Our strategy for German roach flush involves a meticulous process aimed at targeting every aspect of their lifecycle. We start with Alpine spray using it along baseboards and spraying a bait line to intercept roach traffic.

Additionally, we incorporate insect growth regulators to disrupt their lifecycle and prevent future infestations. With a follow-up visit in 10 days, we ensure complete elimination and provide ongoing protection. 

11. Rodent Bait Stations  

Our rodent bait stations are strategically positioned around your home in areas commonly frequented by rodents. These bait boxes are carefully filled with bait that effectively dehydrates rodents upon consumption, ultimately leading to their elimination. Placed in key locations where rodents nest or travel, these stations provide a targeted and efficient method for controlling rodent populations on your property.
