Customers want cockroaches eliminated quickly, especially since they can induce asthma attacks and potentially transport pathogens. An integrated pest management (IPM) approach is necessary to effectively control them.

Before starting your treatment, conduct a thorough inspection and ensure you have the proper equipment, such as a flashlight, a mirror with extension arm, and monitoring traps. Search common areas of cockroach activity, including around sinks and other moisture sources, heat-generating motors, and equipment with compressors.

Your inspection should help you determine the cockroach species, the size of the infestation, and any potential harborage areas. All of this will equip you with the knowledge to properly tackle the infestation.
