Cockroach pest control
Cockroaches have been on the earth for 250 million years. They are widely distributed pests that annoy and when abundant are destructive. Cockroaches destroy food, damage fabric in bookbinding and other materials. They spread diseases as they leave filth when they run over the food. Though there are 3,500 species of cockroaches existing in the world only two species are common and occur quite often.
To control them, two configurations are used:
1. Baiting Technology
2. Spray treatment
Baiting technology is emerging as a reliable alternative control method that produces maximum effect against target insects and minimal impact on human activity.
The salient features of this technology are:
No smell/ Odour
They can be applied in sensitive areas such as kitchen appliances, computers, electrical control boards, record rooms etc., as this technology contains low dosage of active ingredient.
No need to leave the premises during or after the treatment.
No need to empty drawers or cover up food or make any special preparations prior to the treatment.
In a Cascading effect - once the cockroaches have eaten the bait, they contaminate other cockroaches thus producing a cascade of self destruction throughout the cockroach population. This leads to quick eradication and no reinvasion.
Not a repellant but an attractant - this bait contains insect growth regulator as the active ingredient which acts on a specific species of insects like cockroaches. This active ingredient is mixed with feeding stimulants like food attractants and pheromones.
