Q – What is a standard treatment for cockroaches?
Standard treatment is a combination spray, gel, dust treatment of required areas.
Q – I am seeing cockroaches in other areas apart from the kitchen.
This means you have a severe infestation, where a premises would need a “Nupro gassing” treatment in addition to the standard treatment. A severe infestation will probably need a follow up. It must be noted that some severe infestations may need more than one follow-up.
Q – Is there a smell during after a cockroach treatment?
There is very little odour/smell during or after treatment.
Q – Do I have to leave home/the premises during the cockroach treatment?
One does not have to leave home during the treatment. If a gassing treatment is needed, then the premises/house must be vacated for a minimum of 7 hours.
Q – Do we have to empty out the cupboards before a cockroach treatment?
If cupboards are overfull, with foodstuffs, old newspapers, plastic bags, etc, empty them by half. We must be able to put a nozzle into the back of a cupboard. Also check the food cupboard for “past sell by date” foodstuffs plus those that have not been in sealed containers for a while. (eg. – pastas, rice, biscuits and cereals)
Q – Can I spray with Doom etc to sort out cockroaches
The use of domestic aerosol sprays can cause a cockroach to drop it’s egg casing, thereby starting another nesting area. Spraying Doom etc, after a professional treatment can also affect the quality of the professional treatment
