The length of time it takes to rid your home of a cockroach infestation depends largely upon species and size of the population.

Many over-the-counter products homeowners utilise often prove ineffective against a cockroach infestation. These pests are extremely adaptable and may even be resistant to some home treatment methods.

The most rapid and effective pest control methods are those administered by trained pest control professionals. There are several techniques and tools that can be employed or recommended by these professionals to get rid of cockroaches including:

  • Reducing cockroach attractants like pet food dishes, drains, dishwashers, and trashcans, through cleaning, maintenance and proper storage.
  • Determining the source or entry point for the cockroaches – Are they being carried into the home, or entering under doors and through open windows.
  • Using traps such as glue boards, the applications of baits and residuals to cracks/crevices, harbourage areas and the exterior of the home.
