How to prepare for a German Cockroach Treatment?

Empty Kitchen Cupboards

It is advised to empty all your kitchen cupboards to receive the best treatment and erradication of the German Cockroach. They live in dark areas of the cupboards and hide and feed in those areas. The Technician can then apply the gel in the areas that the cockroach lives.


After emptying your cupboards it is better if you don't clean them. The treatment will be more effective. The Technician then can inspect the movement patterns of the cockroach and apply gel in the correct spots. It is advised but is entirely up to you.



Treatment Time

Also they will conduct a Enviornmental Inspection Report to make sure that it is safe to conduct the treatment as required by the EPA (Environment Protection Authority).

Gel Cupboards

Gel is applied into the kitchen cupboards and other areas where the German Cockroaches are hiding and feeding. 


The Gel attracts cockroaches to feed on the gel. Once they have fed on the gel they go back to their harbourage where the natural insect toxin then kill the cockroaches. They die and then infect other cockroaches, This 'viral' effect gives you the elimination result.

Dust around applicances

Dust is dispensered under the fridges and dishwashers.

Please put dead cockroaches in the bin. Cockroach do feed on the dead but only if there is no other food source. Get rid of them quickly by making the gel their food source.
