Cockroach treatment is generally a fairly simple procedure, but does require an integrated approach, with the combination of dust, gel and liquid applications to an infested property.
The most common cockroaches which invade our homes, are the bigger Australian, American cockroaches and the Oriental Brown, which are relatively simple to address. German Cockroaches, on the other hand, require a much more thorough treatment to gain control.
Generally speaking, the procedure of treating a normal property, excluding one with a German Cockroach infestation, would enatil the application of a quality cockroach gel, such as Scuttle, to the internal cupboard door hinges of the kitchen, laundry and bathroom areas. The gel should be in no more that a match head sized dollop.
Following the gel application, insecticidal dust such as Permforce, or Permethrin D 2kg should be applied to all cracks and crevices internally, and externally, including cupboard crevices, behind taps, pipe entries, wall cavities through weep holes and roof cavities.
A light Biforce 100SC internal spray of the skirting boards, and a less fine external perimeter spray of the building, including around all windows, doorways, under eaves, and downpipes.
The internal spray will provide a residual treatment which will help maintain internal control of cockroaches and other pests, whilst the external perimeter treatment will help to reduce the instance of external pest entry.
This method is most commonly used on the domestic General Pest Control, which is detailed for the treatment and prevention of cockroaches, ants, spiders and silverfish.
