Gisborne Cockroaches

Stop Cockroaches from Invading Your Space - Call Ace Eradicators

Cockroaches eat virtually any animal or plant material whether it be fresh or processed from crumbs and grease to the vegetable gum used in book binding. They are nocturnal so occupants are often unaware of their activity.

Be aware that Gisborne Cockroaches may be active for up to ONE week after the treatment

  • Our recommendation for vacating the premises after the pest control treatment, is (2) hours.
    In the case of those with respiratory problems (e.g. Asthma), allergies and hypersensitivity to chemicals, we recommend a longer period.
  • Upon your return, open all windows and doors to ventilate the premises.
  • You may notice a slight odour from our treatment materials.
  • Where a residual spray has been applied (inside), it is done so to control the remaining insects and also prevent the pests from re-establishing themselves.

Say Good Riddance to Cockroaches - Call Ace Eradicators Now

A female cockroach can carry 40 young with it. When she is stressed she lays the young. Cockroaches take around a month to mature – so ONE MONTH = POSSIBLY A SERIOUS PROBLEM! Cockroaches need food, water and warmth – they don’t mind about the state of your house but a cleaner environment will lessen the food source.
