Top Tip for Cockroach Control

Cockroaches are hardy insects!

TOP TIPS for prevention:

A clean house – especially the kitchen – is key to cockroach prevention and control.

Don’t let dishes pile up or leave food spillages on the floor or around appliances. Clean any food immediately so cockroaches and other pests have nothing to feed on.

Cockroaches are drawn to warm areas, eg behind dishwashers/fridges so keep these areas clean also.

Contact a professional if you suspect an infestation.
