Cockroaches are unpleasant insects that many people associate with dirty places and poor hygiene. Here at SOS Pest Control, we work with both domestic customers as well as business customers, especially those in the food service industry where the need to deal with any pest problem, but especially cockroaches, is an immediate concern, as well as a discreet one.
They are also unpleasant for the disease they can spread within the home and business premises and so, just for this health risk alone, if you spot a cockroach or two, call SOS Pest Control immediately.
Cockroaches are a resilient insect that breed rapidly, hence they become quickly establish and what starts as seeing one or two hopping about, soon becomes an infestation of massive proportions.

There is no doubt that a cockroach is attracted by the lure of food and so the clearing away of food and spillages need to be done quickly and effectively. Likewise, keeping things tidy and orderly in food preparation and storage areas will also go some way in preventing these insects from making their home in your kitchen.
SOS Pest Control are experienced in dealing with cockroach problems and like all pest problems, it is a problem better dealt with quickly, with professional-grade chemical treatments. As resilient insects, they need careful, yet effective treatment. This treatment starts with identifying the species, treating the infestation, followed by intensive cleaning into the smallest of crevices.
It may take more than one treatment, depending on the magnitude of the problem, but as with all pest control calls we receive, we also take time to look at prevention; sealing cracks in walls, around sockets etc., is an effective preventative measure as it blocks the access of cockroaches to your home or building.
