Controlling of cockroaches may prove to be a difficult task since there are two main types of cockroaches and both of them are eliminated using different kinds of techniques. In case you need help in identifying and controlling the kind of cockroach that has invaded your home, you can contact our company, JPC pest control Gold coast and we will be able to assist you the best way we know how. Our experts will also guide you on the various treatment options that are available.
One of the common cockroaches is known as the German cockroach which can cause a lot of damages and can even cause sickness. For this reason, it is very important for you to get rid of these cockroaches as soon as you notice that they have invaded your home. We apply various methods and techniques for the control of cockroaches. One of these methods is the use of cockroach baits whereby they contain an insecticide that is slow acting which is put in a food attractant. This is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of roaches as they tend to feed mostly on the baits and after a few hours crawl back and die.
For the cockroach bait to work efficiently, it is important to know that you need to place them in the right place where you are sure the cockroaches will reach them. A reduction in the number of cockroaches that are living in your house should start between one and three weeks.
Another method that our company uses in the controlling of cockroaches is the use of Boric acid. This acid is very efficient in the controlling of roaches in your homes, business areas and restaurants as well. Unlike many insecticides that cockroaches can develop a certain repellence on, boric acid has no kind of repellence what’s so ever and that is why it has been seen to be very effective. Cockroaches return to the areas that have been treated with boric acid until the time they die. The boric acid should be put in areas like the dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, plumbing walls and also into cracks and along the edges and corners of the cabinet where most cockroaches like to hide. It is, however, important to note that if you are applying the boric acid by yourself to properly follow the instructions and ensure that you have followed the instructions to the fullest.
