Cockroach Control for Private Households
It would help if you fought cockroaches as quickly as possible, as time delays can lead to a rapid spread of unwanted guests to adjoining rooms and ultimately the entire house. This is due to the extremely high reproduction rate of cockroaches.
Cockroach control belongs in the professional hands of experts, as cockroaches are very resistant, and even the egg packets are protected from most pesticides by a chitin shell. The AAA Termites and Pest Control pest experts know exactly the behaviour and way of life of the various types of cockroach and adapt the cockroach control measures to the sensitive environment in your home.
Cockroach trap and cockroach bug spray
First of all: a cockroach trap or commercially available insect spray won’t help you any further. You’re just wasting precious time on cockroach control. A cockroach trap is just a sticky trap that is used to hold cockroaches when they overflow. This can only determine the infestation, but effective cockroach control does not take place in this way.
With insect sprays used in closed rooms, there is a risk of poisoning, as the chemical insecticides can get into the airways. In addition, insect spray can often only be used to treat surfaces, but the deep cracks, joints and cavities in which cockroaches can be found cannot be reached.
Before cockroach control
Before cockroach control is carried out in your home, there are a few things to consider:
- In the rooms to be treated, such as your kitchen, remove all open food and leftovers before combating cockroaches.
- Carry out a thorough cleaning of all affected rooms, including all surfaces. This also includes the floor areas under appliances, kitchen units and the inside of the cupboards.
- Before combating cockroaches, remove all residues from cockroaches such as egg packets, excrement or cocoon residues with a vacuum cleaner. The vacuum cleaner bags used should then be destroyed.
- Please also note the information under Tips for cockroach infestation.
Cockroach Control by AAA Termites and Pest Control
AAA Termites and Pest Control offer you reliable emergency help against cockroaches. Our skilled pest experts know what to do as part of cockroach control to rid you, your family and your pets of cockroaches and give you your home back. All measures used to control cockroaches are optimally tailored to your sensitive living environment. There are several alternative methods of controlling cockroaches. The choice of control method usually depends on the location of the infestation, the intensity of the infestation, the type of infestation and the environmental conditions.
AAA Termites and Pest Control offer you a wide range of state-of-the-art cockroach control methods.
Regardless of whether it is fighting in the kitchen and basement areas or cavities, false ceilings, supply shafts or wet areas such as bathrooms, swimming pools, and saunas. One of the most common cockroach control methods is the cockroach gel method.
Fight cockroaches with cockroach gel
Cockroach gel is a poison for cockroach control used by our trained pest experts as part of the hiding place treatment in areas of the walkways, hiding places and nests of cockroaches. The big advantage of the cockroach gel is that it has a bait effect and works extremely quickly. The absorption of the smallest particles of the applied gel droplets is already sufficient to kill cockroaches within a day.
A positive side effect: cockroach gel for combating cockroaches also has an indirect effect, as cockroaches have the property of attacking weakened or dead conspecifics and eating them up. Due to this multiplier effect, cockroach gel can have a high radius of action as a means of combating.
The most important thing during cockroach control with cockroach gel is to remove all conceivable alternative sources of food. Only if there is no competition with the cockroach gel at the control place can it be ensured that the bait is accepted by the cockroaches.
Duration of action
As a rule, a significant reduction in cockroach infestation is achieved after just 7 days. A full repayment usually takes 2-3 weeks.
However, the success of combating cockroaches also depends on whether there are still egg packets in the affected areas. Depending on the development cycle of the various cockroach species, a final assessment can only be made after a few months, as the hidden egg packets are usually spared the effects of the cockroach gel. For example, in the German cockroach, the larvae hatch 2-3 months; in the oriental cockroach, at least 6 months. Only then can it be said with certainty whether freedom from infestation has been achieved. AAA Termites and Pest Control accompany this process through repeated treatments and infestation surveys.
Benefits of cockroach gel

- The quick onset of action, multiplier effect through cannibalism.
- No environmental pollution, no large-scale use of pesticides necessary.
- Very easy to dose, targeted application – also on vertical surfaces – possible in the vicinity of suspected roaches.
- The cockroach gel can be easily removed after control.
