What Is American Cockroach Pest Control Treatment?
The most effective way of treating American cockroaches is with a residual liquid spray. Micropest uses a non repellent, odourless, stainless and UV light resistant treatment made by the German company Bayer, called cislin. The the pest treatment leaves behind millions of Microdots of synthetic pyrethrum. We treat around the foundations and internal skirtings. When the American cockroaches walk across the cislin they pick up little microdots of pyrethium on their legs and when they groom themselves they ingest the pest treatment and die. Quite often the morning after a pest control treatment there are a lot of dead cockroaches outside.

American Cockroach Habits and Biology
Females produce many egg capsules, the eggs hatch in 50-55 days into greyish-brown “nymphs”. In the north they are commonly found in steam heat tunnels or in large institutional buildings. They prefer open spaces instead of cracks and crevices. When inside they can be found where its dark and moist like the basement, around the bathtub, floor drains and sewers. Out side they like hollow trees, woodpiles and mulch. Usually they live outside but will wander inside in search of food.
Stop water leaks, screen equipment overflow drains and take overflow water away from the buildings. Keep drains traps full or capped. Remove rotting leaves from window wells. Move garbage cans out of preferred moist habitat. Ventilate moist spaces. A pest control treatment combined with regular termite inspection to your house is a good idea so we can identify and address any physical and environmental issues that might cause the American cockroaches to proliferate.
