Cockroach Control

Cockroach control is important to treat roach infestations especially because cockroaches can live almost a month without food and about two weeks without water. They can live for up to one week without its head and they can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes.  


A cockroach infestation on your business or residential premises can:

  • Spread diseases (E.coli)
  • Contaminate foodstuffs
  • Damage goods — cockroaches will eat almost anything
  • Breed uncontrollably - making the problem more difficult to get rid of


Business Consequences: 

  • Alarm — immediate loss of customer and employee trust
  • Damage — to goods, foodstuffs and your health and hygiene reputation
  • Cost — can be considerable. Temporary closure may be necessary


The typical signs of Cockroach Infestations are:

  • Seeing live insects – cockroaches are night time creatures
  • Droppings – cockroaches leave a trail of black droppings
  • A musty odour


What is cockroach control?

  • Sealing entry points
  • Close cracks and crevices
  • Deny them food and water
