Cockroach Control with Eco Friendly Gel and Herbal Applications

Cockroach Control with Eco Friendly Gel and Herbal Applications


German cockroaches: Usually observed in the Rooms, kitchens, cabinets, Stores,linen Room & pantries.

(a) Mode of Treatment:

Cockroaches spend little time out in the open places that are hard to see and reach is where they tend to be. Dark, secluded areas near food, warmth, and moisture are preferred so a bright flashlight helps when performing inspections. Emphasis should be on finding and treating preferred harborage locations, rather than randomly spraying baseboards, countertops and other exposed surfaces. If key harborage areas are missed problems are likely to continue.

Method of Application will be as follows-

1. Sprays: When using sprays, target the areas where cockroaches prefer to hide. As mentioned previously, this will vary depending upon the species. Be sure to spray any aggregations or areas with fecal spotting.
2. Dusts: A few insecticides used for cockroach control are applied as dusts or powders
3. Baits: Cockroach baits contain a slow-acting insecticide combined with a food attractant. Pests find and ingest the bait and crawl away to die. Non-exposed roaches may succumb as well after indirectly ingesting trace amounts of toxicant expelled in the sputum and feces of exposed individuals.

(b) Frequency:

Mention the frequency depending on the type of premises/level of infestation.

(c) Pest Management log sheets:

As required will be maintained with details of the chemicals used and areas with date & time of treatment and client signature etc. Inspection card/Progress report (IC/PC) will be generally used in most of the cases. However specially designed log sheets will also be used in some cases depending on the type of client.
