Professional Cockroach Control Solutions

Cockroaches are not only dirty and can contaminate food in your home, but they can also carry diseases making them a serious health hazard. Not to mention, they are extremely difficult to fully exterminate using shop bought insect killer. This is why you need to call in a professional in cockroach control if you spot a cockroach in your property, before the problem gets significantly worse.

Here at Protecta Pest Control, we specialise in using traditional trapping methods to eliminate any traces of cockroaches in your home or business, leaving you stress-free and causing as little disruption to your day to day life as possible.

Pride can stop a customer from calling in the experts. We do not assume that your home is dirty if you have cockroaches. Cockroaches can come in from a variety of sources. They can hitch a ride on bags and suitcases, come through cracks and airbricks or sneak in from the next-door neighbour.

The important thing is not to waste time in calling the professionals to make your home safe as quickly as possible. 

Cockroaches in Homes.

If you’ve spotted even just one cockroach, you can assume there are many more – perhaps hundreds – hiding beneath your kitchen units, washing machine or dishwasher, or in cracks, crevices and cavity walls. Not to mention that they breed rapidly and so the infestation will only get worse over time!

Having a cockroach infestation in your home can be more serious than you think, as they often carry harmful bacteria which cause food poisoning in humans and other animals, such as salmonella, staphylococcus and streptococcus.

Cockroaches are nocturnal and like to stay in the darkest places in your home, so there’s a good chance you could have a cockroach problem and not ever actually see a live cockroach. Other signs you should look out for are droppings, eggs, damage to food or packaging, shed skins and unpleasant odour (although you may not notice an odour unless you have a large infestation). If you spot any of these, get in touch with a cockroach control specialist today by calling us on 07398674924.

Cockroach Control for Businesses

Not only are cockroaches a health hazard if you’re running a restaurant, hotel, or any other establishment where food is prepared or sold – but the sight of cockroaches can also severely damage your reputation with customers. Even though cockroach infestations are more down to bad luck than bad hygiene, if people see cockroaches they are likely to put the blame on you.

Only a professional pest control investigation can identify the extent of a cockroach infestation and root out their hidden homes. You might manage to kill a few cockroaches with shop-bought poisons and insecticides; but without attacking them at their source, their rapid breeding rate means they’ll replenish their population in no time.

Our cockroach treatment involves a site inspection, monitoring of the infestation, residual insecticides and hormonal gels for long term extermination and population control.
