is used. However, we put a gel substance in cupboards/trouble areas that stays active for twelve months and is, therefore, highly effective in the elimination of the infestation.
It is important for homeowners to be aware that, in order to keep cockroaches from becoming a serious problem in the future, the areas must be kept clean and tidy to discourage their return. It is important to remember that typically after a treatment you may see an increase in cockroach activity. This is because some of the pest products Best 1 use have flushing agents in them, making the cockroaches run to try and escape the treatment. We also dust the roof void with an electric blower. This is placed just inside the man hole cover and the dust settles on the roof floor. This is very effective in eradicating cockroaches from a home.
One of the best ways to keep cockroaches out of your home is to keep the kitchen area hygienically clean. It pays to remove the fridge and dishwasher once a year and give the floor and the back of the appliances a good clean. This will help in reducing easy food for scavenging cockroaches. Cockroaches will eat just about anything and are one of the world’s most resilient pests.
One main area to try and keep clean in the kitchen is the cupboard hinges, this is where cockroaches will lay eggs and harbour. A tell tale sign that you have cockroaches present in your home is feces droppings in the cupboards and on the hinges.
