Cockroaches Can Destroy Your Business
Due to their fast metabolism, roaches leave many droppings around where they live and or hide. For this reason, roaches are infamous for being highly unsanitary. They consume everything from skin cells to faeces and are known to spread disease and several viruses. Roaches have been known to cause asthma and many other illnesses. They are almost always a sign of unsanitary conditions.
For this reason, finding a roach in your commercial space can quickly spell out disaster for your company. The faster you treat the problem, the less likely it is that the problem will become catastrophic. Our team moves quickly to answer your call.
Cockroach Control Methods
Urban Pest Management applies a target-specific gel to control this species. This is an insect growth regulator and can be applied to infested areas without the need to empty cupboards. It is also unnecessary to vacate the premises making it the ideal product to use in commercial kitchens, thereby eliminating the need to treat after hours and a reduction in treatment costs. An insecticidal dust is applied to wall voids, cracks in paths and roof cavities. Residual surface treatment is used to sub-floor areas and lower foundation walls. An application of Pyrethrin surface treatment can be applied to internal perimeters.
