Pest Control

Cockroaches are difficult to eradicate, largely because of their secretive and nocturnal habits.  They may be found where there is a supply of food, water and warmth i.e. kitchens, housing, bakeries and food factories.  They can carry disease organisms particularly those causing food poisoning.

The two most commonly fond species are:

  • The Oriental Cockroach
  • The German Cockroach
