1. Most Helpful Technique of Insect Control that Can Be Applied to Kitchen
February 07, 2013

The best way to control kitchen insects is to prevent them from entering the kitchen or becoming a problem once in the kitchen. The ones that turn up most are saw-toothed grain beetles, flour beetles and the Indian-meal moth. They are other insects such as the cockroach, larder beetle and carpet beetle, which turn up in the kitchen but they also inhabit other areas of the house. Ever wonder where they come from? Well, food may have been contaminated with insect eggs and sealed in the package. When the eggs hatch, the "worms" or insects are seen in the food container, when poured into the ... (read more)

3. Let Cockroach Survive Outdoor and Not Indoor
October 05, 2012

Why not show a little kindness to a cockroach? In an earlier study, researchers used computer simulations to show that, even with their tiny brains, insects have enough neural circuits to possess consciousness, and they may even be able to count. Kindness and compassion to animals should extend to those we refer to as ‘pests'. So many animals are labeled ‘pests' these days; from insects and rodents that invade our homes. After all just because you have compassion for the animals, doesn't mean you want to give your home over to them! Prevention is better than cure. Keep a clean house ... (read more)

September 27, 2012

Cockroaches in homes are a health hazard to many children and families because of the risks cockroach antigens pose to asthma sufferers.

"The allergens are cockroach allergens themselves. They are in the faeces because they are chem... (read more)

5. Proper Utilization of Cockroach Bait to be Effective
September 27, 2012

Firstly, to get rid of the Cockroaches you have to understand them a little. The cockroach is one of natures' best survivors! The first thing you should know about these insects is that they are not particularly picky when it comes to the type of food they are willing to eat, which is one thing that makes them so tenacious when they infest a home but also can work well against them when it comes to effective use of baits. Roach baits are formulations that are attractive to roaches and (when eaten by the insect) are lethal to roaches. There are different types of baits that can be used, d... (read more)

September 09, 2012

August 29, 2012

Homeowners attempting to control cockroaches themselves will find insecticidal baits and boric acid effective and relatively easy to use.Today's technology has so advanced that you can find roach-bait formulations designed specifically for certain types of roaches.

July 05, 2012
