German Cockroaches: Most of our calls on the Central Coast relate to eradication of cockroaches within homes and commercial premises. These roaches are mainly found in kitchens and usually underneath warm appliances, eg kettle, dishwasher, and fridge. These roaches are usually smaller than the average roach and they have the tendency to multiply and do damage to wiring and appliances. The best treatment option for eradication involves emptying of cupboards, access to appliances, use of non-repellent sprays, gels and dusts. We have plenty of experience with this species and are very thorough in our treatment.
