Cockroaches’ Bait

Cockroach bait is one of the most common methods of cockroach control. It is useful in indoor locations such as kitchens, food handling areas, hotels and hospitals.

Cockroach baits come in three formats:

  • Liquid
  • Gel
  • Solid

Cockroach control is effective due to its nature. The bait comes in solid, liquid and gel formats placed in common areas for roaches to dwell.

Once the roach consumes the bait, it then goes back to the colony and defecates. In this manner, further population growth and the current population removed.

Baits must be placed in various sites, close to other points of entry. Baits shouldn’t be in open areas, exposed, hot or wet areas. Remember to replace the baits to ensure efficacy. For quick control, an aerosol is sprayed by a homeowner. Always use a domestic-labelled spray and follow instructions on the label.

The treatment uses the nature of cockroaches to remove an infestation. The baits are placed in strategic areas where cockroaches are known to dwell. The toxins will affect the cockroach that consumes the bait and affects other roaches upon wasting.

After a cockroach has fed, they will often return to the nest, where they will defecate. Any other cockroach that consumes the waste will also be affected. Infection can also occur through direct contact with the toxins from the bait dispersed within its nest.

This creates a cycle of infection by passing it on to other roaches. Because of this, cockroach bait has a proven track record of successful control.

Fumigation for Cockroaches

Fuming is the traditional cockroach control method—the use of insecticides in a confined space. This process is highly effective for manufacturing, warehousing, agriculture and milling businesses.

The use of chemicals is crucial for warehouses that need urgent protection of their property.

The process involves sealing a facility where the infestation is at a high level. A gas is then released into the area to reduce the population. Fuming is an addition to other cockroach control services for heavy infestations.

Without a doubt, there are several fuming techniques. Steam ‘n’ Dry Pest Control Auckland cockroach control services use each one properly.

Never leave food out overnight, as this is an open invitation for the roaches to feed.
