We also surround your house with long acting sands in the garden areas to create a barrier to the cockroaches and bugs!
- German Cockroaches.We use targeted spot treatments to where these cockroaches infest. The products we use are specialist sprays ( < 500ml!) for spot treatment application, specialist cockroach baits applied to crack and crevice and insecticide dust to voids. As the treatments are so small and targeted there is no stand down period for this service.

Does DIY cockroaches work?
There are couple of reasons DIY pest control is doomed to fail. Firstly the DIYer lacks experience as a result their efforts drive the cockroaches into crack and crevice. Making them even harder to to treat! Secondly the cockroach has survival mechanism that defeats your efforts. When stressed females flick away their ootheca ( sack of baby cockroaches) to safety. The adult female dies and then two weeks later customers report seeing lots and lots of little cockroaches! Lastly the EPA restricts the public from buying the best products and best chemicals.
