PEST MANAGEMENT
COCKROACHES
Of all the species of cockroaches, the one that has the greatest potential for becoming persistent and troublesome is the German cockroach, which prefers indoor locations.
PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH COCKROACHES
Cockroaches may become pests in homes, schools, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and virtually in any structure that has food preparation or storage areas. They contaminate food and eating utensils, destroy fabric and paper products, and impart stains and unpleasant odors to surfaces they contact.

People are repulsed when they find cockroaches in their homes and kitchens. Cockroaches (especially the American cockroach, which comes into contact with human excrement in sewers or with pet droppings) may transmit bacteria that cause food poisoning (Salmonella spp. and Shigella spp.).
German cockroaches are believed to be capable of transmitting disease-causing organisms such as Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., hepatitis virus, and coliform bacteria. They also have been implicated in the spread of typhoid and dysentery. Indoor infestations of cockroaches are an important source of allergens and risk for asthma among some populations. The levels of cockroaches and allergens are directly related to cockroach density, housing disrepair, and sanitary conditions.

Cockroaches usually live outdoors or in masonry enclosures away from buildings, only occasionally invading buildings themselves. It is important to correctly identify the species involved in a cockroach infestation so that the most effective control method(s) may be chosen.
HOW DO WE MANAGE IT?
Conducive environment which provide food, water and shelter are important considerations for a cockroach infestation in your property.

Environmental Essentials makes use of advance baiting technology to get rid of German cockroaches in kitchens and food processing plants. The domino effect created through this system, kills other German cockroaches as well. This excellent system has been the hallmark of Environmental Essentials excellence and success.

Residual treatments are always considered for other cockroaches such as the American cockroach.

The type of treatment is only considered after a thorough inspection of your premise.
