- Glue Boards
- Insect Dust (A face mask is advised)
- A good torch
Trade secret – Use a vacuum to clean up any cockroaches you see as you work. This minimises the chance of any getting away & into other areas of your home.
To ensure that no pesticides get into or onto your food or equipment, emptying out your cupboards beforehand is highly advised
Using the insect dust & the torch, look under the kitchen benches, cupboards and drawers etc. Any Cockroaches you see, remove them with the vacuum & lightly puff the dust into all gaps and cracks you find.
We recommend the use of disposable gloves and a respirator when using the Crawling Insect Spray.
Using the correct mix rate (more does not help), make up a small mix of spray, set the spray on the finest setting possible and very lightly spray along the areas you saw the Cockroaches, along gaps, under benches, the floor under the fridge, walls, hot water cupboards etc
Repeat this process as you move through the kitchen areas. Do not forget about the back of the fridge, dishwasher, puff dust inside the vents of the microwave, the jug base, modem, tv, video game consoles etc
Open up the Glue boards and put small dots of Roach bait on the cardboard top. Place these behind the fridge, stove, microwave etc.
Due to the eggs that are hidden away that you cannot reach, you will get a flush of babies. The spray & dust should get them all. If not, you may need to repeat this process 1 month later in the areas you still see the pest.
