Cockroaches Control Methods
Using Glue Strips
Using glue strips, large infestations can be localised. To order to position strips, a decision must be made on the most sensitive areas and those areas must be monitored for a few days to a week.
Using Caulk Gaps
Caulk traps can be effective in decreasing established populations of cockroaches but this does not eliminate roaches from outside trying to get in.
Using Gel Bait
Gel bait may be an effective killer of cockroaches. This comes in a tube and can be placed under baseboards, in cracks and crevices, and near places that attract roaches most likely.
Hotels or Bait Stations
Using “bait stations” is a common method of disposing of cockroaches. By attracting roaches to feed on the poison, those work. So a poisoned cockroach must fly back to its nest position where it dies and is eaten by the other cockroaches, which further spreads the poison.
Setting Cockroach Traps
Cockroaches are nocturnal animals and are rarely seen during the day so it can be difficult to detect an infestation. The existence of cockroaches can be verified by the use of cockroach traps. Cockroach traps can kill only single insects and can not destroy or monitor entire infestations.
Foggers emit chemical mist into the air. Such chemicals in the mist are capable of destroying pests like cockroaches, but they don’t always get into cracks where roaches will hide. Cockroaches have shown resistance to chemicals in foggers, so the exposure does not harm them. Fogging items must be used with great care, as furniture and fabrics may be harmed if not used correctly.
Using Cyper WP
Cyper WP kills on contact, and in a matter of seconds, every cockroach that makes contact with it dies. Cyper WP can be mixed with water and sprayed with spraying devices at suitable locations.
It is very easy to gently dust the boric acid powder using a special dusting method. This powder will stick from touch to the cockroaches legs and cause their exoskeletal destruction.
