The furniture cockroach favours television and radio sets. As for the German cockroach, the most common one is identified by its dark brown colour.

Did you know?
Cockroaches defile food with their excrement. They spread an acrid odour which is able to alter flavour.
Cockroaches are harmful to your health!
They are actually frequent visitors to toilets, bins and larders. When they move about, they transport the bacteria from their environment. The excretion of cockroaches or any remains from their presence are found in the air of your living area. When mixed with dust, they can cause respiratory allergies and spread viruses.
To stop cockroaches invading your home, you should ensure that healthy living conditions are maintained. Do not leave any food out in the kitchen and use airtight containers to store food. To combat cockroaches, clean any dark corners of the kitchen and make sure that your living areas are properly ventilated.
Call our team of hygienist applicator experts who specialise in eliminating cockroaches. We apply droplets of food (or bait) to the targeted areas to contain any spread. We set up monitoring points (visual inspection) at access points to your home to monitor the development of potential colonies. We also apply the treatment to basement areas and common parts and establish a maintenance contract to follow-up your anti-cockroach treatments.
