The saliva, cuticles, faeces and cast skin acts as allergens that can trigger asthma attacks meanwhile, they themselves act as the carriers of pathogens that causes life threatening diseases. They can move from filth to food and transfer the microbes that can contaminate the food, kitchen utensils led to food poisons as well. They will discharge a nauseous secretion both from their mouths and from glands opening on the which makes a bad odour and asthma.

4000, living verities have been thriving since the age of Dinosaurs in the world who can run 3 miles in an hour. Among this, four eminent species; American Cockroach, German Cockroach, Oriental Cockroach, Brown Banded Cockroaches, are abundant in number and dangerous too.

American Cockroach - Largest one of the commonly seeing species which normally live outdoors. These cockroaches mostly prefer dark moist atmosphere as laundry areas, steam tunnels, sewer systems. It is relatively close to ‘water bugs’ but not in exact sense as it is not aquatic.

German Cockroach - The most dangerous among all those. They are prolific breeders capable of producing several thousand nymphs within a short span of time. They can survive anywhere- in kitchen and bathroom and even behind the clocks, cartons, grocery bags or wooden settings. Degree of spreading disease is unscalable; potentially the best pathogen carrier among the all.

Oriental Cockroach - They are moist loving guys always associated with cooler and damp areas hence called ‘water bugs’ They may occupy drains, sewage area, leaky pipes, beneath the refrigerators, sinks and washing machines and eat almost everything. Dangerous is they feed on human or animal faecal matter, decaying organisms and on garbage.

Brown Banded Cockroach - Brown Branded Cockroach is closely associated with human beings and the potential to affect our health, and it is an important source of allergens. It doesn’t require moisture resources to survive and capable to sustain in furniture, wall and, ceilings. They will eat both organic and inorganic materials as starchy materials, wallpaper, glue, paste, stamps and even nylon stockings.

So special training is required to differentiate each one and to opt out the exact remedy.
  • Some cockroach like German species has high prolific rate. So, replication will be within hours. If the key harbourage is not treated well the problems are likely to continue.
  • Knock and corners, edges may be treated so specific applicators is required to cover the hidden unreachable harbourage
  • A professional can assess the frequency of treatment required to remain the insecticide effective and to prevent reinfestation
