OUR COCKROACH CONTROL SERVICES
FREE COMPREHENSIVE INSPECTION
A Javelin surveyor will conduct a thorough survey of your property in order to clearly identify the nature, extent and source of your cockroach and other pest problems.
Post inspection, you will be given a survey report. Our survey report will include:
One or a combination of the following treatments will be recommended:
INSECTICIDAL GEL BAITING (IGB)
Insecticidal Gel Baiting (IGB) is a modern pest control treatment used for the extermination of cockroaches in indoor areas. This treatment involves placing small dots of gel bait (containing a food source laced with an active ingredient) around the infested area. Cockroaches are lured to the bait and once consumed are killed by the active ingredient.
IGB is extremely effective as, due to the cannibalistic and coprophagic nature of cockroaches, cockroaches often feed on the carcasses of other dead cockroaches. These dead cockroaches will often still contain the active ingredient, thereby leading to further killings. This is called the ‘cascade’ or ‘domino’ effect.
This targeted treatment avoids the risk of food contamination and can specifically be designed for use in kitchens and food preparation areas to minimise disruption.
INTERNAL RESIDUAL SPRAYING (IRS)
Internal Residual Spraying (IRS) treatment involves the spraying of insecticides along skirting boards, under sinks and at the base of appliances, and all other potential breeding and harbourage areas. The insecticide we apply creates a coat of residue which forms a protective barrier to cockroaches, preventing re-infestation.
Javelin’s insecticides are designed to stay active for long periods, with a much higher residual life than local products. This means we do not have to return as often for treatment, minimising the disruption to your day-to-day activities and saving you money, while still being effective.
INSTALLATION OF MONITORING DEVICES
We will deploy monitoring devices to monitor activity to detect a cockroach re-infestation as early as possible. This will enable us to administer an even quicker and more effective treatment. It also helps us confirm which areas have a higher level of activity, so we can focus on these key areas.
We guarantee to get back to you within 24 hours (Monday to Friday) to arrange an appointment.
