Methods of Cockroach Control
Before the exterminator arrives, you'll need to prepare your home or business for treatment. This will typically involve washing and drying all bedding, clothing, and linens on high heat, vacuuming all carpets and furniture, and decluttering the space as much as possible. You may also need to seal any cracks or crevices in walls or furniture to prevent bed bugs from hiding.
Your exterminator will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for treatment, so make sure to follow them carefully to ensure the best possible outcome.
How Do Professionals Control Cockroaches?
Professional cockroach control includes various methods that aim to eliminate cockroaches from the premises. The methods used depend on the extent of the infestation and the species of cockroaches present. Some common methods used for cockroach control include:
Baiting: Cockroach baits are used to attract and kill cockroaches. They contain a slow-acting insecticide that is taken back to the nest by the cockroaches, killing the entire population.
Insecticide Spraying: Insecticide sprays are used to kill cockroaches on contact. They are used as a quick knockdown solution in severe infestations.
Dusting: Insecticide dusts are applied in areas where cockroaches hide, such as cracks, crevices, and voids. The dust clings to the cockroaches' bodies, killing them over time.
Traps: Sticky traps are used for monitoring cockroach populations. They are not effective for controlling cockroaches but can help in detecting their presence.
Fumigation: Fumigation is a more intensive method of cockroach control that involves sealing off the premises and releasing lethal gas. It is usually used as a last resort in severe infestations.
