THESE ARE THE COMMON HOUSEHOLD PEST THAT WE CONTROL
The cockroach population thrives in areas where food, water and shelter are readily available. Cockroach control at the basic level therefore involves reduction or elimination of these components from the environment. Although it may seem impossible to completely eradicate cockroaches from your dwelling, you can always attain a certain level of control, so that very few of these insects are ever seen.
Cockroaches have changed very little in their 400 million years on earth. Because they evolved as scavengers of dead plant material, they prefer carbohydrates to proteins or fats. However, when they are hungry, they will feed on almost anything.
Our technician will complete a thorough investigation of your home before starting this service looking for signs of cockroach activity as well as discuss with you any concerns you may have on site. Our technician will service all crack and crevices with a flushing agent designed to kill roaches found on site during service, some of these areas will include your windows, skirting boards, cracks in tiles and kitchen cupboards. Other areas will have a cockroach paste applied to them, this paste will attract hiding roaches, these roaches will feed on this paste rendering them unable to reproduce and eventually dying. A powder will also be blown into your roof void if required. Usually a follow up visit will be performed 10 to 14 days later.
Unlike roach control, which can be accomplishing by spraying some chemical agents around the home, rat control requires a completely different approach. Rats are intelligent animals that can sense many types of danger and avoid it to stay alive. Handling a rat control problem can be a difficult pursuit if you do not know some successful methods of rat control
First Step for Rat Control is Sanitation, Inspection and Exclusion
Inspection is the first step in getting rid of rats. After the inspection, you know where to set traps or place bait.
Exclusion of all possible entry points is the next step in rodent control to get rid of rats.Exclusion will make it difficult for the rat to enter your home or structure. Rats are easier to exclude than mice. Mice can enter an opening as little as 3/8" wide.
All openings greater that 1/4" should be sealed to exclude mice. For rats, all openings greater that 1/2" should be sealed.Next Step for Rat Control is Trapping or Baiting
