Cockroaches can infest even the cleanest of homes. Although sanitation and hygiene are important deterrents, minute deposits of grease sugar and other food sources, combined with moisture, warmth and harbourages can result in an infestation.
Cockroaches carry diseases such as salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and other stomach complaint organisms. They can also cause severe asthmatic reactions, especially in children, the elderly or people with bronchial ailments.
Treatments can be quite varied, depending on infestation levels, species and environment. They can be one or a combination of liquid spraying, dusting, crack and crevice treating, baiting and growth regulators, combined with hygiene and sanitation recommendations from the Pest Management Professional.
