Cockroach Treatment

Cockroach Pest Control and Prevention Specialists for Kent and the South East

A cockroach infestation in your home or business is a serious problem. As known carriers of numerous diseases including Salmonella and Dysentery, cockroaches pose a severe health risk. What’s more, if an Environmental Health Officer identifies cockroaches within your business premises, you could be fined, or even closed down until the infestation is resolved. This is particularly true where evidence of cockroaches is found in food production or manufacturing facilities.

Cockroaches breed rapidly and are incredibly hardy, making infestations quick to take hold and difficult to treat effectively.
