Not only do cockroaches bring about harmful diseases, they can also trigger an asthma or allergy with their saliva, faeces and shedding body parts. Cockroaches are capable of transferring Salmonella and E. Coli from one food source to another. This can result in fever, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and headache. In serious cases, they may also be life threatening. Therefore, it is important to eliminate cockroaches and prevent a cockroach infestation, especially environments associated with food handling.
Bingo Pest is an expert in pest management and can help you get rid of your cockroach problems at home or commercial properties including office, cafes, restaurants, hotels and more. In this article, we share more information about how our professional cockroach control works and how we manage a cockroach infestation. The topics include:
DIY Cockroach Solutions vs Professional Cockroach Control
You might be wondering the reason and need for a professional cockroach control programme when DIY and over-the-shelf solutions are readily available. Although self-help cockroach solutions may cost less, they may have limited efficacy and residual effect against cockroaches. Most of the time, these solutions are only able to get rid of cockroaches on the surface.
On the other hand, cockroach treatments conducted by a pest control specialist targets the root cause of the infestation. The solutions used are specifically designed to eradicate live cockroaches including the nymphs, their harbourage areas and most importantly, their nest. Various cockroach treatment methods will be deployed during every service to maximise the treatment efficacy while targeting the different areas of infestation. For instance, conducting residual spraying to kill adult cockroaches and placing of baits or monitoring traps to keep track of the level of infestation.
How Does Bingo Pest Remove Cockroaches?
A pest management treatment at Bingo Pest is broken down and categorised into the below:
Cockroach Pest Inspection
Firstly, an extensive and thorough evaluation of your property will be conducted by our experienced pest specialists. This process aids in the diagnosis of several key information relating to the roach infestation. They include:
Cockroach harbourage spots
Level of infestation
Areas where cockroach activities are found
Housekeeping issues leading to the infestation
The inspection includes hard-to-reach areas or blindspots that are often missed out by property owners.
Implementing the Cockroach Control Solution
Every cockroach control service is carried out by our NEA-certified pest specialists who have undergone a series of internal training programmes. Our specialists customise each plan based on the situation of the cockroach infestation to meet your budget requirements.
A cockroach treatment may consist of different methods such as the use of gel baits, residual spraying or misting. Depending on the findings by our cockroach control expert, each treatment may include a combination of these solutions or carried out on its own.
An effective cockroach extermination programme involves a combination of treatment, recommendations and prevention. Establishing a partnership with our pest specialist is an important element contributing to the success of the programme. You are encouraged to carry out the recommendations and advice provided while paying attention to the high risk areas to further prevent cockroaches from entering your property.
Monitoring the Cockroach Infestation
Our pest service specialists will apply monitoring measures including the use of glue traps and granule baits to keep track of the infestation and cockroach activities in your property. Furthermore, a detailed service report documenting the treatment information such as the cockroach solutions applied and expert advice including housekeeping tips will be provided after every service. These reports help us establish a deeper understanding or identify trends from the cockroach removal programme to prevent any potential re-infestation.
