Hi, I'm Trevor with Monster Pest Control, we're located in American Fork, UT. We're talking about how to rid your home of insects, this topic is how to get rid of cockroaches. A couple things with the roaches is always have a good inspection. You should always check around your dishwasher area, refrigerator, oven areas, as well as, inside of any drawers in the house, checking to see if you have any of the droppings. Droppings look like a little pepper, that's kind of dribbled all over the place. Often, if the roaches are really bad, you'll find them all over your cabinets, inside, outside. What we're going to do is we're going to be checking and showing you how we do the treatment, underneath the sink area. As we inspect underneath the kitchen sink, you check for all the little crevasses and corners. When we begin treating, we use our hand sprayer, I've changed the material in it, and we spray around the edges and corners, trying to get any place where the roaches may be hiding and where they are. I have a machine here, it's a fogger, that I use a pyrethrin material that chases the roaches out. Basically, you spray it around, you get around to the areas they're located in, back in the crevasses, back in the corners where you can't see. It's going to chase them out, putting them into the material and killing them instantly. There's other different methods that I actually use besides using these two machines is different types of bait. Depending on the severity and the problems and issues that arise, we'll use either a bait or a liquid application, if it's really bad, a mixture of both, depending on setting and location and homes.
