Treatment for German Roaches
Inside only. Reddish brown and about 1/2 inch long. Everything is treated inside that has been prepared. No need to treat outside.
How to Prepare
The following must be done before the technician arrives.
- Empty out all cupboards above sink and under sink, as well as all drawers. Everything has to be empty and put in another room and covered with a sheet. Nothing should be on the counter top or on top of the refrigerator.
- Do not scrub after we spray. Cupboards can be wiped out with a dry cloth afterwards. Counter top should be thoroughly washed.
- Empty everything out of bathroom cabinets.
- Empty everything out of the linen closet if you want it sprayed.
- Have everything off shelves and the floor of closets if you want them sprayed. If clothes are left hanging in closets, they may have an odor.
- Whatever you want sprayed has to be empty or it will not be sprayed.
Treatment for Oriental Roaches
Usually outside. Dark brown to black and about 1 1/2 inches long. The perimeter of house is treated outside along with power spraying through the vents. Inside is treated under the sinks and in lower cabinets if needed, but must be prepared.
How to Prepare
- If wandered inside, you should empty out under sink and lower cupboards only. This should be done before the technician arrives. This is an outside roach and likes it cool and damp.
- You need to plan on being out for 2 hours.
- All pets and birds should be removed from the premises for 2 hours. Fish tanks should be covered with a towel and circulator turned off or unplugged.
- If anyone has respiratory problems or is pregnant, we suggest checking with your doctor first.
You may see roaches for 7 days after spraying. This is normal. The spray kills immediately on contact. A flushing agent is used to get them out of the cracks and crevices. If the roach was not killed on contact and later crawls over the residue, when it cleans its antenna, the residue is then ingested and kills the roach that way. This is why you may see roaches during the 7-day period. If they are moving slowly, the roach is dying and no further treatment is needed. If he scurries away quickly, we need to come back and do another treatment. There is no charge for this treatment.
