Harmful Health Effects

Because cockroaches eat a wide range of food, including rotting garbage, it is believed that they spread a number of diseases to humans including salmonella and gastroenteritis.

It is also common to be allergic to cockroaches.


Treatment

Cockroach treatment in both commercial and residential properties has become simpler with the general use of specific cockroach baits. The benefits include a discrete treatment regime and cascade effect of cockroaches being poisoned themselves after eating dead or dying specimens. 

The key to treatment is to find the source of the infestation. This can determine the type, source and extent of the infestation. We then use this information to select the correct registered pesticides to control the cockroaches.
