DIY Home Pest Control

Home Pest Control – Sure a can of RAID will kill an occasional German roach, but not a German infestation. German roaches multiply faster than you can kill them one at a time, you will lose this battle. Our friends at Pest Control Equipment.com tell us, “A German cockroach is unique in that she carries the ootheca (egg sack) for nearly the entire incubation period. Once hatched all roaches develop with gradual metamorphosis. Development from eggs to adults takes 2-4 months.” Reinforcements pouring in and here you are fighting them with a one shot musket? Want to get rid of German roaches once and for all? Use professional pest control products when you do home pest control and get professional results.

A good Home Pest Control start

  • Remove food and dishes from cabinets and drawers; then vacuüm crumbs and clean thoroughly with water and dishwashing detergent and a sponge. Let dry.
  • Now use a good roach gel bait in cabinet and drawer corners and under the sink. The product label will tell you how and where to place the gel and how much.
  • Prep your home with residual insecticide mixed with an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR).
  • Then use a pesticide dust in wall voids and cabinet bases.
  •  Now you are in the fight with weapons that can cause the battle to turn in your favor.
  • Good sanitation and follow-up treatments will rid your home of German roaches.
