I’m starting to see a number of cockroaches appearing in my restaurant Will your treatment kill them and do I have to empty out my food preparation areas for you to do a treatment?
Yes, a proper treatment knowing which species of cockroach is present will eradicate them. Cockroaches like warmth and darkness so its important kitchen areas are kept clean and no food scraps are present on floors, benches etc. . Our treatment for cockroaches uses a registered gel that is safe to use in food areas so you may not have to empty out your kitchen however if there is a large infestation, we may have to resort to a surface spray or steam vapour treatment which will entail removing implements etc. from your food prep areas as well, we will dust all motors with a special IGR cockroach powder.
I’ve seen some large black cockroaches inside my house, does this mean ill have a cockroach colony hidden somewhere?
The large ones you see tend to be outdoor cockroaches. These ones can fly and may have entered your home by crawling or flying inside. It’s unlikely a nest of this particular variety will be present inside your house.
I’m seeing some small brown cockroaches and some large black ones inside … is there a big difference between the two?
