Signs That You Need Cockroach Control Service

The most obvious sign that you need cockroach pest control for your London property is the presence of live and dead cockroaches. They are especially active at night and may scurry behind appliances when the lights turn on.

Other obvious signs of a cockroach problem:

  • Droppings

Cockroaches leave faeces and other debris. If you have a cockroach problem, you may notice small cylindrical droppings, streaks, or smear marks from recent cockroach activity. They can also create an unpleasant odour. The odours may come from faeces and dead cockroaches. They hide in dark, moist areas, such as kitchens, under sinks, and in basements or crawl spaces. They can also crawl under the baseboards and trim inside drains or appliances.

Cockroaches are an annoying, disgusting presence and a potential health hazard. They can aggravate existing respiratory problems and increase the spread of certain diseases. Cockroaches also reproduce rapidly, making it essential that you solve the issue in a timely manner.

    How to Prepare for Cockroach Extermination in London?

    The first step in preparing for cockroach removal is cleaning the property’s infested parts and adjacent rooms. Any area that requires treatment needs to be free of clutter and debris. Tidy up rooms, sweep floors, and clean appliances.

    You may also need to contact your neighbours or property management if you live in an apartment or terraced housing. Multiple building areas may require treatment to keep the infestation from returning.

    What Does Cockroach Treatment Involve?

    The steps needed to exterminate cockroaches depend on the location and severity of the infestation as well the type of cockroaches. In some cases, we can exterminate them with a single visit but severe infestations may require multiple visits.

    We start by inspecting your London property for signs of cockroaches indicating an infestation, including droppings and the pest itself. A pest exterminator then applies poisonous gel bait or chemical spray to the areas where cockroaches are likely to reappear.

    The bait contains ingredients that attract cockroaches. After they ingest the bait, they spread it to the rest of the colony. The gel bait is safe to use around humans and animals, as we set in difficult-to-reach places. There is no need to vacate the building during or after treatment.
    For maximum results, we often recommend scheduling a two-visit cockroach treatment.

    The second option is Chemical Spray treatment. This method is recommended for Oriental Cockroach infestations. All untrained and unprotected persons must vacate the property during treatment and allow three hours before it’s safe to return.

    You may continue to see dead cockroaches for several weeks after treatment as the gel bait spreads through the colony.

    Here Is How We Treat the Two Most Common Types of Cockroaches

    German Cockroach

    For dealing with a German cockroach infestation, we strongly advise not to spray insecticides as that could spread the infestation and worsen the problem. We control German cockroaches by applying professional bait gels that have a domino effect. When the German cockroaches die from feeding on the gel, the rest start feeding on the dead bodies, which causes a second re-poisoning and provides high success rates of the treatment.

    Oriental Cockroach

    Our pest control and prevention practice has shown that baiting is also the method to apply in case of an oriental cockroach infestation. We use the best professional insecticides on the market. Thus we leave no room for compromise. Pest-proofing is key when dealing with these particular critters.
