The first step in Roach Control is IDENTIFICATION.
There are a lot of different species that you may encounter. There is the American, the German, the Smokey Brown, the Brown Banded, the Asian, and the Oriental. The first thing you want to look at is the visual characteristics. We want to look at the body size; we want to look at the different types of markings that may be on the body. Also we want to take a look at the harborage areas. Are they harboring indoors? Or are they harboring outdoors?
One thing that all these roaches have in common is that they need food, shelter and moisture. The best part about it is if you follow the Solutions four step process, you will eliminate all of your roach problems.
The second step in Roach Control is INSPECTION.
Let’s start on the inside of the house — the kitchen and the bathrooms. Inside the cabinetry, we want to look for droppings, smear marks, or even just activity itself. Up underneath the kitchen sink, where the plumbing penetrates the wall, is there a crack there? If so, we need to address it. Moving on to the outside, check around the perimeter of the house and the flower bed areas. Also, is there plumbing that penetrates the exterior wall? If so, check and see if there is a crack around there and we will need to address it. Around the windows or doors, are there cracks? Those will need to be addressed.
The third step of Roach control is CONTROL.
Let’s start on the inside, in the kitchen area. Make sure that you clean the countertops thoroughly. Pay attention to that stove top as well. Sweep up any crumbs that are on the floor. If you have a dog or a cat, and you feed them in the kitchen, make sure that food gets picked up each day. Also make sure that you take your garbage out.
The second part of the control process is the treatment. We will want to use a gel bait, such as Apex gel. The purpose of using this gel is to allow the cockroaches to feed on it, and then they go back into the nest areas, defecate, and the nymph stages actually feed on their feces, creating a domino effect that will wipe out the entire colony.
Gentrol Point Source is a plastic disc that has a cotton pad and an ampule. You crush the ampule, the liquid wicks into the cotton pad, you place the disc inside the cabinetry on the shelf. What happens is, the nymph stage of the cockroaches are exposed to the insect growth regulator, the gentrol. When they are exposed to it they are actually genetically deformed so they can’t reproduce giving you the long term control that you are looking for.
About ten to fourteen days later, you will want to apply a product called Novacide. The purpose of using the Novacide is to catch any of those stragglers that may not have been exposed to earlier applications of pesticide.
You want to make sure that you use a high concentrated product such as Reclaim I/T. You can apply this product as a perimeter application, and you will want to spray two feet up the wall and two feet out from the perimeter. Also, you can use it around windows and doors, if needed.
There is also a dust. It’s called D-Fense Dust. You can use this on brick veneer homes in the weep holes down at the bottom. You can use it in the attic, as well.
The fourth step of roach control is PREVENTION.
There are a lot of things that homeowners can do to help prevent re-infestations. Make sure you take that garbage out frequently. You don’t want trash sitting around for long periods of time. Check you sink. Do you leave dishes in the sink overnight? Do you dry the sink of all the moisture? All of these things will help you prevent future infestations.
